Learn to surf at Tynemouth’s leading surf school,
It’s the most Fun Natural and Exhilarating sport you can try!
At the Tynemouth Surf Co Surf School we provide an informative and fun introduction to surfing for all ages with an emphasis on beach safety and respect for the ocean.
We are not a large “surf school” and consequently our lesson size is small. There are a maximum of eight people per instructor ensuring every student has time with the coach. Small groups sizes allow everyone to benefit from some one to one tuition.
The instructors are all experienced local surfers who subsequently aim to provide you with the best possible experience in a safe environment. Whether it’s your first time on a board or if you just need a little help to get you on the right track we are ready and waiting to assist you.
In addition to surfing GB accreditation our instructors all have a beach lifeguard qualification and have been DBS cleared. We are fully insured and copies of our risk assessments, normal operation procedures (NOP’s) and Emergency Action Plans (EAP’s) are available on request.
Where we are:
Situated between Crusoe’s café and the RNLI lifeguard base our surf school beach hut provides the base for all the lessons. In addition to being where we keep the equipment the beach hut has changing facilities, somewhere to leave your gear when you are in the sea and somewhere to rinse the salt off when you finish your lesson.

The surf school is generally running throughout March to October but the majority of lessons run during the summer season.
