Welcome to Surf Kayak Coaching

COVID-19 UPDATE: Closed until further notice due to government restrictions. Events and coaching will start as lock down eases. Get in touch by email: courses@surfkayakcoaching.co.uk.

We are also working on a new website that will be launched in 2021.

Surf Kayak Coaching offers high quality, most convenient and innovative coaching in Cornwall and the South West.


We are based in St. Ives Bay, Cornwall, offering 4 miles of options on one of the most consistent surf beaches in the UK – which means more time surfing and less time travelling.  We even have access to the beach from the accommodation!


Lead coach is John-Paul Eatock (J-P), Level 5 Surf and Sea, who has surfed and sea kayaked all over the world and competed up to the Top 5 in wave ski.  We are the place where other companies come for mentoring, coaching and assessments.


We have a good range of equipment from sit on tops to glass surf kayaks.  We use video coaching (see examples on FB) as part of your learning, and have waterproof headsets that allow us to talk with each other whilst you are surfing.


Not only are we professional and safe, you will have fun whilst you learn, as we tailor the kayak coaching to suit your level. Your skills will improve and you have the option to work towards British Canoeing Star Awards or Leader Awards – find out more.
