Best locations in the UK
West Cornwall is the heart of UK wave riding for good reason. Over 10 beaches within a short drive mean that there are always fun conditions to be had on any swell or wind variable. We can choose from beaches that face north, south, east and west to match the wave to suit your ability. Our team of coaches also have years of experience in our other top surf locations outside of Cornwall.
J-P Eatock, Surf Kayak Coaching Director, has made it his life choice to live by the beach for the whole of his adult life, surfing a wide range of craft for over 25 years.
For a decade he lived in stunning Pembrokeshire, South Wales, putting in his foundation time at the local beaches and the bitches’ tidal race. He worked hard to gain his Level 5 Surf and Sea Kayak British Canoeing coaching qualifications that now make him 1 of only 6 practising coaches in the world at this level.
Throughout this time surfing, J-P has won King of the Wave at the Bitches, has come 2nd in Europe in Freestyle, coached the Welsh squad to victory in Freestyle and competed regularly in both surf kayak and wave ski. Plus, when there has been time, he and the surf kayak team have managed to surf extensively worldwide.
The team are experienced, passionate and professional coaches that are bursting with enthusiasm. Many of them have competed at a national level and are there to help improve your performance. Surf Kayak Coaching aim to coach all abilities – first timers, improve your skills if you are already a surfer, and help to transfer your skills from other paddle sports.
