*Due to change over dates with accommodation, we're running a Friday-Sunday, with an optional sail on Monday * 


We base ourselves near Gwithian on the north coast at (optional) Gwel an Mor luxury accommodation and then travel to the south coast and surrounding beaches to find the best conditions for the group. This is the perfect opportunity to learn, sail and venture to different West Country beaches with professional guidance and specialist coaching from Simon Bornhoft. If the conditions vary, there's options for WindSUPing, Surfing, Biking and also Foiling. 


First of all, don't be put off by Gwithian's, Marazion and Cornwalls reputation for massive waves, it is perfectly possible to sail these venues if you're a regular south coast sailor or are eager to expand your windsurfing. We have had more days with easy, accessible conditions, than off the scale conditions. Plus we seek out the best places to sail to suit the conditions, find suitable waves and coach you in this amazing windsurfing environment. So if you want to explore new Cornish windsurfing venues such as Gwithian, Marazion, develop your Freewave skills, catch some real waves, be it WindSUP, freewave or wave board then join us for a truly memorable Cornish windsurfing experience! So please note that these trips go ahead regardless of conditions.


To join this course you'd to be able to sail a sub 115L board. If you're unsure of your level, then get in touch and we can advise you on if this course is right for you. The course, socials and whole adventure is £349 for the course/experience. Optional accommodation is outline below. There are local campsites, B&B's available but Gwel an Mor is a fabulous place to stay and worth the extra.


Stunning Accommodation Option

You can get low budget accommodation at local campsites or join us in the stunning luxury lodges at Gwel an Mor which have won the best holiday accommodation in Cornwall. Gwel An Mor Luxury 5* self catering lodges with gym, tennis courts, climbing wall, swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and a fabulous restaurant! Well worth it for that complete warmth and comfort after a full day on the water!

Beautiful location, great windsurfing, waves, downwinders, down-the-line waves, jumping, SUPing, surfing, biking, fine food, great local beer and 5* Luxury Lodge accommodation!



Who's it for?

If you can sail a sub 115L freewave board and are looking to expand your knowledge and try some Cornish waves, seek new locations and this course is ideal for you. If you can sail south coast bump and jump style conditions, you're ready for Cornwall. We seek to develop your wave skills, whether you are new to waves or trying to perfect your moves. In the event of poor windsurfing conditions, the trip still goes ahead and we add in extra activities like biking, surfing and WindSUPing to get the most out of our time in Cornwall.   


The Holiday & Coaching

The aim is to immerse ourselves for four days in great windsurfing and introduce you to wave sailing skills and wave environments. Gwithian and surrounding North & South Shore beaches offer various options and a great chance of waves. We cover choosing the right wave spots, tide times, launching tactics, encountering waves, jumping, front and backside wave riding and any other aspect of the sport! If the wind is light, then we'll either do WindSUPing, surfing, biking and still have a great time! We've been doing these West Country trips for nearly ten years and they are always popular, memorable and eventful sessions with a great bunch of windsurfers.  


What should I take?

All your main windsurfing kit, but no large camber induced sails allowed:)
So ideally bring a wave board and larger Freestyle Wave/Freemove board 100-120L, so you have something with volume.

Definitely bring a WindSUP (if you have one) or beg, borrow or hire one as they are super useful for this trip.
Any issues with that, let us know. Don't worry about bringing 7m+ rigs, if the wind is marginal we tend to try to do wave skills on WindSUP's rather than big sail blasting. But if you have room, by all means bring the large Freeride board. 

Toys & Other Activities

If you have space bring a mountain bike and it's not uncommon to bring a bottle of wine with a story linked to it! Onsite there's a swimming pool, gym, sauna, tennis, golf and fishing! Locally there's surfing and biking, so bring any other toys if that's your thing.


Food etc

Bring your initial breakfast, cereal milk etc and then it's possible to buy more locally. Depending on the group and how we're all feeling we'll either eat out, eat in resort, in the chalet or maybe BBQ, but we'll fine turn that down there. There's towels, hair dryers and all kitchen utensils at Gwel an Mor.
















Course criteria 
You must be able to sail a wave board and wind or no wind be up for a great Cornish adventure! Whilst the focus is absolutely on windsurfing, we will also seek both light wind and more varied adventures if the wind gods don't deliver. Surfing, SUPing, biking ad a whole lot more!

Other Holiday Highlights

Regardless of conditions, this trip goes ahead, so take all the toys! So as well as the windsurfing expect amazing country pubs, wine tasting, surfing, WindSUPing adventures, biking, hiking, BBQ's and a few surprises along the way!

"Many thanks for sharing more of the Bornhoft secrets, I knew my helis were missing something and I'll be improving fast tacks too. Duck tack's next! Thanks again."

Mick Rothwell

"Wow what a weekend! I learnt so many techniques, from rigging in a better way, how my stance should be for the varying conditions and various manoeuvres, just how far to lean out, etc. etc."

Neil Mclauchlan

I've just got back from the first post-course sail (I was away at the weekend) and I wanted to drop you a line to say how much my tacks have improved. I got round about 50% of them, which is waaaay better than I've ever managed before! Still a long way to go, but the afternoon course has made a massive difference; thank you. Looking forwards to Egypt

Graeme Burton

Neil and I had such a fantastic holiday, so thank you for everything. We will definitely go back if we get the opportunity

Sarah & Neil

I just wanted to say thank you so much for a great 2 weeks. I really enjoyed it and feel I have progressed yet again, thanks to your patient and incisive tuition.
