A coastal adventure

With staycations on the rise, Global Boarders are getting ready for another fun packed season in Cornish waters. 


Global Boarders makes its home at Gwithian Towans, widely regarded as the jewel in St Ives Bay. Gwithian’s three-mile beach is unspoilt by time, with views ‘to the lighthouse’ of Godrevy that inspired Virginia Woolf to write the novel of the same name. Specialising in small, intimate group and private lessons their team promise no detail is overlooked to ensure an unforgettable surfing experience.

At Global Boarders surfing is not the only activity on the agenda. Coasteering is one of the fastest growing adventure activities for families in the UK, and where better to experience it than from the rugged Cornish coastline? As the exclusive provider of coasteering adventures from Mousehole, the charming coastal village with fame as the home of ‘The Mousehole Cat’. You can expect to swim with seals, explore ocean caves, float through gullies and challenge yourself to take on rock jumps ranging from 2ft to 25ft! The only limit to this exciting ocean adventure is your imagination.

Family run, Global Boarders offers everything from surfing at Gwithian and Praa Sands and Coasteering at Mousehole, from £45 per person for a 2.5 hour session, to bespoke, week-long private family activity packages.
