Surf Hire

The Sunset Surf Hire/Demo Centre is the ideal destination for you to source everything you need to get in and onto the water!!

We have the best and most extensive selection of Surfboards, Body Boards and Wetsuits & Accessories available for hire or demo in West Cornwall.

Our RNLI Surf Hire Safety Scheme approved Surf Hire/Demo Centre has a great selection of boards split into two categories.

  • Swell Soft Surfboards - the ones we use for surf lessons
  • Surftech Soft Top Surboards - soft top, hard bottom, designed for intermediate/progressing surfers who want something more like a 'real' surfboard, whilst still maintaining the safety aspects of a soft board

In addition to our range of Surfboards and Body Boards we also hire from a selection of over 200 C-Skins Summer and Winter Wetsuits, with boots, gloves and headgear for those colder days.

There will be no lifeguard cover during the winter months on the beach, however hire will still be available depending on conditions.
