Surf Instructor and Beach Lifeguard Courses

Becoming a qualified surf instructor and beach lifeguard is not only an incredibly useful qualification to have the dream job and earn good money at the same time.

We highly recommend the ISA Surf Instructor Course and SLSGB Beach Lifeguard Award (also RNLI’s Preferred award). Together these two courses and qualifications are the most widely accepted surf qualifications enabling you to work as a surf instructor both here in the UK as well as throughout the world.


Courses places are limited and come with a guaranteed interview to work at the Ticket to Ride Surf School in Newquay and Perranporth. Having done a season with us on the beach in Cornwall there is also the possibility of taking up a position  as a trip leader on one of Ticket to Ride Worldwide’s famous surf adventure courses to destinations including South Africa, Mozambique, Costa Rica, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.


BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR COURSE – Please note that the Terms & Conditions for surf training courses are different to surf lessons, hire and surf & stays. Once you’re ready to book your course, you can do so via the website by selecting your preferred dates. You will need to pay in full to secure your place, so ensure you’re 100% certain before doing so as payments are NON RUFUNDABLE. If you’re unable to attend your booked course then we try our best to transfer your booking to an alternative date in the same season. If your unsure about anything, give us a call before booking.
