  • Overview
  • More Info

The Ocean Sports Centre is located on Carbis Bay beach. We have everything you need the moment your toes touch the sand – from lessons, beach hire (deck chairs & wind breaks) SUP safaris, eco tours or splash and dash equipment hire (kayaks, stand up paddle boards and sailing).

Our team of coaches and instructors coach at a national level. We are an accredited centre by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) and an accredited centre of excellence by the internationally recognised Association of Surfing Instructors (ASI).

And if all this is not reason enough to come visit us, Carbis Bay Beach is the only privately owned Blue flag beach in the country. You do not need to book for hire, just turn up at the beach.
