We offer our core classics and brand new adventures!

Surfing optimises the beach lifestyle of good vibes, great waves and sunshine. Our ISA and Beach Lifeguard qualified instructors will lead you through the fundamentals of surfing, from the paddle to the pop-up an all that comes after.

Bodyboarding is the highly addictive step-up from your holiday-special boogie boarding. As Europe’s first dedicated bodyboarding school, we guarantee to take your skills to the next level.

Coasteering will satisfy both the adrenaline-fuelled adult and naughty little child within. We re-write the rulebook and lead you on an action packed exploration along Newquay’s Gazzle coastline, a sheltered stretch of tidal caves steeped in history.

Super SUP and Stand Up Paddle boarding and is the world’s fastest growing water sports activity. Seeing as we’re number one, learn to SUP with us! Whether it’s with a group of mates on our giant inflatable Super SUP, or from the deck of your individual board, view the coastline from a new and exciting perspective.

Kayaking Tours and Adventures are one fantastic way to explore the nooks and crannies of Newquay’s coastline. Whether it’s a tour of Newquay’s beaches, the lagoon stillness of the Gannel estuary or the tea caves of the Gazzle, there is a kayak route for you.

Beach football and Volleyball make the perfect additions to a day of adventures or alternative to our water-based activities. We’ll set the stage on the flat sands of Towan Beach for some ultimate fun in the sun.

We offer exclusive packages for groups looking to experience unique and specialised adventures.

Cornwall Castaway: In 1971, a terrible storm left the lifeboat crew shipwrecked off of Newquay’s Towan Headland.
