SURFING

Try the sport of Hawaiian Kings and Queens in the UK’s cultural hub of surfing, Newquay! Our English Surfing School, sponsored by Rip Curl, is an ISA and Surfing England Awarded Centre of Excellence, making it a top choice for surf schools in Newquay!

Home to nine pristine beaches including the famous surf of Fistral, there are plenty of waves to be ridden around Newquay’s Atlantic coves. Our professional instructors offer tuition for all ability levels and have years of personal surfing experience to underpin their beach lifeguard and coaching qualifications. Whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned pro looking to tighten up those turns, we’ll make sure you are progressing quickly and loving the process.

COASTEERING
See the coastline up close like never before and get hands-on with Newquay’s ‘Gazzle’ cliff line. Steeped in history, this sheltered stretch sits opposite Fistral beach and is pocketed with smugglers coves and tea caverns. There are routes cut by Atlantic waves just waiting to be explored and it’s one of our favorite adventure activities at Newquay Activity Centre.

Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, adventure-loving family or raucous group of stags or hens, we offer nine coasteering experiences tailored to you and your requirements. Our Cornish coastline is a special ecosystem hosting extensive flora and fauna. History comes alive on our Heritage coasteers, wildlife takes center stage on our low-tide experiences and you’ll leap your way from the highest outcrops for maximum adrenaline on our high-tide extreme coasteer.

After a full safety briefing and tutorial about the correct techniques, you’re ready to hit the crags with our expert coasteer instructors.

You’ll traverse the rocky inlets once lit by candlelight before crossing natural rapids and leaping into deep water plunge pools. We provide wetsuits, helmets, buoyancy aids and heated changing rooms so all you need to bring is a towel and pair of well-fitting trainers.

SUP
Join us for the ultimate Stand-Up Paddleboard adventures in Newquay on our group based Super SUP, or individual SUP activities.

With paddles in hand, you’ll navigate your crafts along the coastlines into natural caves and rocky inlets accessible only from the water itself.

Superstition and ceremony were once commonplace where suspected witches sunk and ships became wrecks in Dead Man’s cove. Storms in the past took the lives of many smugglers and sailors, making secrets of their treasures and myths of their plunders. Only now can these secrets be uncovered as you retrace their routes once forged by the sea.

We’ll take you along some of Newquay’s most picturesque places, through crystal-clear tidal caves and glassy, wildlife-rich pools. See Newquay’s stunning coastlines from a whole new perspective on our epic SUP adventure activities with Newquay Activity Centre.

BODYBOARDING
Take your boogie boarding abilities to the next level and learn to bodyboard like a pro with the No.1 Bodyboarding School in Europe!

Simple to learn and addictive to master, bodyboarding is the perfect activity for maximum wave riding pleasure without the pressure of stand-up surfing.

We guarantee you will catch your first wave within 5 minutes of the lesson and, after learning the basics, we’ll take you to the next level. Whether you stay and play in the white water, or push out towards green waves for longer rides, our instructors will support and guide your progression on the best bodyboarding experience in Newquay!

KAYAKING
If laid-back sightseeing is more your style, check out our coastal tour with a twist! Our kayaking adventures offer a whole different perspective from which to view these craggy shores.

Just down from our HQ, you’ll launch from the protected beach of Towan after having learnt the techniques of paddling and maneuvering.

Hidden inlets, inquisitive seals and stunning landscape are the greatest show from the top of your personal craft, whilst the water around you becomes a window into the watery world below.

This is sightseeing in style and the perfect adventure activity in Newquay, Cornwall for all ages and abilities.

Check out our extensive selection of epic adventure activities and contact our expert team today!

SUPER STAND UP PADDLEBOARDING
Twice the fun, twice the laughter and twice the chaos; our super stand up paddleboard experiences in Newquay are guaranteed to have you grinning from ear to ear! With our super SUP giant decks capable of holding up to 8 people, this is the perfect adventure activity in Cornwall to book with your friends, family or stag and hen do in Newquay.

Launch from the sheltered sands of Towan beach – just a few minutes walk from our Newquay Activity Centre HQ on Fore Street. Learn how to navigate effectively as a team using the correct paddle techniques and basic manoeuvers taught by our industry-leading SUP instructors.

Choose from our huge range of awesome, action-packed Super SUP experiences. Depending on the level of adrenaline you seek and your area of interest (adventure, history, ecology), you’ll find something uniquely enjoyable and unforgettably exciting. From our high octane Super SUP + Coasteer and Racing Super SUP tours, to our more leisurely yet informative EcoSnorkel and Heritage Super SUP sessions; we really do have something for everyone!

COASTAL ADVENTURES
Newquay Activity Centre is ideally located in the adventure capital of Cornwall and it’s only right that we showcase all of the awesome qualities our coastline has to offer. We have the golden sands of Towan, the world-famous surf of Fistral and the historical shipwreck tales of days gone by. Our Coastal Adventures really break the mould and push your boundaries to an exciting yet enjoyable level of enjoyment.

If you’ve ever watched the RNLI patrolling the beaches of Cornwall and wondered what life would be like, well now you can cast doubt aside and try for yourself! Our Lifeguard Trials put you in the centre of the action with a full day of fitness challenges, ocean rescues and paddleboard skill tests. Combining three epic ocean activities, (rescue skills, coasteering, super SUP) our Lifeguard Trials were born out of a special request from the RAF. They were looking to provide their servicemen and women with a comprehensive course in watersport skills and beach safety activities. Our Lifeguard Trials are rewarding, motivating and confidence boosting!

Maybe you’d prefer to explore the history of Newquay and try our Cornwall Castaway experience instead. Taking place 100 years after a legendary shipwreck just off the town’s shoreline, our Cornwall Castaway recreates the challenges faced by the brave servicemen of the time. You will experience coasteering in Cornwall (escaping the shipwreck), bushcraft lessons and techniques (making a local cave your make-shift home) and also a super SUP tour of Newquay’s stunning coastline (making your way back to dry land). Adventure is rife on our Cornwall Castaway!
