Book your next adventure!

Newquay Activity Centre recently welcomed RAF St Mawgan Station Commander and several RAF families to experience a day of ocean adventures with their team at Fistral Beach.

The RAF St Mawgan Community Team recently launched a new RAF Families Wetsuit Programme to encourage children to enjoy the sea more and upcycle their wetsuits once they have grown out of them.

To celebrate the launch, Newquay Activity Centre donated 10 children’s wetsuits to the programme as well as hosting a free day of ocean activities for RAF families who are based at St Mawgan. Activities included Surfing, Bodyboarding and Lifeguard Skills.

The families were kitted up and briefed on the activities for the day and then headed off to enjoy perfect waves and enjoy bodyboarding and surf coaching with the Newquay Activity Centre team at Fistral Beach. Under blue skies and golden sunshine, the group of 24 children and parents embraced the surf on Fistral beach, riding waves and practicing some lifeguarding skills which covered ocean awareness, scenario training and beach safety.

RAF St Mawgan Station Commander, Helen Simpson was extremely pleased with the activities and organisation provided and said “Newquay Activity Centre put on a wonderful day for our personnel and their families surfing at Fistral Beach, the smiles were infectious! It’s great to be able to work alongside a trusted local business to help support and develop our people through adventurous activities.’

Newquay Activity Centre Rob Barber said “We are passionate about the ocean and encourage more people to get in the sea and to come and experience the different ocean experiences that we offer. We have a long-standing relationship with RAF St. Mawgan, supporting their RAF surf team and providing coastal based Adventure Training programmes, so it’s always nice to invite all the family down for a day of ocean fun. We are thrilled to be supporting this new wetsuit programme and we hope that some of the RAF personnel have caught the surfing bug! It’s also great to teach lifeguarding skills so that we are sharing knowledge about water and beach safety, we’re looking forward to welcoming the RAF Families back for another activities day in June”
