Learn to bodyboard at Europe’s first dedicated school!
Bodyboards are smaller and lighter than surfboards. We guarantee you’ll be catching your first white-water wave within the first 10 minutes of the lesson. It’s addictive to learn and requires practice to master, but with our expert instructors you’ll be riding high along the face of green waves before you know it.
How does it work?
You will get suited up in Rip Curl wetsuits and ID vests in our heated changing rooms, with lockers to store your clothes and valuables, before hitting Towan Beach.
Our coaching team of Surfing England qualified and fully insured instructors tailor tuition to your ability, having been in house trained by former European Number 1 and British Team Bodyboarding Coach, Rob Barber. You really couldn’t be in more experienced or safer hands when bodyboarding in Cornwall.
