Our Private Bodyboard Lessons begin with the basics – paddling out, learning to trim correctly and selecting the right waves for your ability. However, new goals are quickly attained when you first start bodyboarding, and it’s this quick progression that will really allow you to make the most from your private lesson.


Our Private Bodyboard Lessons offer an intensive level of one-to-one tuition that you won’t experience in regular group lessons when bodyboarding in Cornwall. You also get feedback on every ride so your performance will skyrocket, even if you’re a complete beginner. With our private lesson option, you receive all the instructors’ focus; this makes it easy to tailor the lesson to your particular needs.


We also offer a private group option if you want to learn with your partner, your friends or even your colleagues!



From the comfort of our heated changing rooms, you will be supplied with a top quality Rip Curl wetsuit, high visibility ID vest, fins and bodyboard. We also have storage and lockers to store your clothes and valuables before warming up on Newquay’s famous Towan Beach. Not only will you have your instructor’s undivided attention, but also they will carefully plan and adapt the lesson according to your learning style and personal goals. You’re guaranteed to boost your confidence in the water as well as your bodyboarding skills.



Our purpose-designed HQ is centrally located in Newquay town with surf shops and local eateries just a few-minutes walk away. World-famous Fistral beach is just a 10-minute walk from our centre, with Towan beach only a stone’s-throw away in the opposite direction. Here you will find Atlantic swell wrapping around the local headland into our sheltered bay, creating the ultimate bodyboarding conditions!


We don’t send our customers out on bodyboards that we wouldn’t be happy to ride ourselves; that’s why we only invest in the best quality equipment available on the market. We supply first-rate bodyboards, wetsuits and swim fins on our bodyboard lessons, putting you in the best possible position to kick-start your learning.


Our helpful instructors will provide you with the correct size bodyboard for your weight, the right size wetsuit for your height and the best fitting swim fins for your feet. This top-quality kit enables faster progression, bigger improvements and makes for an all-round more enjoyable lesson.


All equipment including wetsuits, bodyboards, ID vests and swim fins are provided along with changing facilities and safe storage for your valuables. We also have on-site lockers for bags and clothes so you don’t have to leave your gear unattended on the beach!

The Newquay Activity Centre Bodyboarding School is the longest running provider of its kind in Newquay. We have been introducing customers to the world of bodyboarding since 1997 and over the years we’ve helped thousands of happy students catch their first waves.

We have the necessary qualifications and experience to consistently maintain a high level of safety and fun. We are a two-time Gold winner at the Cornwall Tourism Awards and a Gold award winner at the South West Tourism Awards.

All of our bodyboarding lessons and courses have been designed by British Bodyboard Team Coach, Rob Barber. This means that when you learn to bodyboard with us, you’re guaranteed the highest level of unparalleled tuition in the industry.

With safety at the forefront of our lessons, we must advise that children under the age of 8 are welcome to bodyboard with us, but they should be accompanied by an adult and book onto a Private or Family Bodyboard Lesson.


Our purpose-designed centre, conveniently located near Towan beach, is your one-stop shop for ocean adventure activities in Newquay. We’re not in the business of just making a quick buck. When you book with Newquay Activity Centre, you get the care, attention, knowledge and feedback that you need.

On site we have hot showers, heated changing rooms, lockers, separate male & female toilets and clothing storage. We also have a hire centre for all of your needs after your lesson.

Bodyboarding really is the basis of our business. Newquay Activity Centre was founded on the success of our #1 European Bodyboard winning director, Rob Barber. This passion for bodyboarding filters down throughout the whole team and we love introducing new people to this easily accessible sport.
