We are super lucky to be located just above the beautiful Towan Beach. The wide expanse of golden sand is paved all the way up to the crystal-clear shoreline of Newquay’s turquoise waters. Popular with surfers, bodyboarders, kayakers and coasteerers, the cliffline surrounding Newquay makes for an epic aquatic classroom in which to learn these vital skills.


Our expert team of instructors are fully ISA (International Surfing Association) and Beach Lifeguard qualified with extensive experience working with children of all ages. Students are helpfully encouraged to push their boundaries whilst safe in a supportive environment.
