Super fun and educational

Move over grown ups, the kids are in town and it’s time for the most exciting SUP lessons yet! Combining adrenaline-filled exploration with vital water safety, our Kids SUP lessons in Newquay are adventurous, informative and addictive! Along with their experienced instructor, your child will witness the beautiful Cornish coastline from a new and unique angle whilst boosting confidence and broadening horizons.


Nothing quite beats the first time you try something so breath-taking such as stand up paddle boarding. It’s a buzz like no other and being big kids ourselves we’re specialists at helping young adventurers take their first experience to the max.


From the moment our sessions start to the second they end, our lessons for children are 100% safety first. We’ll get everyone kitted out in wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets and run through vital beach safety information before perfecting paddle strokes and basic manoeuvres on the beach.



Now for the exciting bit. We’ll take to the crystal-clear water and strike out around Newquay’s stunning coastline for an exploration like never before. As we explore hidden coves, craggy inlets and otherwise inaccessible parts of the coast, tales of smuggling and piracy will bring the area’s rich history and heritage to life. As our SUP boards glide over a wonderful underwater world, there will also be marine wildlife to look out for and, if we’re lucky, friendly local seals to say hello to!



Under the guidance and tuition of some of the most qualified, experienced and insured instructors in the country, adventures with Newquay Activity Centre are all about practical learning and exploring our coastlines up close. With us, children are encouraged to push their boundaries whilst being in a safe and supportive environment.

Newquay Activity Centre takes the fun of kids educational activities seriously; we have the qualifications and experience to consistently maintain a high level of safety and enjoyment. We are a two-time Gold winner at the Cornwall Tourism Awards and a Gold award winner at the South West Tourism Awards. Our children's adventure activities in Newquay are days-out to remember!

All of our instructors hold the current DBS requirements for working with children. We pride ourselves on inclusion and adapt our sessions to suit all ages and abilities. We’re not happy unless you’re happy, so book your kids activity today for a coastal experience that every child will remember!



We are super fortunate to operate many of our activities in the shelter of Towan beach. We choose the tide and weather times that deliver the very best conditions for SUP tours. However, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and sometimes she may have different plans for us. We always check the forecasted conditions but if the wind or swell picks up unexpectedly, we may need to change the time or location of your child’s tour. Alternatively, we can move the booking onto a different activity, safe from unsuitable or dangerous kayak conditions.


Over 95% of our tours go ahead unaffected by the weather but, in the unlikely event that this does happen, we have excellent back-up options for you to choose from. If we need to amend your child’s booking due to adverse weather, we will let you know in advance. (No need to call us). We appreciate your understanding.



Our purpose-designed centre, conveniently located near Towan beach, is your one-stop shop for ocean adventure activities in Newquay. When you book with Newquay Activity Centre you get the care, attention, knowledge and feedback that you need.


On site we have hot outdoor showers, heated changing rooms, lockers, separate male and female toilets and clothing storage. We also have a hire centre for all of your needs after your session. Extend your child’s day of fun and check out our hire equipment.
