Bodyboarding can be picked up so quickly that we guarantee every pupil will catch a wave! Fast learners will pick up pro maneuvers like threesixty spins and tube rides. Bodyboards are smaller and lighter than surfboards so your pupils are guaranteed to catch a wave within the first 10 minutes of the lesson. Even unbroken waves and the more tricky manoeuvres are attainable within an hour.


Our bodyboarding activities can be geared to feature current curriculum topics and learning goals. From science, maths, English language and literature, to personal development, social skills, self-confidence, motivational skills and physical development. Speak to our team about how we can arrange outdoor learning for your school group upon booking.



Bodyboards are smaller and lighter than surfboards; this means they’re generally easier to manoeuvre and quicker to learn on. These smaller boards, combined with a lower centre of gravity, make bodyboarding much less tiring than surfing. It’s also widely considered a much safer sport as the boards are made from foam and they avoid the sharp edges and fins synonymous with surfing.


Due to the nature of bodyboarding, your lower centre of gravity increases the feeling of speed. This means that catching even the slowest of waves will make your pupils feel like they’re whizzing past the rest of their classmates in a magnificent blur!



Under the guidance and tuition of some of the most qualified and experienced instructors in the country, your pupils will sky-rocket their skills in the cooling crystal-clear waters of Newquay!


Our team includes British team bodyboarding coach and former European bodyboarding champion Rob Barber. Our school bodyboarding lessons will introduce your pupils to outdoor learning under the guise of fun! From beach safety to paddling out and trimming across waves, they’ll learn valuable skills while having immense fun. With us, students are encouraged to push their boundaries whilst kept safe in a supportive environment.
