Experienced, qualified, industry leading instructors experienced with all ages
Learn RNLI lifeguard skills, then coasteering followed by a simulated team rescue using our Super Stand Up Paddle Board. Our Lifeguard Trials were born out of a request from the RAF looking to provide their servicemen and women with a comprehensive course in watersports skills and beach safety activities that are rewarding and motivating.
Now, with an irresistible balance of action packed, adrenaline-filled beach activities and invaluable coasteer skills followed by an escape by Super SUP, the Lifeguard Trials ticks all the boxes for a unique schools adventure!
How do Lifeguard Trials work?
The Lifeguard Trials are neatly divided into two fun sessions with a break for lunch.
The morning session
On arrival at the Newquay Activity Centre our team of friendly lifeguard qualified instructors will lead you down to Fistral beach where you’ll learn to perform some fundamental lifesaving skills that are part of the Internationally recognised beach lifeguard training course (SLSGB).
- A board rescue
- A tube rescue
- Rescuing an unconscious casualty
- Casualty lifts and carries
- Dealing with a 1st response casualty
- Identifying rip currents & tackling waves
- Basic first aid skills
The afternoon session
Depending on the tide and your school’s preference, we will find the perfect eco-focussed coasteer. Imagine clambering through old smugglers’ caves, climbing rocks & traversing cliffs, watching incredible marine life in their natural habitat, negotiating natural rapids and whirlpools, before attempting adrenaline fuelled sea cliff jumps!
During the your coasteer we’ll also stage a rescue scenario so as to give groups the opportunity to practice what they learnt in the morning’s session. With our monster stand up paddle board moored just off the coast, students and their teams will then devise a rescue and evacuation plan for our staged casualty. There’s no end to the twists and turns on this awesome beach activity.
