OUR EXPERTISE

Our Newquay Surf School is the longest longest running, launched in 1996. Drawing from his experience as the British and English Surfing Team Coach, each surf lesson package has been bespoke designed by company Founder, Rob Barber, to cater for beginner surfers and those more experienced surfers.

We have 3 sister companies, Women + Waves, Bodyboard-Holidays and Outdoor Activity Instructor Academy.

Our Newquay Activity Centre surf instructors pass through a 3 month long training course prior to starting work with us, in order to deliver our surf lessons. With over 200,000 guests passing through the centre, more than any other surf school in the UK, our experience has been gained organically and reflects in our endless positive results. Our surfing instructors complete their Beach Lifeguard Qualification (or equivalent), their International Surfing Association qualification but notably also undergo ongoing in-house training designed by company founder and previous British and English Surfing team coach, Rob Barber.
