Are you looking for something different?
Our Family Surf Lessons tick all the boxes; they’re fun for all, memorable, active (a sure way to get them off their mobile phones and active), exhilarating, safe and comparatively low cost when compared to other family outings in the South West. Our Newquay surfing school’s family surf lessons offer an experience that will be remembered forever.
What will you learn?
At the Newquay Activity Centre’s Cornwall surfing schools, we offer two-hour private surfing lessons designed specifically with families in mind, where you’ll learn the fundamentals of surfing, ocean awareness, beach safety, surfing equipment and surfing terminology. We provide the perfect balance of fun, education and safety. What’s more, imagine how cool you’ll become when your children return to school with tall tales of surfing adventures!
We’ll teach you how to catch your first waves, ride white water breakers from waist depth right to the beach and how to stand up. Our team of Surf GB qualified and experienced instructors offer supervision and guidance throughout your surfing lessons so you learn quickly and safely in your own time.
What’s included in the family surf lessons?
You’ll be issued with dry, comfortable and stylish Rip Curl wetsuits and can change in our heated changing rooms with lockers to store your clothes and valuables. We hold a range of equipment for all ages and sizes and use premium quality Swell foam surfboards for all our beginner sessions, as they offer the most stable platform on which to learn. We guarantee the very best equipment of any of Cornwall’s surfing schools.
The Newquay Activity Centre Surf School Cornwall takes surfing seriously; we’re a certified ISA and Surfing England Centre Of Excellence and two times winner of the Cornwall Tourism Awards, our surfing lessons and courses have been designed by British Team Coach, Rob Barber and multiple British Champion, Johnny Fryer.
