Learn to surf with Newquay Activity Centre and our expert team of instructors. Our Private surf lessons are the ultimate beginner experience with personalised coaching. Alternatively, if you've surfed before and want to improve your technique, this lesson can be tailored to suit your ability. You are guaranteed to build confidence in the water and skyrocket your surfing skills!


The Private Surf Lesson is designed for the person who wants to improve at his or her own pace and receive expert feedback. The surf lesson will cater for you and only you. Designed to improve your surfing technique no matter your age, level or ability, our Private Surf Lessons can help you master moves in double quick time. You'll receive feedback on every single wave. Popular with young children due to the safe, close quarters tuition. The private surf lessons are open to children aged 3 and above. Children under the age of 8 need a parent or guardian to be present throughout their activity. If the parent isn’t a paying member of the group the child can still participate. However the adult needs to be waiting on the waters edge and be contactable by the trip leader by mobile phone.



You’ll receive a tailored class in surfing skills to suit your personal needs. Each minute of the class you will receive expert guidance from our International Surfing Association qualified instructors. It’s an immersive, comprehensive and addictive experience that you’ll want to keep practicing over and over again.

Not only will you have our surf instructor’s undivided attention, but they will carefully plan and adapt the surf lessons to your learning style and personal objectives.

You’ll get suited up in a toasty-warm Rip Curl wetsuit and ID vest in our purpose-built heated changing rooms. With lockers to store your clothes and valuables, you can head on down to the beach and enjoy your private surf lesson worry-free!



If you’re a complete beginner who wants to learn from the ground up, we might focus on things like paddling, board control and balance techniques. If you already have a bit of skill on a surfboard, we could look to widen your scope with different waves as well as trying out different boards. No visit to Cornwall is complete without attending a surf school, so why not treat yourself to a lesson that is going to focus solely on you. Our Private Surf Lessons offer an intensive level of private tuition, but they move at your pace. Something you won’t experience in regular group surfing lessons.

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.


We have a brand new, purposely designed centre for 2021 conveniently located near Towan beach. We have heated outdoor showers, heated changing rooms, lockers, separate male & female toilets and clothing storage. We also boast a brand new hire centre for all your needs after your lesson.


We recommend booking in advance, especially if you’re planning on visiting during peak season.  Book online today or contact us via our online chat and our friendly team will be more than happy to answer your questions. Book tomorrow's adventure today!
