So you’ve decided to visit the Newquay Activity Surf School Cornwall, but you’re not sure which lesson package to take? The Private surf lesson is designed for the person who wants to improve at his or her own pace. The Surf lesson will cater for you and only you. So if you find that you’d like to spend more time focusing on learning to catch the waves in a prone position this is fine. Or if you only have a short visit to our surf school and Cornwall you may want to speed through the easier sections of the surfing lesson. With your own private instructor you can then concentrate on finessing your skills riding the waves for longer or using your surf lesson to learn to turn the board. Alternatively, if you have some previous surfing experience, the Private Surf Lesson will help you to really improve.

We regularly entertain guests who make a beeline for the Newquay Activity Surf School Cornwall, to enjoy the ocean at their own pace. Perhaps you are constrained by work/family commitments to make a group lesson? Or perhaps you’ve not faired well in a group dynamic before, or just want a surf instructor all to yourself! Receiving feedback on each wave that you catch is invaluable for fast progression, and learning quickly means more fun. With our Private surf lessons we will always aim to get you to the best conditions for your ability level. With Newquay’s 7 sandy surfing beaches available to us, you can be confident that on any given day, we will find you the best conditions …better than any other surf school in Cornwall.
