Newquay Activity Centre’s surf lessons are guaranteed to improve your child’s surfing knowledge, ocean skills and water confidence. We’re here to ensure the next generation of surfers are the best yet!

Our surfing instructors are ISA, Surfing England and Beach Lifeguard qualified as well as being trained in-house to reach world-class standards. From the beach to the water, your kids will be in the best hands whilst having the time of their life!


After a warm up of beach games to get the blood pumping, your kids will be taken through the practical skills of surfing. First we’ll try paddling and popping up on the beach, before hitting the shallows and practicing in the white-water. Smiles are guaranteed as they build their surfing skills under the expert eye of our industry-leading instructors.


If you want to surprise the family with this awesome day of adventure then drop us a line and we’ll make sure your child has the most unforgettable surfing experience in Newquay! Prepare for them to be seriously addicted as they stand up and ride their first wave towards the golden beaches – just make sure to have your camera ready!


This one of a kind 3 Day Kids Camp runs Monday to Wednesday every week during the summer.

Each session is 2 hours long, starting at 9am.

All equipment is included as well as full tuition and professional supervision at all times.

Each day when the lesson has finished you are free to keep the wetsuit and surfboard (or swap for a bodyboard) for the rest of the day to use as much as you like!


We’ve teamed up with our expert surf instructors to create a quiz to take the guesswork out. Take our quick What Level Surfer Are You Quiz to determine what level of surfer you are.


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.


We take huge pride in providing the best surf lessons and offering an amazing experience for our guests.  Don’t just take our word for it though, our reviews back this up!  We have over 3000 5 star Tripadvisor reviews and some amazing Google reviews…
