November Surf Coaching Weekend

We’ve teamed up with multi award winning - Newquay Activity Centre to offer another awesome 2 day surf coaching weekend . We’ll be focusing on improving your confidence and giving your surfing a huge boost no matter what level you are!

All levels of ability are very welcome. You'll be with like minded people and taught by professional, qualified instructors. All at your own pace. 

We'll be based at Newquay Activity Centre's brand new location on Towan Beach.You can run down to the beach in a matter of seconds and surf super fun waves with a nice soft sandy bottom.  We can then run back up to our training room to get changed and get some fresh tasty lunches from some of Newquays famous salad bars.

Newquay is awesome in November! It’s a great time of the year for consistent swell and less crowds. We’ll make sure we wrap up warm and have plenty of hot chocolate post surf.

On Saturday evening after we're all surfed out and salty, we'll head to out for some well deserved hot food and drinks at one of Newquay's best gems! It's a really great time to get to know each other and soak up Newquay’s finest sunset! 

 We'll have a photographer and videographer snapping away throughout the weekend  so we'll be able to document your progression.  We'll have time to go over the footage with your instructor to help you see where you can improve. We'll also get some shots for you to take home at the end of the weekend.

If you’ve never been surfing before and you want to learn in a safe environment or you’re a keen enthusiast wanting to master the moves, this weekend is for you. 

This weekend includes:

  • Three surfing lessons with both beach and ocean tuition. Saturday + Sunday sessions are two hours long covering all aspects of surfing you wish to focus upon.

  • Encouragement and feedback on every ride paddle out and wipe-out!

  • Individual goal setting- breaking progression barriers down and taking you to the next level

  • Two of your in-water sessions will be filmed and these will be analysed. This will include demonstrations and move-by-move break downs to help you conquer every aspect of the sport.

This is one of the cheapest ways to travel. The bus station is located right in the centre of town and not far from the centre. If you let us know your arrival times we can meet you or give you some directions to your accommodation. Check out The Mega Bus or The National Express.

By train
Again, super easy! The train station is located in Newquay and super easy to navigate to your accommodation. Just let us know and we will help you find your way.

Likewise, if you’re flying into Newquay airport, send us your flight number and scheduled arrival time, and we’ll come and collect you. Good air links from Gatwick, Heathrow, Belfast, Manchester, Liverpool, Dublin, Glasgow, Dusseldorf and Stuttgart (full list here; https://www.cornwallairportnewquay.com/flying-to-cornwall)



We ask you to prepare a packed lunch and bring snacks for both days to keep you energised for your water sessions.. We offer free tea and coffee from our base at Towan beach and all eat our lunch while watching the video review sessions. We visit our favourite beach bar or local restaurant on Saturday evening and enjoy fantastic local food. Budget for around £12-15 for the meal.
