Why join the Newquay bodyboard weekend?

With a 75% return rate on these weekends – we get results! Why? … because Rob has lived in Newquay for more than 40 years, devoting every waking minute to scoring the best waves, giving him a unique knowledge of town’s 7 beach breaks, the best eateries, accommodation and nearby secret spots.

What to expect?

It’s our promise to maximise the bodyboarding fun throughout the weekend by making sure that you are in the right place for the best waves for your ability. We create separate ability groups which will see you developing your skills with likeminded riders of a similar ability level. On Saturday evening we will enjoy a group meal at one of our favourite local restaurants, the weekends are very social. We get results, but it certainly isn’t a boot camp, the focus is fun and improvements.

Who is this trip for?

Please don’t feel that you are too good or too inexperienced for these weekends they are completely inclusive. So, whether you’re an aspiring pro or completely new to the sport our Newquay coaching weekends offer tiered tuition and guidance to the best spots for each session. Learn that move that you’ve always wanted to nail and make long lasting friendships! Be sure to take advantage of our excellent onsite changing facilities and top class kit too.

But to be honest, most people that join our coaching weekend are ready to chill and grab an early night after a long day in the water.
