Why join the Womens Bodyboard Retreat in Cornwall?

The ultimate UK bodyboarding trip, the Cornwall Retreat guarantees you a mobile week of hunting perfect waves on both Cornish coasts. You’ll not only get to surf the best waves of the day but over the course of the week you’ll get a real feel for this beautiful and culturally rich county, not to mention the long-lasting friendships you’ll make along the way!

What to expect?

Newquay, the surf capital of the UK is our hub, but we’ll also be taking you around the county and off the beaten track to places that only a few know about. We’ll find those gorgeous hidden gems littered along both of Cornwall’s intricate coastlines, making sure you bodyboard the best waves at the most beautiful spots, staying as crowd-free as possible. If you can’t make the full week, sign up for as many days as you like.

Who is this trip for?

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that the Bodyboard Coaching Week is just for experienced bodyboarders with established skills; this isn’t the case at all!

You require zero previous experience in watersports or bodyboarding to enjoy this week; all you need to bring is your love of the water, a sense of adventure and a passion for learning new skills. What better way to begin your bodyboarding journey, than with a deep dive right to the heart of this highly accessible and hugely enjoyable sport. After you’ve spent a whole week riding the best waves in Cornwall under the tutelage of our expert coaches, and made a firm circle of amazing gal pals in the process, you’ll be a fully anointed bodyboarder, and be raring to plan your next surf adventure.

If you’re lucky enough to have already discovered bodyboarding and are progressing towards green waves, then the Bodyboard Coaching Week is just what you need to help take your skills to the next level. If you’re an experienced rider who wants to finesse specific techniques, you’ll gain a lot from a week of focused instruction and video analysis. Our instructors have devoted their lives to the Cornish waves, so there’s not much they don’t know, and they’ll be excited to share their knowledge with you. 

Every waking minute of the Bodyboard Coaching Week will revolve around you, and your fellow guests. Ensuring everyone has a progression pathway mapped out, and is getting personalised coaching and focused video analysis to help them reach their goals. Sprinkle in lots of fun, friendship and female support along the way, and you have a recipe for one of the best weeks of your life.

Newquay (7 nights)

We have two luxury apartments that we use for our Cornwall Retreats.  They are both conveniently located within Newquay and have sea views.  You can walk to the beach from either, making free surf bodyboard sessions a breeze, or if you prefer to relax a little after your coaching there are numerous bars, restaurants and cafes handily located nearby.


  • Free use of a varied selection of hand-picked bodyboards that include a broad size range, materials, tail shapes, contours, and channel systems. These will be introduced to some sessions to help expand your knowledge of equipment. You can try a bat tail (for example) through our equipment store. But if you don’t have your own kit and need to hire kit, you can hire kit.
  • A variety of fins to try throughout the week to establish if you can benefit from a different shape, style, or brand.


  • Every day throughout the week our expert trip leaders will draw upon their collective 40+ years of experience to find the best waves for your ability. Expect to see a side of Cornwall that many will never see!

The evenings are for kicking back, enjoying a group meal with the crew on the retreat, grabbing a drink at the Fistral Beach Bar and watching the sun go down. Newquay is a great place for a walk through town in the evening and there are lots of great spots to eat, drink and people watch.
