Our Top Rated Bodyboard Retreats

Are you ready to take your bodyboarding skills to the next level? If so, one of our bodyboard retreats might be just what you’re looking for. You’ll get to ride some of the best waves in the world, explore the most beautiful beaches and marine habitats, learn from the most experienced local instructors and meet awesome like-minded bodyboarders. 

Most importantly, our bodyboard retreats are a way for you to carve time out to invest in yourself. They are a safe space for you to learn new skills in a supportive and fun environment, and an exciting way to meet new people and experience the ocean in all its glory. Our personalised tuition means that you’ll be able to learn at your own pace, and stretch yourself as much as you can, knowing you have us there to support you every step of the way. 

Top Tuition and Video Analysis

Our bodyboard retreats focus on top quality coaching, enhanced by video analysis and surf theory. We approach your bodyboarding holistically, and aim to build upon your theory, practical skills and self awareness in unison to maximise your progression. In the evenings we’ll round up the day in a convivial fashion by going out for group dinners; relaxing and getting to know each other over great food. It’s a heartwarming way to reflect on the events in the waves that day.

Newquay BodyboardingThe best Bodyboarding Retreats in the UK

Born and raised in Cornwall, our business has its roots in Newquay, the surf capital of the UK. We run bodyboard retreats here year round, both weekend breaks and weeklong Cornish explorations. Our Newquay Bodyboard Retreat is our most tried and tested destination, and over the years we’ve had thousands of bodyboarding guests join us and build their confidence in the waves. There has been such an increase in demand for bodyboarding tuition recently that we’ve actually just added a new weeklong women’s bodyboard retreat in July 2024. The Newquay bodyboard retreats are ideal for enjoying all the extras that Cornwall has to offer, such as surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, coasteering, wild swimming, coffee shop culture, and local heritage. 

Venturing beyond the Cornish borders, we also offer retreats to Croyde, the jewel of the North Devon coastline. There is nothing like the pumping bodyboarding waves of Croyde to get your heart racing, it’s an incredible surf destination, and a legendary booger hotspot.

Wales Bodyboard HolidaysOur near neighbour, and favourite road trip spot is The Gower and gives you the chance to go bodyboarding in Wales. Just a few hours in the car, over the bridge and suddenly we’re in another world at Llangennith Beach. This stunning crescent of sand is backed by beautiful scenery, idyllic campsites and perfect beach barbecue spots. The waves speak for themselves at this epic beach break, and there are fun waves for all abilities to be found.

Costa Rica Bodyboard

Our Costa Rica bodyboard retreats are led 

by inspirational pros Jay & Vicky Reale. Soak up the blissful vibes of Santa Teresa, ride the perfect waves, explore the jungle, swim beneath waterfalls, get up close with wildlife and swing in hammocks. It’s all about the simple pleasures of Pura Vida.

Familiar faces Jay and Vicky Reale also lead our El Salvador bodyboard retreats. Here, you’ll find a community of boogers who’ve been lured in by the perfection of the offshore conditions, wedgy beach breaks and long point breaks. P.S. If you have the time and fancy making the most of your travel to Central America, you can enjoy Costa Rica and El Salvador back to back… just saying!

Heart shaped Tavarua in Fiji is a true ocean and beach lover’s paradise, and has captivated us for more than 20 years. This 29 acre island resort is the world’s most exclusive surf location and has two of the worlds best waves breaking just off it. With its friendly environment, bath-warm water, and pristine waves of all sizes for all ability levels, it’s no wonder these bodyboard retreats are world-class.

Bali BodyboardingOur bodyboarding retreat in Bali is centred around Echo Beach. Yes it’s not just the title of a catchy song, this Echo Beach is one of the worlds best bodyboarding beach breaks, and it will be yours to conquer. We’ll also go off the beaten track and take you to some of our favourite secret spots.

Our Nusa Lembongan bodyboard retreat with Iain Campbell is a unique opportunity.  Nusa Lembongan is just a short ferry ride from Bali, but upon reaching it you’ll discover an island of yesteryear; Nusa has the rustic charm and empty beaches of Bali 30 years ago. With amazing waves visible from the infinity pool at the hotel, we’ll take a private boat out into the bay each day and get dropped off right in the lineup. It’s chauffeur service at its finest in Nusa Lembongan. 

A fact we’ll bet our fins on, is that Sumatra offers the best bodyboarding waves in the world. It’s an Indonesian outpost, untainted by commercialism, and we’re often the only surfers there. These empty waves and unspoilt vistas help create the bodyboard retreats you’ve been dreaming of.Sumatra Bodyboarding
