Newquay's No.1 Surf Academy

Surf Lessons

On the day:

We will meet at the surf location before getting you all suited up and ready to go. Once on the beach the most important thing to us is your safety so we begin with a compulsory safety brief..
We then concentrate on the techniques involved with catching waves and standing up on your board.  We appreciate that you are probably itching to get in the water so we don't spend to much time on the beach however it is important to learn the basics on the stable platform that the beach offers before heading into the surf to give it a go!

In the first few sessions you wont be any deeper than chest deep water, there is plenty to learn and once you've mastered the basics we can take
you a bit deeper.

Don't forget to smile throughout your session as you may well be photographed so that you can impress your mates with some evidence of you standing up for the first time! It is an amazing feeling so come and give it a go for yourself.
