At Cornish Wave, our pledge to you is pretty simple. 

We will deliver safe, educational and structured outdoor adventure activity experiences with fun, passionate and experienced instructors.

That’s a promise. So who exactly are we? Why should you trust our word? And why should you book with us for an unforgettable adventure weekend in Newquay?

Who we are:

We’re a surf and adventure provider located in the Cornish coastal town of Newquay. We’ve been running since 2012 and offer a variety of surf lessons, coasteering tours and adventure weekends which can be tailored to everyone and their individual needs. 

Whether you’re in charge of booking your best mate’s stag do, are looking for a fun family adventure, or are a couple wanting to learn to surf as the sun sets, you can do it all with us.

We provide all the equipment you need and our experienced instructors will ensure your lessons and activities are fun, safe, and that you get to see the best of what Cornwall has to offer.

How we started

I’m Jey, founder and instructor at Cornish Wave. I’m from South Africa originally and spent many years travelling the world surfing, kayaking and enjoying nearly any type of outdoor activity. It was in Durban that I first got on a board – admittedly a body one, and it was also there that my love for outdoor adventure really started.

Even though I went to school in the UK, I’d never actually been to Newquay. I’d been to Cayton Bay a few times but that was really as far as my UK surfing experience got. It wasn’t until I left school and was working as a surf instructor on the west coast of Ireland that people told me I had to go to Cornwall. So I did. And here I am all these years later.

It started out as a small company with me, my wetsuits, my boards and a van. I very literally had to test the water to see how it would work and had to learn a lot on the job. I had years of experience instructing in the outdoors, but not that much experience with what running a business meant.

But I learnt! And now we have 12 + lovely people working with us and we’ve expanded to offer more activities and fun adventures!

Our activities

Whatever your experience, we can help. Our instructors can get you from kneeling on your first board all the way up to feeling confident surfing and catching your own waves. We offer a wide variety of surf lessons, all of which are fun, safe and exciting!

Coasteering is a great way to explore the rugged terrain of the cornish coast. We’ll get you climbing, traversing, wild swimming and jumping off cliffs – all of which can be tailored to your personal needs. 

If only one lesson or activity isn’t enough for you, we also offer adventure weekends, where you can camp in the beautiful Cornish countryside, give surfing and coasteering a go and relax with a bit of morning yoga.
