What adventure activities to expect…

A quick run down of how the weekend unfolds.

Your weekend consists of two surf lessons, a coasteering session and an overnight camp at our private wild campsite.

Saturday is the big day with two water activities & wild camping. Each of the water activities are two hours long and includes all the kit, you’ll need a few personal items for each activity and the weekend, so make sure you see our packing list before you arrive.

Saturday morning…

We kick the weekends off early at 9am with a warm welcome from your hosts / guides, introductions and an overview of how the weekend will run.

Your hosts are with you all weekend so if you have any questions about the weekend make sure you check in with them for any assistance, whether it’s logistics or something more technical about your activities they are sure to be able to help you out.

The weekends weather, tide and surf conditions will decide which activities we schedule for the morning or afternoon, so come prepared for either surfing or coasteering. The below description should give you a good idea of how a typical itinerary plays out.

Once we’ve all meet each other, it’s time to grab a wetsuit and surfboard for the first of the weekend’s surf lessons. Whether you are experienced or it’s your first time, our surf coaches are on hand to offer advice and guide you throughout your surfing lesson.

95% of people who join us are brand new to surfing, so don’t worry if you think you’ll be the only person who hasn’t tried surfing – – you’ll be in good company!

WHAT WILL I LEARN ON A SURF LESSON?

We break the surf lesson down into stages – each stage has a short beach session where the surf coach can easily describe and demonstrate the technique, as well as giving you the chance to practise & perfect your method before hitting the waves.

In the initial stage you’ll learn beach safety & how to manage your board, before practising your prone surfing and catching waves on your stomach from waist depth, back to the sand.

Its then into the sea to practise what you were taught in the first section – your surf coach is on hand in the water with you giving feedback and helping you into waves.

Once everyone has had a chance to hone their skills in the water it’s back on the sand for the next stage of the surf lesson – How to stand up!

As with anything there is a method to the madness and proven techniques to help you get riding waves back to the shore looking the part!

Lunch 

You’ll have plenty of time between activities to grab some lunch, take a stroll around Newquay’s many surf shops or head back to our base and hang out in the garden.

Newquay has a great vibe during the summer with plenty to look at, just ask us for some recommendations on where to go and what to see.

Saturday afternoon…

After lunch it’s time for the afternoon’s activity, coasteering. Once your group is kitted out you’ll take a short walk over to our coasteering location, commonly known as the ‘Gazzle’.
Don’t worry if you aren’t confident in the sea or have never tried coasteering before, your knowledgable guide will explain and demonstrate all the skills you need to have a fantastic time Coasteering.

What is Coasteering?

Coasteering is a fantastic and dynamic activity which can comprise of several elements such as wild swimming, low-level traversing, and everyone’s favourite, deep water cliff jumps.

Not to mention scrambling up gullies, swimming through sluices, getting washed around in whirlpools, exploring large caves or learning about the local fauna & flora.

Coasteering is an activity governed by the tide, sea state on the day and of course group ability. We set our session times to reflect the best tide conditions of the day. Guaranteeing we’re able to provide the best coasteer possible.
