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…

Saturday morning…

We kick the weekends off early with a warm welcome from your hosts / guides, introductions and an overview of how the weekend will run. Your hosts / guides are with you all weekend right from the start so if you have any questions about the weekend make sure you check in with them for any assistance, whether its’ about 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. Our description below is based on a surf lesson in the morning, with coasteering in the afternoon.
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’ll be the only person who hasn’t tried surfing – – you’ll be in good company!
Lunch – You’ll have plenty of time to grab some lunch and take a stroll around Newquay’s many surf shops between the activities. 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.

Saturday night…

Once the day’s water activities are finished you’ll have time to grab your belongings for the evening and visit the supermarket across the road from our base before we leave in convoy to our wild campsite.
We recommend some bbq food and one or two of your favourite drinks, we’ll provide the rest. For those without transport, we’ll help you arrange a lift share with other members of the group.
The wild camp is a lovingly crafted space in our own private woodlands set on a working dairy farm in the heart of Cornwall. After a quick introduction to the camp, you’ll want to settle into your shared Bell tent (air bed & pillow provided) before the evening activities begin. With axe throwing, balance games and firefighting skills there’s plenty going on throughout the evening to keep you entertained.
Finish the night off with stories around the campfire, roasting marshmallows or one or two of your favorite drinks before sleeping soundly under the stars.

Sunday…

Sunday morning starts with bacon & egg rolls with tea and coffee (on us) before we wave goodbye to the wild camp and head back to Newquay, jump into a wetsuit and hit the Cornish waves one last time.
By 1pm we are typically all surfed out and ready to say fond farewells and home time.

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!

The aim of our lessons is to pass on enough information for you to feel confident to surf in your own time.

You’ll need your swimming costume, a towel and some shoes for the beach.
