Family Surfing Lessons Itinerary

What to expect from our family surf lessons…

Our private family surf lessons are exclusive to you and your family. When you arrive you’ll receive a warm welcome from your friendly surf coach.

After a quick overview of the lesson, we’ll give you some tips on how to wriggle into your wetsuit before heading to the best suited beach of the day.

Our lessons are broken down into bite size chunks so everyone quickly understands what to do and how to get the best out of the session.

We start with a fun beach lifeguard warm up,  surf & beach safety and how to catch waves on your stomach. Once everyone has had a good practice on the sand we head out to the surf.

Back to the beach, and it’s time to run through some techniques on how to stand up and control your board. We’ve got some great techniques for both big kids and little kids so you’ll be sure to be riding some cornish waves back to the shore before long.

Some frequently asked questions...


Yes, we cater to families of any size. The more the merrier. Any additions to the group are £35 per person


We are based in the heart of Newquay. Town beach is a short 2-3 minute walk, Fistral beach is 5 minute walk. Depending on the sea conditions on the day will dictate which beach we use. Your instructor will decide this on the day and you will head to the beach with your boards once you have been kitted out with wetsuits. Get ready to learn!


Yes, all participants under 18 will need to have a participation form completed on their behalf prior to the activity.

You can do this online here or on arrival at our base.

Once a form is completed and you’ve meet your surf coach, parents are welcome to watch from the beach, grab a coffee or meet your coach back at our base at the end of the lesson.


Our private family surf lessons welcome any age. These sessions are exclusive to your group giving you the freedom to go at your own pace. We stay with you at all times and keep a close eye on any younger members / weaker swimmers.


You’ll need to arrive at our surf school based in the heart of Newquay. 4 Alma Place, Newquay, TR7 1NF

From there you’ll be welcomed by your surf coach, change into wetsuits and head to the beach.

We booked a 2 hour surf lesson which turned out to be probably the best part of our trip! It was me and my two boys (aged 11 & 13) and our instructor was Adrian. The lesson was fast paced but with emphasis on safety and mastering some basic body positions before heading out into the surf. Adrian got us able to catch a wave and ride it to the shore lying down before trying to stand up and all three of us achieved this by the end.  I would happily recommend Cornish Wave to anyone!

Best time ever!Saint I (Trip Advisor)
