Our surf lessons Cornwall camps are part of our unique surf & adventure weekends. Join us as an individual, couple or group of friends as we Surf, Coasteer and Wild Camp over a weekend in our private set of Cornish woodlands.

Is it really a surf camp in a woodland?

Yes, believe it or not, our surf camp is a purpose-built wild campsite nestled in our very own Cornish woodland.

Set on the grounds of a live working dairy farm we’ve carved out a fully working wild camp complete with a marquee, kitchen & bar, games area for woodland activities and of course fabulous pitches for our super comfortable Bell tents.

What ARE surf campS CORNWALL & adventure weekends?

Our popular surf camps Cornwall & adventure weekends include surfing lessons on Newquay’s famous surf beaches, an adventure filled Coasteering session & a night’s wild camping where you can learn basic bushcraft firefighting skills and play fun woodland games before bbq’ing some food and relaxing around the fire with your favourite drink.

The action-packed weekend starts on Saturday morning with activities spread across the whole day. Typically we finish our last surf lessons in Newquay around lunch time on Sunday.


Arriving for the weekend at our base in Newquay you’ll be met by your instructors and other members joining the camp.

Before jumping into wetsuits you’ll get an overview of how the weekend will run so you know where to be and at what time. Typically, we start our weekends off with the first of our two surfing lessons Cornwall. Whether it’s your first time surfing or you have previous experience our knowledgeable surf coaches are able to tailor the session to suit all levels of ability.

We use the independent ability measure iAM Bands to help our surf coaches and surfers understand what to work on. 

Throughout the weekend each of our water activities is two hours long giving you plenty of time in the sea and time in between sessions to enjoy Newquay’s laid-back lifestyle.

By early afternoon you’ll be back in your wetsuit ready for the Coasteering session where you’ll discover the Newquay coastline like never before.

You’ll be taught all the skills you need and you won’t have to do anything you don’t want. There’s no experience necessary just kick back and enjoy being guided around by our experienced Coasteering guides.

After a day of ocean activities, there is nothing better than the contrasting world of a Cornish woodland and our unique surf camp. After settling into your tents it’s on with some fun woodland games such axe throwing, balance beams or even friction fire lighting.
