What you'll do
Arriving at our central base in Newquay, you'll be welcomed by me. After an introduction and a quick overview of your activity, it's time to jump into wetsuits and start getting kitted up for your experience. Once everyone is ready, we'll make the short walk to either of the Newquay's famous surfing beaches. We break the lesson down into two parts and explain everything you need to know in stages. Remember you don't need any previous experience and you'll have the support and guidance of your surf coach throughout the lesson. From explaining beach safety, how to manage your surfboard to catching waves, the first part of the lesson is designed to make you feel comfortable in the sea. After a quick break and recap on the beach, we'll cover some tips and techniques on how to 'pop up' and ride a wave back to the shore. The majority of our lessons take place form waist height in the surf so you don't need to be a strong swimmer. Just keen to give it go!
Wetsuits and surfboards
Born in South Africa I've always had a passion for outdoors, sharing experiences with friends and the memories of those times. I've lived and worked all over the world delivering a variety of adventure activity experiences. Founding and delivering adventure activity experiences through Cornish Wave is a continuous culmination of these skills, experiences and passions gained over the years. I love nothing more than being active around water whether it be rivers, lakes or the ocean. The variety of ways you can enjoy being in it, on it or simply next to always fills me with excitement.
