Being closer to the waves, Newquay bodyboarding offers you a great sensation of speed and exhilaration - the goals come much more quickly than with stand up surfing. Bodyboarding is 100% fun for all ages and abilities; within an hour you can be "out back" catching the unbroken swells with the experienced surfers, learning moves like barrel rolls, cut backs and tube rides.
Whilst it's easy to learn the basics with bodyboarding, the top end moves can take a life time to master. The sport offers something for even the least likely of wave riders.
Each lesson includes:
- get changed in heated changing rooms
- safe storage of your valuables
- top quality equipment (wetsuit, bodyboard and swim fins)
- warm up then instruction suited to your ability
- catching waves, trimming, cutbacks and other manoeuvre coaching
- a minimum of two hours beach and water instruction
- insurance- a bottle of bubbly upon completion of the session
Pay just £10 extra per person and we'll provide rental of the equipment for the full day, so you can practice after your lesson.
Upgrade to a full day with 2 x 2 hour bodyboard lessons, all equipment and tuition, bottle of bubbly for the hen for £45.
We can accommodate silly costumes for hens if you want to bring one (contact us for advice).
Open to complete novices - entry level to this sport is not as physically demanding as surfing and guarantees all will catch waves.
Groups under 10 people will be charged at £30 per person.
