What Can I Expect

Go bodyboarding Newquay style! These lessons will get you out on the water, catching waves within no time. Suitable for anyone from absolute beginners, to those with some bodyboarding experience, you will have an absolute blast on Cornwall's stunning beaches.

This dynamic outdoor activity centre based in Newquay is headed by Rob Barber. Rob travelled the world riding the best waves as Europe's number one professional bodyboarder. Having lived that endless summer lifestyle, Rob came back home to Cornwall and founded the school in 1999.

Since then, the team has taught thousands of hours of lessons on the waters of the Cornish coastline, encouraging many hundreds of us to get into all sorts of water sports. As a former champ, Rob's heart is still very much with bodyboarding and he loves it when he sees how newbies progress.

So what is bodyboarding all about? To bodyboard you lie down on your belly on the board. You need to know how to paddle out, how to trim correctly, how to select the right wave to ride and what to do when you catch one! You'll learn all of this during your Newquay bodyboarding taster session.

And we have to say, because your centre of gravity is low (as you're lying down), catching even the smallest broken white wave will carry you to the shore and actually feel really fast! Riding your first wave will leave you deliriously happy and wanting more - and the enthusiastic coaches will be there to help you progress.

With Rob's expert teaching methods that are passed on to his instructing team, they reckon you'll be riding your first broken wave within 10 minutes or so of being on the water. After that, it's all about aiming to ride those green (unbroken) waves for even more thrills!

Buy your lesson vouchers to go bodyboarding at Newquay's local beaches now and get ready to ride those waves like a pro!
