With our Newquay surf lessons we'll give you our top tips on etiquette, our coaches are on hand to help guide and give understanding to the world of surf etiquette, but here’s our quick surf etiquette checklist.
 
→ SURF BETWEEN THE BLACK & WHITE FLAGS: Surf schools and people learning to surf will need to use the area between the black & white flags.
→ HOLD ON TO YOUR BOARD: Always keep hold of your surfboard, even if you wipe out. Letting your board go can be dangerous to other water users.
→ GIVE PEOPLE SPACE:The learn to surf zone can get busy. Try to give people some space and be mindful of other surfers, whether they are on a surf lesson or not.
→ APOLOGISE TO OTHERS: We're all learning! If you make a mistake, like accidentally getting in the way of someone, apologise. It’s the best way to maintain harmony in the water.
→ HAVE FUN & STAY SAFE: Remember that everyone is out to enjoy themselves. Keep it light, have fun, and prioritise safety above all else.

SURFING LESSON FAQ'S


CAN I BRING MY OWN WETSUIT?
Yes, you’re welcome to bring your own wetsuit. We provide great C-Skins wetsuits which are included in your lesson price. We use different wetsuit thicknesses depending on the time of year.

Can I bring my own surfboard?

Yes sure - If its a surfboard you’re comfortable using please bring it along. Alternatively, we have a massive range of differing shapes and sizes, again included in the lesson price.

Whats The Minimum Age To Surf?

For our Group Taster Surf lessons the minimum age is 8 years old. We offer private family lessons for families with younger children.

Can I Wear My Glasses In The Surf?

We’d suggest using daily contact lenses in the surf. Glasses tend to steam up and fall off eventually. If you really need to wear your glasses, you are welcome to.

Do I have to be able to swim to surf?

Yes, we do ask that you can swim a minimum of 25 metres. You don't need to be a strong swimmer, and you won’t be swimming during your session. You will be surfing from waist depth back to the shore.

Is 35 too old to learn how to surf?

Nooo, you’re never too old to start surfing. If anything surfing keeps you young! Come and join us.

Is Newquay Cornwall good for surfing?

Newquay is a great place for beginners and intermediate surfers. Big wide sandy beaches, options for gentle or not-so-gentle waves and of course the countless bays and coves make Newquays surfing beaches a great choice.

How many lessons do you need for surfing?

Typically, one or two introductory surf lessons are enough to give you the basics of surf safety and give you the basic techniques and understanding of how to catch a wave, pop up and ride back to the shore. Of course, there's plenty more to learn!

Can you learn to surf without lessons?

Surfing is one of the most physical and technical sports to learn. It’s also one of the most enjoyable. Learning simple techniques can help jump your learning ahead and surf in safety.
