4 Night Surf Camp in Newquay, Cornwall

Join us for our exclusive 4-night surf camp in Newquay, Cornwall. Stay at our private surf camp, where you'll enjoy expert lessons, video feedback, and theory sessions. Hosted from start to finish, this is the ultimate surf camp in the UK.


Day 1: Arrival day at 4:00 PM

Arriving at our surf school in the heart of Newquay, it's time to check in and get the surf trip started. Here, you'll be greeted by your friendly host, who'll make sure everyone has all they need and that we're ready for a great few days of surfing.

After the warm welcome, we'll make the short drive (15 mins) to our surf camp, your home for the next few days. If you've arrived by public transport, we'll make sure you hitch a ride in the Landrover to the camp.

The first evening is pizza night. Using our outdoor pizza ovens, it's a social affair of cooking pizzas and settling into camp life.

Day 2: Surfing introduction and ability measure

After breakfast at the camp, we head back to the surf school for the first of the surfing lessons. We start with an introduction to surfing and an overview of individual surf goals with help from the surfing ability measure from iAM bands.

Post-surf, it is time for lunch at one of the many options that surround the surf school. Dine in or grab a pasty and hang out at the shop (surf school); it's your call.

After lunch, the second surf is more of a relaxed and less structured session. Building on the morning success and coaching pointers while having fun and enjoying being in the surf.

Day 3: Eat, sleep, surf, repeat

Day 3's surf lesson is a recap of good general surf principles and the setting of individual surfing goals. This session is then filmed, and we'll take a look at the results and talk through your waves later in the afternoon.

For the 3rd night evening meal, you're free to explore Newquay and soak up a sunset on the beach (fingers crossed).

Day 4: Don't panic and carry on surfing

Day 4 starts with a theory session at the camp. We'll help to dispel any myths and help answer those burning surf questions. Or, we'll simply explain the rules of etiquette, board design, or anything else which might be helpful.

After class, it's time for lunch in Newquay and back in the water for another surf session.

Tonight is the Last Supper. Our final night's meal is together in Newquay at a pre-booked restaurant. It's a great time to share stories of the last few days and make plans for the next surf trip!

Day 5: Final surf lesson and farewells

After our final surf session of the week, it's time to say our fond farewells and make the journey home. It's an epic week of surfing, making new surf buddies, and hanging out in the surf capital of the UK.
