“Body Boarding Stag”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

What a weekend .
I"m an inexperienced body boarder so the thought of the water in early March somewhat struck fear into me.
NO need Quality kit to keep us toasty. Rob was really good at catering for both the lads with experience and those without. Broke everything down to simple movements and technique. By the end of the weekend I was digging the rail in and catching a couple of good waves.
Loads of other activities on offer which i"ll definitely give a go on my next trip to the coast. Really friendly staff who genuinely want to see you enjoying the water.
Would highly recommend any of the activities on offer at anytime of year.
Those with a sore head, sea air and fresh water is the best cure out there.
Cheers Rob

Thanks Dom, we're glad that you enjoyed your weekend and scored some fantastic winter waves. It was a pleasure to have you and the group down, you all took to the water like naturals and made light work of the over head waves. Hope to see you and the boys for some summer swells.

“The best activity centre in Newquay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

So glad we picked Newquay Activity Centre, these guys are by far the best, the team is amazing and totally professional.
The choice of activities is huge, and our group was spoiled for choice, it's well worth the money to have experts take you out and show you the coastline of Newquay.
I was a bit nervous doing Coasteering and Surfing but they guys are great at getting the best out of you and making the lessons really enjoyable and fun.
I felt particularly confident as they team really advise you on safety and you get all the equipment you need to make your activity both safe and super fun.
I would strongly recommend the activity centre, they stand out a mile in terms of customer service, range of activities, professionalism and they're also a really nice bunch of people running it, so 10/10 from me and I will be back for more!

“Greaf Surf Lessons in Winterand Sur Hire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

This was my first try with Surfing....first day I took a 2.5 Hrs Lesson which was very helpful and fun, on the second day I hired Surf Equipment to practice on my own...The Staff is very friendly and helpful...and prices are ok....Rob was very nice to flexibly make me a hire offer. It is near Fistral Beach, a very popular surf spot...so no need to go through the pain to transport the boards from a further shop.

“Surfing and coasteering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is by far the best surf and coasteering school in the UK. The guys there really look after you and are great fun. I had never surfed before and by the end of my lesson I was standing up surfing. I also done coasteering with them which I have done in other parts of the UK and its probably the best activity I have ever done I also love wildlife and when swimming 5ft away from a grey seal that made my day. The guys are very safety minded with full professional instruction but still make it a fun filled day with plenty of adrenaline. Thanks Rob and Carl.
