My 14 year-old son and I booked a private lesson. Even though I've surfed before and my son was a total beginner we both had a brilliant time and learnt huge amounts. Our coach was fantastic and can't recommend these guys enough. We will be back.

Picked to do the coasteering for a stag do as it seemed a little different and would get the adrenaline going and it didn’t disappoint! The guys running it were both really friendly and helpful and although it rained the whole time it didn’t make any difference. Would highly recommend

Had a great morning exploring cliffs & caves with Daz & Jay. Really friendly guys, very encouraging and helpful on the way round. Would definitely recommend and will use them again on our next trip to Newquay.

The hosts Daz (surfing, camping) and Jay (coasteering) were fantastic, they made the weekend much more than just a few activities, with their enthusiasm for what they do, clear coaching and friendly approach.

The activities were really hard work, but you could choose to take it easier if you wanted. The wild camp is a great place hidden in the woods and the guys have done a great job of making it comfortable and fun.

Both Daz and Jay had great knowledge of Newquay and its history and sharing this with us added to the whole experience.

To top it all off we had amazing cream teas at Lewinnick Lodge (recommended by Jay) to finish the weekend, a beautiful spot overlooking Fistral Beach.

We went as a family coast steering. Kids 11 and 13. Jay and Adrian took us out. The experience was fantastic. Both made it really enjoyable.

The jumps became more challenging. Both were excellent at getting everyone to do the jumps and were extremely good with the kids. One of which was challenged by the experience

We enjoyed it so much we have booked a surf lesson with them

Felt nervous beforehand but both Daz and Jey reassured us all and made us feel comfortable and confident!
Had fun climbing the rocks, jumping at various heights (you didn’t have to jump if you didn’t want to) and swam through a cave!
Also had lots of interesting facts given to us along the way!
Definitely recommend!

thank goodness we discovered Cornishwave. Booked our grandsons onto the session on 23 August. They have coasteered before and enjoy the thrill of it very much. The instructors Adrian and Lou provided a fun and safety conscious session with excellent equipment. Thank you. Probably the highlight of our week in Newquay.

We decided to do something different for a friend's birthday and surprised him with a night of wild camping. The location is just incredible, the tents are spacious and clean, there's everything you need to have a good time! 10/10

I booked a family lesson for 4 and paid a little extra for a dedicated instructor. Adrian , our instructor, was an absolute star. He was reassuring and gave clear instructions to everyone. Not ever having surfed before, Adrian really helped our family to appreciate the joy and excitement of the waves and made the lesson fun and informative. He was clearly experienced and was clear to make sure that if any of our group went out again without instruction we would all know what to do. Super activity and introduction to wave adventures. Thanks!

The booking process was very easy through their website, Jey then contacted us the next day to confirm and was very professional. All the staff were extremely friendly, Michele (our instructor) was very patient, supportive and highly competent.

We booked in for a 9am group booking on the 26th of July however, when we arrived we found we were their only booking so ended up with a private lesson for the price of a group. They could have very easily cancelled or asked for more money, but they didn't. We also payed the extra £20 and used the equipment for the rest of the day which, was not something many of the surf schools offered.

Defiantly recommend!

I would suggest you do a 9am booking as parking is very easy and the beach isn't as busy compared to later in the day! Also if you think you may use the equipment after the lesson defiantly pay for all day parking. its very easy to lose track of time.
