FAQ’s

Who can learn to bodyboard?

Literally anybody, as long as you can swim. However, if you’re younger than eight you need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Apart from that there’s no age limit, if you fancy a try give it a go! Lessons are pitched at a level suited to your ability whether you’re a complete novice that’s never been in the sea before or a professional standard rider. Our instructors are all trained lifeguards and qualified coaches with many years of experience.

Where are your bodyboarding lessons held?

My bodyboard school is based in Newquay, Cornwall, on Headland Road at the Newquay Activity Centre. We use Fistral or the Newquay bay beaches depending on the conditions on any given day.
