We go the extra mile for guests of all ages so you'll head home, buzzing with the salty air of adventure, brimming with great memories. Minimum age is 7 unless accompanied at all times by an adult.

Private group lessons are are perfect way to enjoy time in the waves together. For the ultimate surf adventure, take a look at The Esplanade Hotel's family surf holidays - they're great value or our family surf lessons and coasteers.

Our group discounts mean that surfing is a great value activity for your hen or stag party in Newquay. Our experienced instructors will put you through your paces and our resident photographer can be at hand to record the aftermath (booking is a must). And don't worry, you won't be roughing it - we've got hot showers, great kit and lockers for safe and secure storage. If you fancy a post-surf-wind-down, we can organise a cocktail masterclass, afternoon tea or spa treatments at the nearby Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa.
