The guys at the school were amazing, they were knowledgable and spent time with me and my daughter along with the group lesson. I would definitely recommend this school, my daughter and I can’t wait to come back. My daughter now wants to come to the Roxy academy now as well. Thank you guys, you are amazing.

Excellent coasteering! We came to Newquay for my stag weekend and decided coaststeering would be fun. Both Burt and Clem were really good guides, went through all the safety aspects and gave us encouragement when needed for the bigger jumps! 100% would do it again.
