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.

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.

Progression Log

If you are totally new to bodyboarding it is great to have a structured approach to see you improve quickly and really get the most out of the sport and the ocean.
We have developed a progression log so that after each bodyboarding lesson we can focus on what you have achieved and where you will take your riding form here.

  • By logging your progress you will reach your goals more quickly and maximise your performance.
  • The Progression Log certifies the stage that you have achieved with your bodyboarding from one session to another and can be used as a reference point for your instructor to keep you on track with your improvements.

Most of our lesson include photography.  Our expert instructors are never far away from you during your session. Using cameras in waterproof housings they take shots of you during your lessons.

  • Not only do these shots provide an awesome memory of you bodyboarding, they also work as a really useful tool for you to refer to after the lesson and analyse your style and technique.
  • Many of the riders that have had lessons with us have had shots printed to take pride of place on their bedroom wall or they’ve used a favourite for their Facebook profile picture.
  • Your images are will be available for download by you  after your session.
