The Quiksilver Surf School Newquay is based less than 50m from the famous Fistral Beach, Newquay in Cornwall. We are open all year round so if you want to learn to surf or improve your surfing, try coasteering, body boarding or stand up paddleboarding or just hire some equipment come and visit us. We provide activities for individuals, families, couples, small or large groups.
Top quality surf and stay packages are available with our associated accommodation The Esplanade Hotel and Fistral Beach Hotel. We also provide all female Roxy surf days over the year including a mixture of surf, SUP, yoga and spa treatments. Our onsite beachside facilities are the best in Newquay, with hot showers, secure lockers, board storage and separate male and female changing rooms available to use when you book onto activities with us. Free parking is available right outside the surf school.
Equipment hire and surf shop
We have one of the largest ranges of surf equipment for hire in Newquay that includes all type and size of soft and hard surfboard, bodyboards, stand up paddleboards, swim fins, wetsuits and wetsuit accessories. Whether you want to just borrow equipment for a few hours or a few days equipment hire includes use of our on-site changing facilities, hot showers and lockers. We also have an onsite surf shop selling the latest Roxy and Quiksilver clothes, wetsuits, surfboards, bodyboards and surf accessories.
All of our instructors are fully qualified lifeguards, Surf GB, International Surfing Association and Surf Academy qualified with years of experience teaching, surfing and some competing at a high level on the UK and European surfing scene. We teach all levels and ages from complete beginner to advanced out back lessons catching green waves, learning turns and manoeuvres. Our maximum instructor student ratio is 1:8 on group lessons, but we do provide 1:1 and small group tuition for families or individuals who either want to work on certain skills or prefer tuition in smaller groups.
Group lessons go out at pre planned times everyday while private lessons can be arranged at a time to suit you and your needs. Surf photography and filming is also available upon request.
Coasteering is the alternative adventure along the Cornish coastal path. One minute you can be traversing across barnacle covered ledges, and the next you find yourself jumping into the sea and swimming through caves. The adrenaline filled adventure will take you from secluded beaches to smugglers’ coves and secret caves inhabited by the local seals, dolphins and other marine life. A mix of climbing, traversing, sea swimming and caving, coasteering is an excellent activity for those seeking something different from a beach holiday. Fistral Headland is the ideal location to take groups of all abilities from your first time coasteering to those seeking the more challenging and adrenaline filled adventure.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is great fun and is becoming really popular. Cornwall is one of the best locations to SUP because of its diverse offering of rivers, oceans and lakes. We have a great location for those looking for an introduction to the sport as well as those who are looking to take part in a guided SUP tour, SUP surf lesson or SUP adventure. Stand up paddle boarding is a social sport and great to do with family, friends or even to discover by yourself. Our 2hr Intro SUP sessions are mainly held on calm days at Fistral Beach, on the River Gannel or at Newquay Harbour.
Every year we run women only Roxy weekends, jam packed with surfing, yoga, stand up paddleboarding, spa treatments, buffet lunches and plenty of Roxy goodies! It's always a popular weekend amongst both newcomers to the sport and intermediate surfers looking for some more advanced coaching to hone their skills.
