and coolest - sports in the world, but you get to do it at one if

and a really fun way to spend some quality time together. Surfing
is a lot more than just a sport for many - for those who really
love it, it is an entire way of life!
During your 2 hours family surf lesson, for two adults and two children, your expert and enthusiastic surfing instructors will get you practicing the basic but vital surfing skills you'll need to get up on the board, beginning with some sand-based practice, where you will get used to 'popping up', or jumping to a standing position on the board. After two hours of practice, you may just have managed to ride your first wave!When you have all arrived at the Cornwall surf school and signed in for your lessons, you will be kitted out with your board and wetsuit, before heading to the beach to start the surfing lesson. You will start by getting familiar with the board while you are on dry land. On the sand, you will lie place the boards down and lie on them, with the surfing instructor explaining how to 'pop up' to a standing position, how to paddle out past the breaks, and how to catch a wave.
Then you'll head for the surf to try it for real! You will spend the rest of the lesson trying to just catch a wave and get up on the board, to experience the unrivaled rush of catching that first wave and riding it to the shore!
Luckily for those brave enough to face the winter swells, the surf school is open all year round!

With summer looming, grab your wet suit, your board, your best surfer dude impression and head out to the water. If you need a few tips from the best in the surfing trade, we’ve spoken to Dan at Adventure Bay Surf School in Cornwall (one of the UK’s hottest spots for catching a wave) to find out what sets his experiences apart from the rest. Here’s all you need to know…
Q: How did it all start for Adventure Bay Surf?
A good friend of mine started Adventure Bay surf school 6 years ago. I was working as a surf coach at A-Bay when he made the decision for his family to find more year-round work. It felt like a natural progression to step into his shoes and fulfil a dream of owning my own surf business. Now I just want to offer the best possible experience to people that come down to S.E. Cornwall whether that’s surf lessons, coasteering experiences or just visiting the beach.
Q: What is the best part of the surfing experiences you offer?
For me, the best part of my job is seeing the expression on people’s faces as all the hard work and determination pays off and they get their first proper wave and ride the whole way to the beach. Being surrounded by the tall cliffs of Whitsand Bay means that it is a truly majestic place to learn to surf.
Q: It must be pretty chilly in the winter months! How do you ensure customers can still have a good time when it’s cold out?
Wetsuit technology has improved so much in the last 10 years. We have partnered with Sola wetsuits to offer the best, warmest and most comfortable wetsuits we can. Besides, when you’re concentrating on your next wave the cold doesn’t seem to matter anyway.
Q: What are customers most frequently asked questions?
Probably, “Will I stand up?” or “Where do I park?” Part of the charm of Whitsand Bay is that it is off the beaten track and far from the bustling crowds of Newquay or St. Ives. Whilst we do have a small café and facilities here at the beach it does mean people have to park roadside and find their way down the cliff to the beach.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to add? Or any funny anecdotes you could share with us?
Just that with brand new surfboards and paddle boards from Skunkworks, brand new wetsuits from Sola and an epic crew of coaches Adventure Bay is ready to make sure that everyone; old, young, couples or families has the best possible time in the sea this year whether surfing, coasteering or paddling!
Thanks Dan! Now it’s time to head to the beach, see ya there…
