The Surf camp

OurSurf camp UK options offer an excellent surf experience, based in the surf towns of Newquay and Woolacombe, in the county of Cornwall, on the south end of England.

The surroundings feature a stunning countryside as well as a great nightlife - all in the surfing metropolis of the British Islands. The consistent swell is great for beginners, but also has a lot to offer for the more advanced surfer.

Cornwall is known for producing great swells all year around. The camps works on 6 different beaches; all good during different types of weather, to make sure that you won't miss out on any surf.

After a hard days surfing, the lively town of Newquay has a large number of activities to offer. Most famous for its bars and partying, experiencing the nightlife in downtown Newquay is a must. There are also good opportunities to discuss the surf over a cup of coffee in some cozy cafe, or go to the nearby zoo. You can also enjoy plenty of scenic walks, boat trips and fishing.

The weather in the area is temperate and generally pleasant from April through October, with July and August being the hottest months, especially at night. The swells are larger during the winter, and the water temperature stays fairly constant throughout the year, thanks to the nearby Gulf stream.

Surf school

The surf school is rated a level 3 surf school by the British Surfing Association, which is one of the highest in the country. The classes are usually held at either Newquay Bay, Fistral Beach or Watergate Bay, depending on daily surfing conditions. The school has a big quiver of boards that has something for every surfer, available for use at any time.

The following is included in the surf school package:

  • Surf school 5 days per week, 6 hours per day
  • All surfing equipment needed

After one week of surf school, most beginners are out there with the instructors catching waves, and the intermediate surfer has improved greatly.

Surfari

Surfaris are guided surf trips for advanced surfers. Surf Camp UK does not offer any surfaris. However, the surf school alternative is designed for more experienced surfers as well.
