Newquay Body Boarding Stag Party Activity
Newquay Bodyboarding with Pop the Fizz
Duration: 2.5 hours (including enrolment)
Location: Fistral Beach, Newquay
What is Bodyboarding?
Bodyboarding is a super fun and highly addictive sport where you are guaranteed to be catching your first wave within 10 minutes of being in the water. At Newquay Activity Centre we coach all levels from complete beginners to top level competitor’s and everyone inbetween.
You’ll get changed into a wetsuit with an identity vest over the top, you will also be given your bodyboard and fins at this stage. We are located on the doorstep of Fistral Beach so you will be on the sand in no time!
The lesson begins with a quick lesson on the sand covering beach safety and ocean awareness, you will then progress onto prone Bodybaording, this involves catching the waist depth white water waves straight to shore. This is relatively easy and we can guarantee everyone will master this within your first couple of waves. Once your group are happy with this your coaches will take you through trimming and turning left and right again giving you the opportunity to practice. The final part of the lesson will involve heading back to the sand and donning your fins, you will be taught how to use the fins effectively and how to get outback to the deeper water and unbroken waves by duckdiving. You will then progress onto catching the green waves giving you longer rides and a bigger thrill!
Our coaching team offer tuition tailored to your ability with coaches of Surfing GB qualified calibre who are fully insured, including former European Number 1 and British Team Body boarding Coach Rob Barber.
