Frequently Asked Questions

We've split our FAQs into Surfing and Yoga sections below to help you find the answers you're looking for!

FAQ - Surfing

Find the most frequently asked questions on our surf lessons below:

All of our surf lessons take place at Watergate Bay beach - a minute drive from our HQ in Newquay Bay Resort and a 10 minute drive from Newquay town center.

Should circumstances result in the lesson taking place at another location, the team will contact you directly with plenty of notice.

You should aim to be at our surf school 30 minutes before your lesson starts ready to put on a wetsuit. Take into account traffic and parking during weekends, school holidays, and sunny days.

Yes!

We are located on The Green opposite Wax Beach Bar right next to the Council Car Park (look into Just Park Wallet on how to save money on your parking during your holiday).

Failing this there is parking opposite Watergate Bay Hotel and on the southern cliff overlooking the bay.

We’d recommend arriving in your swimming cozzie and slip-on footwear ready to change into a wetsuit.

Sun cream, water, towels, a change of clothes, and change in £1 coins for the showers if needed.

For group lessons, our minimum age is 8 years old unsupervised.

Children younger than 8 can attend a group lesson BUT ONLY IF they are supervised by an adult not involved in the lesson at all times.

They can also be booked onto their own Private Surf Lesson.

Sadly we don’t have the facilities at this time to hold onto anything more than your car keys. All other valuables and belongings should be locked in your car during the lesson.

We LOVE surfing in the rain – is there a better activity out there on a wet day?

Our lessons go ahead unless the beach has been red flagged by the lifeguards on duty or we deem it unsafe. In this rare occurrence, lessons are either rearranged or refunded.

All our surf lessons are 2 hours long EXCEPT our Kids-Only Lesson, which runs for
1.5-hours.

Whilst we do supply all necessary equipment for a lesson you are welcome to bring your own wetsuit if you wish. We may however recommend one of ours depending on the time of year and thickness of your suit.

When it comes to your own board, please talk to the team beforehand.

Most surf schools operate a 8:1 ratio of students to coaches. To us, if we're serious about keeping you safe and providing you with an unrivalled surfing experience then this is too high.

Keeping our classes to a maximum of 6 means more 1-on-1 time with your coach and a better experience for everyone.

FAQ - Yoga

Find the most frequently asked questions on our yoga classes below:

If you prefer to use your own please feel free to bring it, however we do supply mats so you don't have to worry about your nice mats from home getting sandy!

Wear clothing that you can move easily in.

The weather in Cornwall is very changeable, so we recommend bringing layers, a waterproof, and sun cream, to cover all eventualities.

Always double check the weather report before you leave the house!

Absolutely! Our Beach Yoga sessions are designed to be accessible to everyone - we want to bring yoga to as many people as possible.

Our instructors offer modifications and adjustments to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and supported during every class.

If you've lived in Cornwall (or any part of the UK for that matter) then you know rain is never too far away!


In the event of bad weather (such as moderate rain or very high winds), the session will be cancelled. You can then reschedule your session for another time or, should this not be possible, receive a full refund.

You'll be contacted up to one hour before the start of the class to inform you of this change, so please make sure your contact information is up to date when booking.

We're working hard at finding a back-up indoor location and will keep you updated!

Yes, children are welcome to join our Beach Yoga sessions accompanied by an adult.

We do recommend that participants are 8 years and over.

Our core instructors are trained to teach yoga for children, so expect some fun.

Our regular classes can simply be booked via our website.

Alternatively you can call, email or WhatsApp to check availability and reserve your spot. We recommend booking in advance to secure your place, as spaces may be limited.

Private Lessons will need to be booked in this manner.

Yes.

Between April and September, they are open 9am - 9pm.

From October to March they are open 10am - 4pm. 

We love dogs but we know not everybody does.

Porth doesn't allow our furry friends on the beach at certain times of the year but we can't guarantee there won't be the odd pooch around.

We also ask you not to bring your dogs to the yoga session.

There is pay-and-display parking available but subject to availability.

To avoid disappointment we recommend walking, cycling, or even car-sharing to get to us.
