Surf, Yoga and Wild Camp Weekend in Cornwall
A unique weekend of progressive surf lessons and restorative yoga sessions in the Cornish woodland. 0 days off work.
An awesome woodland retreat packed with energising surf and restorative yoga. You’ll hit the Cornish coast for expert-led group surf lessons tailored for beginners and avid surfers alike. Your R & R time will be spent at the peaceful woodland camp where you’ll unwind and recharge with outdoor yoga sessions and sleep beneath the stars in luxury bell tents.
Day 1: Fistral Beach
You’ll meet your host at their surf shop in Newquay at 11:00. Wetsuits on, you’ll head straight to the beach for today’s surfing lesson. The lessons will be tailored to both the group and you as an individual; whether you’re a first-timer or looking to build on your skills, your coach will make sure you get the best from your time on the waves. You’ll learn how to manage your board, how to paddle and the all-important wave timing
As the surf fatigue sets in, you’ll head up in convoy to the woodland wild camp to unwind. Your yoga instructor will be waiting in an open-sided barn and, in this quaint setting, will guide you through stretches and poses to relax your muscles and recharge your mind; if you’ve never tried yoga before, you’ll be a convert for sure.
Suitably chilled, it’s time for food, drinks and laughs (there’s a handy supermarket across the road from the beach to stock up on your favourites before you head to camp). Get ready for a night of barbequing, axe throwing and games before you get cosy in your bell tent for a much-needed good night’s rest.
Day 2: Put Your Skills to Practice
After breakfast, there’s no better way to start your day than with a yoga session with the morning birdsong as your soundtrack. This morning’s session will focus on awakening your body and recharging your muscles for more surf.
Energised and focused, you’ll head back to the beach to build upon yesterday’s surf session and develop your skills to the next level.
Whether you’re practising how to turn your board or paddling out the back for bigger waves, today is all about progression whatever your level; feel confident in the ocean and recognise how much you’ve learned.
You’ll be handed your towel at around 13:00 as a great weekend adventure comes to an end.
Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, and weather conditions and forecasts.
All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
You’ll wild camp on untouched private land 11 miles outside Newquay. Luxurious bell tents are arranged in a woodland connected by festive banners and twinkle lights.
Each bell tent sleeps 4 people. Air mattresses, clean sheets and pillows are provided; all you have to bring is a sleeping bag.
There’s a composting toilet on site, and fresh water is provided for washing up, but otherwise, you’ll be without facilities in the peaceful countryside.
Your base is in the heart of the UK’s surf capital. You’ll be surfing on Newquay’s famous beaches and soaking up the local surf scene before heading out to the peace and quiet of your host’s private Cornish woodland wild camp.
Newquay (pop. 20,000) is a seaside resort and fishing town in Cornwall. It’s widely regarded as the surfing capital of the UK. With several beautiful sand beaches—each with its own unique surfing conditions—you’ll always have a place to catch waves.
Fistral Beach is a long, wide, sandy beach backed by coastal dunes. There’s tons of space for beginners to learn how to surf at one end while experienced surfers catch big waves at the other end.
Towan Beach is a sheltered beach right in the heart of town with perfect beginner waves and easy access to restaurants and beach bars for lunch.
Your adventure begins at your host address, 4 Alma Place, Newquay, TR7 1NF at 11:00. The easiest way to get there is by car. If you arrive by train it’s only a 15-minute walk (1.2km) from the station to the start point.
Alternatively, you can also travel by plane and ask your host to arrange an airport pick-up. Please ask for accommodation suggestions in Newquay or availability in your host’s camp if you’re planning to arrive a day early.
