Hit the Cornish coast for some expert-led surf lessons tailored for beginners and avid surfers alike

Relax, unwind and recharge with some restorative, outdoor yoga at an awesome woodland retreat

Sleep beneath the stars in canvas bell tents surrounded by a peaceful, natural setting

Key Information

Day 1

Wild Woodland Camping

Surf, Coasteer and Wild Camp in Cornwall

Meet at your host's Headquarters in Newquay and transfer to your wild camp. Head into the woods and settle into your luxurious bell tent for an evening around the campfire.

Day 2

Fistral Beach

Surf, Coasteer and Wild Camp in Cornwall

Surfing

1.5hrs

Yoga

1hr

Fuel up on a hearty camp breakfast and head to Fistral beach, home of some of the best waves in Cornwall, and your first surf lesson. Lessons will be tailored to both the group and you as an individual and 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 water. Learn how to manage your board, paddle and that all-important wave timing and return to your woodland wild camp where your yoga instructor will be waiting in an open-sided barn.

In this peaceful setting, you'll be guided through stretches and poses that relax and recharge your muscles and 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) followed by some axe throwing and games before getting cosy in your bell tent.

Day 3

Put your skills into practice

Surf and Yoga in Cornwall

Yoga

1hr

Surfing

1.5hr

Start the day with another delicious breakfast, followed by a morning yoga lesson to the sound of birdsong. This morning’s session will focus on awakening your body and recharging your muscles ready for more surfing. Energised and focused, head back to the beach and build upon yesterday’s session as you develop your skills to the next level. Whether you’re practising turning, or paddling out back for some bigger waves, today is all about progression whatever your level. You’ll be handed your towel at around 13:00 as a great weekend adventure in the woods and on the water comes to an end.

What is the food like?

Surf and Yoga in Cornwall

Newquay has a range of restaurants for any budget, as well as a supermarket across the street from the surf shop. You'll need to buy ingredients for dinner at the camp - simple is best as you will be BBQ’ing and cooking over the camp fire. Given the diversity of food available in town, all dietary requirements can be accommodated including vegetarian and vegan diets. You will be provided with a basic camp breakfast that should be enough to keep you going but please bring some extra snacks if you're an extra hungry morning person.

What is the accommodation like?

Surf, Yoga and Wild Camp in Cornwall
Newquay

You’ll wildcamp on untouched private land 11 miles outside Newquay. Home for the weekend is a spacious canvas bell tent, arranged in a tranquil woodland setting with festive banners and twinkle lights. Each bell tent sleeps 4 people and comes with simple carpet and airbeds. You'll need to bring your own sleeping bag & pillow (or you can rent a sleeping bag from your host if you prefer to travel light - see Optional Extras). There are composting toilets, washing-up facilities and rustic gas showers, all outdoors in the peaceful countryside.

Upgrades

Friends or couples wishing to stay in their own two-man bell tent equipped with an air bed can request this after booking (unfortunately solo occupancy is not available in the bell tents). See Optional Extras for prices.

Loved this trip away to Cornwall. The Campsite was gorgeous and very eco-friendly. It was a nice change of pace of life and loved sitting around the campfire chatting. Victor and Willow were fantastic guides and Victor was an excellent surf instructor. I loved Amiee's yoga classes - these were exactly what you needed to stretch out after surfing.

A super fun weekend surfing (or trying to!) and the perfect way to use an extra bank holiday. As it was my first time surfing I didn't realise how tiring it would be and I think a top tip is to book a hotel Sunday night with a spa to let your body recover!

I had a great time and would recommend the trip. But I'm not sure it's value for money. I would also recommend hiking boots for the camp! If the weather is wet and you just have runners then your feet will get wet!

Chloe(August 2022)

10/10 do recommend! Everyone on the team is great. Surfing is great. Yoga is great. And the campsite is super cute. What more do you want?

Jos(August 2022)

I had great fun here- the instructors were very helpful about my disability- turns out it's hard to start surfing if you can't see the waves coming... (and no you can't really wear glasses while surfing either...) And the yoga and campsite was gorgeous- being able to see the stars at night was fabulous, absolutely no light pollution at all!

Alexandra(August 2022)

Highly recommend to anyone.

Michelle(September 2021)

Nourishing, wonderful, enjoyable weekend. Felt really well looked after and the campsite really was magical. So so special. And the surfing instructors were fab

Carly(September 2021)

Camp site and Amy the yoga instructor were great! Overall recommend the trip. Recommend bringing a car so you can transport yourself to/from campsite so you don’t have to rely on others from the trip. Surfing was a bit crowded and hard to practice and 1 instructor for 5/6 people. Overall great trip and bring bug spray and as not on kit list!
