Westcountry Surf School

Personal and professional, Westcountry Surf School is run by brother and sister duo Joel and Naomi Bishop. Born and bought up on the Cornish waves, they became qualified RNLI Lifeguards and have travelled the world in search of surf.

Operating from popular Watergate Bay, tuition is offered in small groups with a maximum ratio of 1 coach to 6 students per lesson, with beach safety and fun being at the heart of each lesson. GoPro cameras will also capture your progress.

Why Watergate Bay?

Newquay has made a name for itself as the surf capital of the UK with Watergate Bay known for its SE wind direction and beach breaks to the left and right which produce consistently good waves, picking up the swells from the Atlantic. The long stretch of sandy beach is then protected by high cliffs. Instructors will know the bay well and be able to select the best areas according to ability taking into account information on the weather, currents and rip tides which may affect surfing that day.
