Surf camp UK
Surf camp UK is located in the genuine surf town Newquay, on the south end of England. The surroundings feature a stunning countryside as well as a great nightlife - all in the surfing metropolis of the British Islands. The consistent swell is great for beginners, but also has a lot to offer for the more advanced surfer.
Newquay is known for producing great swells all year around. The camp works on 6 different beaches; all good during different types of weather, to make sure that you won’t miss out on any surf. The closest beach is just 300 m from the accommodation. If you’re already an experienced surfer, you can book the surfari and explore the breaks along the Cornish coast.
After a hard day’s surfing, the lively town of Newquay has a large number of activities to offer. Most famous for its bars and partying, experiencing the nightlife in downtown Newquay is a must. There are also good opportunities to discuss the surf over a cup of coffee in some cozy café, or go to the nearby zoo. You can also enjoy plenty of scenic walks, boat trips and fishing.
The weather in the area is temperate and generally pleasant from April through October, with July and August being the hottest months, especially at night. The swells are larger during the winter, and the water temperature stays fairly constant throughout the year, thanks to the nearby Gulf stream.
Learn how to surf
The surf school is rated a level 3 surf school by the British Surfing Association, which is one of the highest in the country. The classes are usually held at either Newquay Bay, Fistral Beach or Watergate Bay, depending on daily surfing conditions. The school has a big quiver of boards that has something for every surfer, available for use at any time.
