What kind of wetsuit do I need?
We recommend a 5mm or full (long sleeve, long arms) winter wetsuit from October until the end of May. A 3mm wetsuit is usually warm enough from May to September. All club members receive a 20% discount on wetsuits for sale in the Quiksilver Surf School Newquay.

Club sessions usually meet at 6pm and finish at 8pm in the summer and 2pm-4pm in the winter.
What time of year does club run?
How many members are in each group?
There is a maximum 8 members to 1 instructor and maximum 24 surfers at each club surf.
How many instructors will be at each session?
This depends on the total number booked on each session (see above safe ratio) We will have a minimum 2 instructors at each surf, but we often have more.
I have never surfed before, will I be ok to join club?
Yes, no experience is necessary to join. Our instructors are experienced in teaching all ages and abilities.
Will I be in water out of my depth?
Possibly. If a member has demonstrated they have the ability to confidently paddle their board ‘out back’ the instructors will allow them to paddle out of their depth. This will be at the instructors professional discretion and not the decision of the member.
What will I learn at club?
Surfing! We are a surf club and will teach surfing at all levels from complete beginner to advanced ‘out back’. Surfing is not just learning to stand up on a surfboard - this is just the beginning. All sessions will include a safety brief and surf theory for conditions of the day.
