      Great for us oldies!
      With age catching up with me but a young spirit inside, any help I can get is very much appreciated. As a keen cyclist in my younger days, this was my first taste of an ebike and im hooked. The tour was beautiful and made me realise once again why I love South West England so much. Highly recommend this tour for all ages and interests.

      A weekend of beauty, energy, and joy
      And suddenly, there it was. The sun setting to my left, the golden small hill to my right with cute and curious cows walking about and grazing peacefully. The wind rustling the leaves of the trees behind me. There it was, and that was all that was. In this life, I am still unsure about the right questions to ask. But I am sure that that moment, that time of beauty, is at least one of the answers. In a place where others could have just seen a farm, Jey, a man of vision, and his partner Zoe, saw a Surf and Yoga retreat. Where others just saw an empty field, they saw a beautiful pond. And they dug it out themselves with their bare hands, carving their dream one shovelful at a time. Victor was our host. A man-boy who carries the immaculate purity of the free spirits. A man it would pain to see caged in an office job in a big city. A soul of movement, balance, and honesty. The community of instructors - a small community in a small town. Kindling the fire of the surf spirit and keeping it alive. The friends of the instructors, who flocked over once the day was done, like little birds coming to check out what is new in the garden. I could speak of facilities, price, and comfort, but that is not what I’ll remember from this trip. I live of impressions, stories, and memories, and these are the ones I’ll bring with me. Perhaps, so should you?

      Superb Service
      Great service, bikes were so easy to ride. We were given guide of where to travel which was great. We had a bit of bother on the way when we lost our key for the bike lock, of course the bikes were locked. Jay was with us within 10 minutes and could not have been nicer. Thanks a million, much appreciated.

      Good experiences over separate occassions
      I've had good experiences over 2 separate occassions with Cornish Wave Surf and Adventure, thanks to their friendly, calm and professional staff. Their pricing for some products was a little out of my range, but paying the extra pounds was definitely worth it. The thoroughness and great attention at what they do and friendliness made my experience really good so I'd happily be back for other services/new adventures. A big thanks to James, Fin and the rest of their team, Rachel I A

      Had a lot of fun and learnt a lot in a short space of time thanks to Matt, who made the lesson clear and offered his assistance when catching waves on Fiscal Beach. Zoe was helpful to fix a booking issue and very welcoming on the shop desk too, which was appreciated. Amenities to get changed and shower off at the end were provided and all in all, I’d return when back in Newquay.

      Amazing day out!
      We had SO much fun renting the e-bikes and saw so much more of Newquay than we would have seen on foot or a normal bike. Highly recommend and the best Newquay bike hire around. Super friendly team and great service. Not to be missed!

      Excellent beginners surf experience
      Amazing experience enjoyed with my son (8yo). Small group of beginners (6) of mixed adult and children. James was a fantastic instructor, great with the kids and adults alike, boosting confidence, making it great fun and made sure we all got going and caught some good waves. Highly recommend this experience and Cornish waves.

      Newquay Coasteering with Cornish Wave
      We had a great time in Newquay coasteering with Cornish Wave. We were able to get changed in their shop and being able to shower afterwards was really helpful. The coastline there was so interesting with jumps, climbs, whirlpools and a swim through cave if you were brave enough. There was even a quick history lesson about smugglers and a look in the caves they mined out to store their contraband. Thanks to Kate for a brilliant morning.

      Highly recommend Cornish Wave, great instructor and fantastic location.
      Great surf lesson with James and a small group of beginners (5). James was great and I got going a few times- what a buzz! James tweaked one some of the things I was doing wrong and that helped to get me going. 2 hours went by in no time. Cheers James! Peter F.- from Ireland.

    Coasteering was so much fun! Our guide Tom was wonderful, and really made everyone feel welcome. We had a great time jumping off rocks, swimming along the coast, and low level climbing across the rocks. Highly recommend booking with these folks, they made everyone feel super safe and provide all the equipment you need.

    This was so much fun. I didn’t really know what to expect when my girlfriend signed us up, but I’m so grateful she did. We were assigned Nick as our guide, and he was absolutely incredible (the rest of the people in the shop seemed equally as pleasant). Not only was he happy to give us a mini history lesson on our way to the coast, he was extremely thorough going over safety procedures which was very important to me. Once we got in the water, he made us feel extremely comfortable at all times, always demonstrating first, then guiding us through, and finally giving us pointers after the fact. This adventure is a total blast. From the first dive into refreshing Cornish waters, to every bit of climbing, and then of course the gnarled jumps, I couldn’t take the smile off my face if I wanted to. This adventure also provided a bit of a challenge which only gave me a little pride boost after completing an especially difficult climb or daring jump. I was truly sad when it was time to doff our kit and head back to the shop.

    I couldn’t recommend Cornish Waves enough. They split you into smaller groups so that you aren’t waiting around to do jumps or the whirlpools.(we saw other groups waiting 15 minutes to do a jump that took us 5)
    We had Max who was great. He made sure everyone was having a good time a with good banter while ensuring the lesser confident members were comfortable and felt safe. He was brilliant!
    Thanks

    Such a great experience Coasteering and cliff jumps with Max. We all jumped from much higher than we ever would have expected, and climbed, clambered and swam most of the time. Max is Very professional and responsible, highly recommended. Do explore deep water jumps and clambering adventure. Truly a wonderful experience.

    A great adventure, we loved every minute. Max our guide was FAB, really helpful, patient and funny.Max was patient with those in the group who are less confident, yet there certainly was plenty of adrenaline jumps and we especially loved swimming through the smugglers' cave. The equipment provided was in very good condition and booking and paying was also a very efficient and easy process - thoroughly recommend this company and Max as a guide.

    Our guide was very friendly and made the whole experience very fun, joking and laughing with us all. He showed us how to safely jump off of rocks and allowed us to challenge ourselves whilst also not pushing us to do so. He taught us how to traverse along the rocks around the Newquay coast! My daughter was apprehensive at first as she had not been coasteering before, but rated it a 10/10 and said she would do it again! Overall, an experience that made our holiday.

    The experience was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. We were greeted by the lovely Zoe, who checked us in. The shop is great, with a lovely deck outback and shower, for changing. All equipment was provided, you simply need a swimming costume, trainers and a towel. Our guide Adam was great, he was extremely knowledgeable of the area, marine life and could answer all of our Cornwall, adventuring and conversational questions. On the course Adam was very encouraging when it came to making some big jumps and traversing the rocks, and was tactful and reassuring to those who were not as comfortable at some of the larger heights. We had an excellent session and Advice for future travellers- don't look down! Thank you so much to Zoe, Adam and Dash.

    Genuinely such an amazing company and lifestyle group.

    Surfing Lesson - Greg & Matt were brilliant. They talked, walked and guided us through a step by step process in order to get us catching some waves. The perfect amount of knowledge/teaching vs practise/experience.

    We rented boards off Cornish wave the next day and both of us were confidentially standing on our boards riding white water waves back to the shore. So good!

    Coasteering - Victor, what a guy! We enjoyed this session so so much. An afternoon full of fun, laughs, adrenaline and incredible views. At no point did we feel unsafe or concerned even though most of it was spent outside of our comfort zones. So so worth every penny!

    We were supposed to be booked on to do the weekend wild camp alongside coasteering and surf lessons, but for reasons out of their control it had to be cancelled. Jey contacted me well in advance and did everything to make sure our weekend was still to go ahead, even offering his own air bnb apartment incase we were stuck.

    All in all an incredible weekend!

    Everything I was hoping for,, only 7 in our group with Adam as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Safety his #1 priority and was not pushy with people who were no confident on the higher jumps.
    Highest jump was 12-13 meters with loads of smaller ones to build confidence for the big stuff.
    As a solo booking I was not sure if I could join them as trip advisor says is a minimum booking of 2 people. I called them and it was no problem.
    I will probably do this again on this holiday I enjoyed it so much.

    Hands down, coasteering with Cornish Wave was one of the best experiences I’ve had. It has all the hallmarks of the bespoke, small-group, locally focused events and experiences that Airbnb Experiences is aiming for: a great team who were professional (on time, organised, knew their stuff inside out), relaxed, welcoming, and committed to making sure everyone in our little group of strangers had a great experience together for three hours of adventure. Despite the chilly April temperatures, with double wetsuits and the right footwear provided by Cornish Wave we weren’t cold after the first jump into the water - so happy about that! Because then we were able to focus on having FUN. It was brilliant to experience this beautiful slice of coastline and the open ocean in a whole new way, exploring whirlpools and gullies, traversing at sea level, and leaping off the cliffs to the extent our courage would allow. These guys respect the ocean - we weren’t able to swim in the sea caves because it’s nesting season for one of the native birds, but instead we were more than happy to do more climbing and jumping. Give it a go. I’ve enjoyed being in lakes, rivers and oceans all over the world and this is one of the best experiences, a super fun Cornwall adventure to remember.
