We went coasteering with Newquay Activity Center as part of a team building exercise. Our instructors Grant, Elliott and Bruce were absolutely brilliant, good fun as well as very competent and safety conscious. Will definitely be back for other activities :)

Thanks to Henry for a great surfing lesson last week. Patient, technically knowledgable and impressive camera skills too! I didn't know I'd managed to stand up that many times! This was a really fun way of spending a day on holiday.
