Absolutely AMAZING! I spent a week with Bodyboard Holidays in Newquay. Rob and Chris pick the beach with the best waves and we head out. They not only instruct you in the water but Chris takes loads of professional photos that they review with us at the end of each day’s session. Then they give you personalized instructions based on what you are doing right and what you can improve on. Seeing is believing! My skills went up dramatically by applying their pointers. You also meet other bodyboarders and make new friends. The trip was so much fun from start to finish. A MUST DO trip for anyone who loves the waves.

I have just spent an amazing weekend with Rob, Chris and a lovely bunch of people learning to bodyboard. I have been very frustrated by surfing in the past, Several attempts over decades have failed to yield any results. The hard work to fun ratio was just not good enough enough for me. Bodyboarding is a completely different kettle of fish. Despite difficult conditions on the Saturday it was still fun, and on Sunday better surf and good coaching meant I improved in leaps and bounds and had a blast. There is always at least one coach in the water with you giving you tips, encouragement and a gentle shove if necessary. I found it helpful that Rob only told you what you needed to know, when you needed to know it, without bombarding you with information. The videos and photos taken by Chris showed you areas for improvement as well as providing a great memento of the weekend. The group was a nice mix of young and more mature, male and female. No one party dominated. So I would encourage anyone to give it a go. I think I might be going back In October with Hubby

A great weekend introduction to body boarding. I was made to feel very welcome as a complete beginner and received excellent coaching despite the rest of the group being more experienced. The video feedback after each session was useful and optional social evening dinner was fun. Learned much about waves/the sea as well as the technical skills. Hope to be back to learn more !

I cannot recommend these weekends highly enough. As a complete beginner I was made to feel welcome by the whole team and the tuition was second to none. The whole weekend was tailored to increase my understanding of not only bodyboarding, but also a greater knowledge of the sea, tides, swell, wind direction and how all of these effect the chance of getting on it! Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned bodyboarder, you will see your skills improve dramatically with full video analysis given after a session. Many thanks @bodyboardholidays I will be back soon.

A really well organised weekend course that packed in a lot of info and dealt well with both novices and more experienced bodyboarders. Lots of personal instruction and attention in the water and I'll definitely do another session later in the year.
