Take your pick from waveski, kitesurf, kite buggy, land board or traction kite lessons – or try them all with an awesome ‘Extreme Day’. Watergate Bay is the ultimate playground – two perfect miles of sand and some of the most consistently good surf in the UK make it an exceptional environment for both land-based and water-based sports.

All the instructors are talented and inspiring; they have real passion for the thrilling sports they teach. Whatever your level of experience, from novice to expert, the lessons are tailored to ensure that you learn at a pace that suits you. With small groups and cutting-edge equipment, you’ll find your skills developing fast at the Extreme Academy.

The Extreme Academy’s home is a brand new, purpose built school with changing rooms, hot showers and space for safety briefings.

When you need a break to recharge your energy levels, Cornwall’s coolest beach hangout, the Beach Hut, is right next to the sand serving funky snacks and great lunches and dinners. For relaxing after an incredible day on the beach, watching the sunset from the Beach Hut is the only place to be.
