We're open for surf lessons and hire - Wednesday to Sunday, 9am to 5pm. From 17 May we will open seven days a week.
Right on the beach, our coaches are here in all seasons and nobody knows the Watergate Bay waves better. Learn to surf with all the kit to keep you safe and warm, and years of experience to guide you.
The Extreme Academy has been awarded recreational English surf school status by Surfing England and is a British Kitesurfing Association approved school.
Watergate Bay has some of the best waves to learn to surf in Cornwall. We have all the kit to keep you warm and expert tuition.
Watergate Bay is a Mecca for kitesurfers and with a lesson at the Extreme Academy, you’ll see why it’s the ultimate combination of wind and waves!
Stand-up paddleboarding is the oldest form of surfing; the boards used look much like an oversized longboard, ideal for learning.
Surfing might not be for everyone. So, if you are looking to get amongst the waves with your family and friends and have lots of fun, then try bodyboarding.
The latest sport creating a buzz at Watergate Bay is handplaning – a turbo-charged version of body surfing.
Easy and quick to master, a waveski is somewhere between a surfboard and a white-water kayak.
The power and the possibilities of traction kiting on the beach are incredible.
