Extreme Academy

Learning to surf is the just the beginning.

Try a new sport or get to the next level with ready-to-ride lessons on Watergate Bay beach.

Open 9am – 5pm, seven days a week.


Surfing for the first time can be nerve racking. Our coaching is designed to give you confidence in the water.

We have years of experience, full qualifications and professional grade equipment for six watersports.

Most importantly, we’re watermen. We love our work, sharing our experience and passion for the sea, and take pride in the positive reviews we get year after year.

We coach all levels and all generations (kids 8+ for surfing) across a range of sports. So whether you’re an improver, a whole family, or just someone looking to try something new, we’ll have a lesson to suit you.

The Extreme Academy is based right down on the beach, decked out with hot showers, changing facilities and secure lockers. We’re open year round too. So there’s nothing standing in your way.
