Body boarding is an epic addition to the activities on your Newquay stag weekend! It's a little bit easer than surfing, but it's still got a massive adrenaline quota!
Body boarding is the art of using a float-style board (which is attached to your wrist with a flexible cord) to body-surf on broken or unbroken waves. Because you don't have to stand up, there's less technique to worry about, and that means it's a great introduction to water sports!
Don't be fooled into thinking body boarding is somehow less of a full-on sport than surfing, though. It's different, but it's still epic. And because your body is close to the wave for the whole ride, you actually get a more intimate experience of the way the water works. It's a sport that's perfect for helping novice surfers get a better understanding of wave riding, as well as a big adrenaline hit in its own right.
For your Newquay stag weekend, we'll hook you up with an experienced surf instructor who's also a qualified life guard. You'll learn key skills (like reading and catching waves) on the beach, before being thrown into waist-deep water for as much board time as possible!
This is a rock-solid addition to any outdoorsy stag weekend. Suit up, strap those boards to your wrists, and get in the waves.
