Frequently Asked Questions

Yes definitely! We pride ourselves on being super welcoming and friendly. Most of our guests arrive solo and leave with friends for life.

To work with the majority of coasteer companies, you need to gain an SLSGB Surf Coach Safety and Rescue Award (or similar). In order to complete this award, you need to be able to swim 200 metres in under 5 minutes. This is quite achievable for most standards of swimmers.

We advise you to train in the swimming pool prior to the course. To participate in the coasteer training we recommend that you have a reasonable level of swimming. You could then train to prepare for the SLSGB qualification if you chose to take it.

You can still join the course. We will supply you with pre-course training recommendations that will help you to achieve the standard. No doubt, it is harder to pass if you have never experienced coasteering before, but you can learn everything you need throughout the training.

As you can imagine, the fitter you are, the easier it is. But, that said, it isn’t a triathlon! Our coaching sessions are usually two hours long and you can participate at your own steam. If you need to rest, you can. Our pre-course training programme will help you prepare for the course. When you have passed qualification, you will need a lifesaving qualification, this will mean that you need to gain a minimum standard of swimming 200 metres in under 5 minutes. This is achievable for most individuals and sometimes requires some swim training to achieve the standard.

We have an excellent range of wetsuits, wetsuit boots, gloves and hats. We also have a huge range of helmets and buoyancy aids. Just let us know at time of booking and we will reserve your equipment, this is included in the price of the course.

Most pupils stay in one of the following:

  • An Air BnB (there is a huge range of options in Newquay).
  • Surf Lodge Accommodation (we work closely with Smarties, Escape and Ocean Surf Lodge).
  • Hotel or Guesthouse (check Booking.com for the options or drop us a line for recommendations).
  • Oceanside Hotel (our guests receive an exclusive discount, please chat with us about this option).
  • Their van (there is a great range of campsites and touring parks nearby).

The relevant lifesaving qualifications are available at our centre. It works out cheaper to book both of your courses with us. Please reach out to the adventuro team via the online chat if you would like to do this.

Cover for public liability will be in place whilst you partake in activities with our activity centre, this is to a limit of £5 million. Personal accident cover is available, similar to travel insurance (injuries due to accidents etc.) and this is something participants can acquire themselves by looking online if they wish to purchase. Insurance is a topic covered during the course Q&A sessions so that everyone is clear of how this works in the outdoor industry.

There will generally be ratios of 1:8 (instructor to pupil) for all activity training. However, theory classes may have larger ratios. You’ll often be broken down into smaller groups.

You must be over 18 to join the course. If you are 65 or over, or under 18 we’d love to chat to you about the course before you book, so please drop a message to the adventuro team via the online chat and they will get us on a phone call together.

How it works: 

  1. Make a booking.
  2. The centre will accept your booking, usually within an hour or two.
  3. Pay for the booking to confirm it.

If you have specific questions, please put them in the comments section, and the centre will answer before you pay.
