Surfing holidays at Watergate Bay

Surf lessons at the Extreme Academy are a great way to make the very best of your time at Watergate Bay. Get in the sea during the day and then relax in Swim club and in one of the three hotel restaurants during the evening.


We don’t do things by halves, as our name would suggest. Our team are all about getting out on the sand or into the water, being active and most of all, having fun! Our adrenalin-filled sports are the best way to experience the two miles stretch of sand at Watergate Bay.

A specialist school for surfing, kitesurfing, waveski, stand-up paddlesurf and new to the mix, handplaning, the Extreme Academy is one of Britain’s leading venues for beach sports, events and competitions. Open all year round, the Extreme Academy offers technical equipment hire with fully trained and expert tuition.

Our instructors will tailor the lessons to suit your ability and we’ll include all the equipment you need to keep you warm and safe. We also have hot showers, lockers and changing facilities.

After your lesson, chill out in Swim Club, eat and drink well in one of the four restaurants in the Bay. You will have worked up an appetite.
