A 23-24 surf club membership will be required. 

We will be taking a night coach on Thursday night to get to Newquay for Friday morning. You are welcome to make your way down by other means. 

If you pay for a place but are unable to come, we will try and find a someone to take your place. Refunds will not be given from the club. 

Details about transport, payment, and scheduling will be put in a group chat later for those who secure a spot on the trip.

Surf rental:

  • We have an existing deal with Sunset Surf Newquay which gives us great deals on boards, wetties, gloves and boots
  • They have foamies + softechs of different sizes 
  • They do have hardboards (Torq) but not a wide selection, may be better off going to a different shop if you want a shortboard

  • More details on kit rental will be released later

Tickets will be available from 6th November.
