Lonely Planet review

Newquay's awash with places to learn to surf, offering everything from half-day taster lessons (£25 to £30) to full-blown multiday 'surfaris' (from £130). When choosing your school, make sure it's approved by the BSA (British Surfing Association). Reputable operators include National Surfing Centre and Extreme Academy .
