In the 12 years we’ve been running Base Surf Lodge, our aim has always been to provide the best place for you to come and learn to surf and to develop any rad board skills you already have. We love where we live and encourage you to come and experience coastal living for yourself, even if just for a few days.
Due to the endless list of health benefits and for the pure enjoyment it gives, we feel that surfing is the ultimate ocean endeavour, especially on the north coast of Cornwall. Through surf coaching we aim to provide our guests with the knowledge and skillset to enjoy the power of the ocean and reap its rewards by riding along waves.
As a couple, we highly value good quality food in our own lives and want to share our passion for cooking with you. No matter what your dietary needs are, we want to provide you with a unique eating experience. Using carefully selected fresh, local and whole foods we love to cook up a big family feast on our wood-fired barbecue.
With private and shared dorm room options you can choose your perfect getaway. Our shared dorm style rooms are ideal if you are travelling alone and would like to meet other like-minded surfaholics. While our private options are great for couples, small groups of friends and families.
Our communal bathrooms are newly renovated with a modern and boutique feel. The cozy living area provides you with a space to relax with a freshly pressed coffee or to make use of the free wifi and catch up on some work from home.
If you can’t get enough of the outdoors then head out into our tropical garden to soak up some rays and take in the fresh sea-breeze. While you’re there, why not test your green fingers and see how many veggies you can name that are growing in the raised beds.
Base Surf Lodge is located in the most perfect location, at the heart of British surfing. Newquay boasts a thriving surf culture with a beautiful coastline.
