Walk on Water Ocean Adventures
Walk on Water Ocean Adventures is a family run Cornish business. Paul, Ryan, Tom & Michael know the area, its beaches and coastline very well. Together this family team has over 100 years of surfing & ocean experience, and are qualified lifeguards and surf instructors. Walk on water is a term that people today use to express an inability to do something that they believe is impossible for them - like 'walking on water'! At Walk on Water Ocean Adventures we help, encourage and teach people to achieve amazing things and we aim to make extraordinary things possible for all.
We specialise in enabling people of all ages and ability to have a go at doing something they've not done before or believe is impossible for them, whether that's to stand up on a board, ride a wave or conquer a fear of heights, water or waves. Our aim is to get you to walk on water!
We work hard to ensure that everyone is safe and has a lot of fun whilst stepping up to a challenge to walk on water! Paul taught all three of his sons to surf and enjoy and respect the ocean. Together with them they have many years experience in helping youth groups to enjoy the ocean, in a safe and supportive environment.
Whether it's your first time surfing or you're looking to improve the basic skills our lessons are just what you need. All lessons last 2.5 hours and all equipment (wetsuit and board) is included. Our lessons will normally be held at Gwithian Beach in the beautiful St Ives Bay. The section of the beach we use is perfect for beginners and improvers and is away from the crowds providing a safe environment to learn & improve. We are also mobile, so we can generally always find suitable surf whatever the conditions.
Choose us because, we believe that you come first! Our approach is to tailor our lessons to you or a groups needs, we don't have a "one size fits all" approach. This means starting from where you are at, whether you're a complete novice or an improver - either way we’re committed to you seeing an improvement by the end of the session, whether that's to have you standing up for the first time or making and completing turns.
Coasteering is an exciting new way of exploring a section of the coast through scrambling, climbing, jumping and open water swimming. Walk on Water provides you with a choice of 3 coasteering routes - each with different but increasing levels of challenge.
Experience coasteer is our introduction to coasteering session for those new to the activity. It offers 2 hours of open water swims, exploring caves, gullies, and jumps into deep water (optional) all geared to the ability level of the group.
Expedition Coasteering is suitable for those wanting to explore the coastline from the sea not the shore! Our expedition coasteer sessions take you on a 2 hour long exploration of the coast discovering it's history, geology, wildlife and fauna in an action packed aquatic treasure hunt.
Wow-surf extreme coasteer sessions are designed to go beyond the demanding rock jumps by adding another dimension, whether it be the competitive challenge of point to point team racing, or negotiating sea swell covered reefs and rock gullies. Extreme coasteering will test your stamina, skill and nerves – are you up to the challenge?. (Suitable only for those who've comfortably completed our Experience/coasteering session or can demonstrate a suitable level of fitness.)
SUP lessons & Tours
Stand Up Paddleboarding is a great new sport suitable for almost all ages, from 8-80! It's fantastic fun for all the family and a great way to keep fit. Unlike surfing, paddleboarding is very easy to learn. Often within one hour you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board. Stand up paddleboarding is also more popular with women because of their lower center of gravity, women are more often skilled at paddleboarding than men. We offer beginner lessons and Tours in calm flat coastal waters in south west Cornwall.
