West Strand is a perfect backdrop and beach for our wet activities and our great team of instructors will keep you safe and make sure you have an amazing day! We also have a fantastic Hotel venue close by for our dry activities combined with a great restaurant and bar, perfect for relaxing and recovering after your teambuilding event with fantastic food and drinks. We have years of experience in making sure you and your colleagues and friends have a great day at the beach and in the hotel.

You have a range of wet and dry activities to choose from:



Learning to surf is a great way to get you and your colleagues together for a great laugh outside of the usual office environment. We can take up to 40 people in one session and have free changing facilities and warm showers right at the beach. We also provide safe storage for all your personal and valuable items. Our groups are assigned a number of qualified surf coaches, usually at a ratio of 1 coach to 6 students, and with all equipment included there are no additional extras to worry about.



PaddleboardingJumbo Paddleboard 

Paddleboarding is accessible by all as the board is much bigger than a surfboard. It is much easier to balance on and is a brilliant slow-down activity that helps you to relax while improving balance and coordination! The Jumbo Paddleboard is a fantastic teambuilding tool as it encourages effective communication and coordination



Teambuilding games

Our teambuilding games are a great way to break down barriers and inhibitions and important in losing any pre-conceived ideas team members might have of one-another and help coming to a decision as a team. Further key benefits include communication, problem solving and flexible thinking. We have developed options that can be done on the beach or in the water.



 Treasure hunts / Scavenger hunts

Our most popular Teambuilding challenge is the creative scavenger hunt, which involves problem solving, finding items, sounds and shapes and communicating with each other and the public. At the end each group presents their solutions and the winners receive a price. Each scavenger hunt can be fully customised to your group and goals.



We can also take pictures and video clips of the day and for a small fee can provide you all the footage of your group from the surfing lesson – ideal if you are looking for those “different” staff photos for your website! And if you are looking for a bit of lunch or dinner after the lessons, then we can arrange your meal in one of our great partner restaurants and bars.

So if you want something a bit different for your corporate day out, the just contact us with your anticipated dates and numbers and you can be sure your staff will thank you for it and be chatting about it over the water cooler for weeks to come!
