Newquay Cornish Games Stag Do Activity
Cornish Challenge (Goofy Games)
Duration: 2.5 hours (including enrolment)
Location: Fistral Beach, Newquay
What is The Cornish Challenge?
The Cornish Challenge is Newquay’s answer to the Highland Games. Get some proper banter going amongst your group by competing in The Cornish Challenge, a competitive contest perfect for stag and hen weekends. You’ll pit your wits against each other in California-style beach games that include surf and lifeguarding skills on the sands of Fistral Beach.
Your group will be split into 2 teams then flexing muscles and brain cells, yes – you’ll need both – you’ll take part in a paddle relay race, Tug ‘o’ war, the surfboard tunnel challenge, a lifeguard’s flag sprint, beach volleyball and Aqua Targets, a game that tests your throwing skills and nerve. Open to non-swimmers, no prior skills are required apart from the will to win!
What will happen during our activity?
Your Cornish Challenge session includes:
- Meet and greet at Newquay Activity Centre with your guides.
- Enrolment and allocation team vests. (During colder months wetsuits will be provided)
- Suit up in our heated changing rooms with safe storage for valuables.
- Safety talk for the whole party.
- Two hours of games, challenges and banter!

What equipment do I need?
All you will need to bring with you is swimwear, towel, shorts & t-shirt and a pair of lace up trainers. You may wish to bring a change of clothes as the shorts and t shirt are likely to get wet and sandy during the session. If you will be joining us during the warmer months then we recommend bringing along some sun cream.
Is it safe?
Yes of course!. Your session will be run by trained staff and each instructor is a qualified Beach Lifeguard. All our Cornish Challenge sessions take place on our flat sandy beaches and all of the challenges have been tried and tested by our very own instructors to ensure maximum safety and fun!
