Four Elements Adventure based in Newquay Cornwall, specialises in training and consultancy for those involved in Outdoor Adventure Activities. We prepare people and organisations to take groups into the outdoor environment safely, both commercially and for leisure.


We focus on outdoor instructor, coach and guide training, beach lifeguard courses, event safety and the training/provision of personnel for outdoor events.


One of Four Elements primary aims, is conceived from an enjoyment of the natural environment as a playground for outdoor adventure activities and thus we strive to retain it in its current, if not enhanced natural state, by conducting regular beach and coastal cleanups as well as promoting environmental education and the 'leave no trace' principles.


We also promote and encourage 2-minute beach cleans at the end of all our beach training sessions and we strive to keep our facilities 'plastic free' .



All our courses include both theory and practical elements and run throughout the year. Theory work starts as soon as you book your course. You are able from the comfort of your home, to join our weekly online theory training sessions.  This means that even through lockdown, or local restrictions you are able to get ahead with your training. This will also put you ahead of the rest when it comes to the practical elements of the course. 


Through consultation with other governing bodies and experts, we have designed and delivered several online training sessions already in 2020.



The one thing we are allowed to do this winter is to get outside. There is nowhere better to keep physically and mentally fit than in the outdoors. We can offer you your own personal safety person for your own or your family's adventurous activities. We can cover safety for any water or coastal based activity including wild swimming, coasteering, surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.


All sessions will be socially distanced, Covid compliant and inline with government guidelines.

Become qualified to save lives in or around the sea. 

To become a Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeguard, you need a National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification (NVBLQ) or equivalent. This Beach Lifeguard Award is also recognised by the International Life Saving Federation, so it will enable you to work worldwide.​ Our courses take place at the award-winning Newquay Activity Centre based right on Towan beach in the centre of Newquay. As far as training venues go, they don't get much better as your classroom looks directly the beach. Towan beach is sheltered from most winds and has great surf, making it one of the best training venues in the UK.
