“we had never before surfed. The staff were brilliant, they made us all feel relaxed, issuing us our wetsuits etc… The instruction given was really clear and professional, safety and fun were both given equal importance. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone”

“I brought a group of students from Sweden here to do a surf lesson during October. They were all absolutely thrilled with the experience and despite having no experience in surfing grasped it quite well. This was obviously down to the excellent instructors. Highly recommended.”
