Great surf school for beginners - due to the location the waves are small which is good for beginners but not so suitable for experienced surfers. Max and Rhys are very friendly and great teachers so I'd highly recommend Errant for anyone wanting to learn to surf!

We had a 1.5 hour lesson here and has so much fun!! The guys were all really friendly and helpful, there was a wide range of suits and good boards. It was the first time surfing for most of us and we were all made to feel safe and comfortable to give it all a go. If you're looking for... More

Highly recommended! Organised by Max Hepworth-Povey weekend trip for private group of longboarding middle aged surfers of mixed ability. Julian and "B" man did a great job ensuring everyone was looked after both in and out of the water, pictures and videos were great as was the coaching time, everyone got something out of it including some of our more...

Excellent surfing session! Conditions were perfect for our level and although we were different levels, we both got loads out of the lesson. Reece was so patient and a great teacher. Great expert tips from Max too. Lifeguards were fantastic dealing with a pesky weaver fish sting. Thanks so much, we will be back!!

We took a group of children here for surfing lessons from a local school for 6 weeks and they loved it! Max was really helpful and the children were all really enthusiastic about coming back each week. A great set-up :)

We initially went for 2:1 surf lesson with Rhys, which was fabulous and fun. We rented board and wetsuit for rest of week. All staff were friendly, knowledgeable and keen to share their knowledge at a level easily understood by total beginners to surfing. They explained, each day, the tide, type of waves, wind and current direction and how good... More
