Jim the instructor was professional and patient with my children and the grown ups in our group. The boys ended up having 3 lessons with Jim they loved it so much.

Myself & my husband have never surfed before so we were a little apprehensive at first. This didn't last because Jimmy (our instructor) put us at ease straight away! The tuition was excellent from start to finish. An amazing experience and we both even managed to stand up!!...albeit not for very long but for our first lesson we were totally... More

My experience at the surf school was a fantastic one. The instructor was clear with safety and advise in a very relaxed and friendly way. Parking here was easy and the beach was a nice short walk away. Will be looking to go back!

Have never tried surfing before, but always wanted to, so my friend and I booked with Quiksilver for a weekend's instruction. Unfortunately my serious lack of fitness meant that I just about survived the Saturday, (though it took my body about 2 weeks to recover), and parked out of the Sunday, but I really, really enjoyed the time spent on...
