We got some group tuition at the start to get us... More

Really decent couple of lessons, with coaches who were obviously good surfers, but also not pedantic nightmares. Everyone surfs slightly differently and some coaches are a real pain in the backside if you do things differently to their ideal, but the two coaches we had were great.

Gayle was fantastic at booking me in at short notice having been let down by a different surf school. Friendly, helpful and went out of her way to find an excellent instructor, Mark and organised everything so that all I had to do was turn up. Mark talked me through rip currents and what to look out for, different types... More

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
