I would like to thank Ben who thought us how to surf for 3 years. Whilst not only is the teaching amazing, you are able to rent at such good rates you wouldn't think it was possible. For wetsuits, surfboards and bodyboards. Also would like to thank Gemma as well for teaching me how to stand on the board for... More

I cannot recommend this place highly enough, our daughter and her best friend had a ball doing both the surfing and coasteering. Candy was lovely, friendly and very professional from our first phone call to book and throughout the whole experience, Kim was brilliant during the surfing lesson and Jamie and Ben were fantastic during the coasteering. The girls loved... More

The best thing we have done as a family. Mum, Dad and kids aged 16,13,11 and 9 all catered for. Kim was especially good at making it just the right level for youngest. And we ALL got up on the board! Very highly recommended. Xx

My husband and two daughters (9 & 10) had two lessons with Ben over last weekend. They had a fantastic time, the girls getting very proficient, if my husband less so! Already planning a return trip. Excellent personal service, well worth paying extra for.

She had a private lesson with Candy that lasted for 2 1/2 hours down on Fistral... More

I booked at the last minute and was so glad I did.Ben and Candy are professional and supportive in their approach . My daughter had a private lesson with Candy, I imagine the rapport between teacher and student has to be good to give the student confidence and the whole experience for my daughter was exceptional, she even managed to...
