Our trip was a while ago- but I was just recommending Surfing the Dream to yet another friend and decided that I must go back and write a review (maybe even book another trip). Matt was wonderful working with all of us- two adults in our mid 30's, a 10 yr. old, and an 8 yr. old- all with absolutely... More

Thanks to Matt & Kirsteen for a fantastic experience. Highly recommended for a personal, professional surfing lesson. Hope to book again soon.

After last year's introduction for some of our group, we had another surfing lesson with Matt and Kirsteen this year and the experience was every bit as good as first time around. Matt's diligence with safety and technique, combined with his instruction and fun in the water, meant we all (age range from my 10 year old niece to me... More

This was the second time I have used Surfing the Dream, the first two years ago with friends from work, and this time with my brother. Matt tailored the lesson to suit both a beginner and a (rusty) amateur - we were both standing within the first hour, and went out back (of the waves) on our second lesson, increasing... More

My 10 year old daughter Amy has just experienced her first surfing lesson and it couldn't have been a more positive and special experience. Matt and Kirsteen have a wonderful mix of patience and knowledge which made this a most memorable day. From the first steps of learning about the safety and understanding the techniques of transferring her enthusiasm from... More

Just had my second lesson, this time with Mat. So pleased to have stood up on the board first time :).With a friendly and enthusiastic instructor who takes it at a great pace, this is a superior surfing school in Newquay!

Can't recommend enough... both me and my 9 year old daughter loved the experience. Matt was an effective listener and great communicator. This experience i can never describe the feeling perfectly.....you have to live it to feel it. So get yourself down there!!! What a way to start the day on the morning of our return to west london ....

I had a beginners surf lesson with my niece and nephew on Saturday 18th August, it was the most amazing experience. The instructor really got the kids involved and although I struggled, Matt provided a very hands on approach, even going so far as to assist me getting up on the board, as I was getting really tired. He is... More

I have had surfing lessons previously but could never master it but Matt had me up on the first wave and every wave after! He is a very good coach, giving you feedback after every wave to make sure he had you standing. Both Kirsteen and Matt are welcoming and very friendly, also providing me with an excellent Lodge to...
