Awesome experience - Tom & Fistral Beach Surf School

Highly recommend this school for learning to surf. The foundation and practical was just amazing even though I was surfing off season in the cold.

We had a 2hr surf lesson with Liam today and couldn't describe it as anything but brilliant! Booked on a group lesson but we were lucky enough to be the only 2, so it was more or less a private lesson. Liam was great and had us both standing on our boards......eventually.

My husband and I had 2 lessons with Dani and we absolutely loved it! He was really good and clear in giving instructions, providing feedback and giving us his full attention. Not only we stood on the boards, but also had lots of fun! Very grateful for the experience, hope to be back next year.

I spent a whole week surfing with my two children (11 & 10yrs) in August and we had an absolute ball. We really didn't know what to expect, but were readily put at ease with the very friendly Fistral team. I highly recommend this school, I would not want to surf with any other school they made the experience one... More
