Danny from Spain is a fabulous instructor - as with all needy beginners, the aim of the game was to stand up and with his helpful tips, I managed it 4 times! Rock and roll!

What can I say. Lee is a top instructor. Start to finish kept me trying to achieve the goal of standing up. Mission successful. The location is just perfect. Equipment clean and plentiful. If you are thinking of trying this give these guys a go it's well worth it.

We love Fistral, great to see some new additions such as the pasty bar, didn't see Liam at Fistral surf school, that was a shame. For the best holiday in the UK stay near Fistral beach, it's outstanding and the surf is great.

Our three boys (9,12 and 15) had a great time on the beach. They had never surfed before, but thanks to Dani they all managed to stand on the board within an hour. Great recomendable fun.
