The staff were all so very helpful. We had to move the date and time of the lesson at very short notice. They were great about it and managed to reorganise it for us without making a huge deal about it. Our instructor Liam was really good. He talked us through the basics and then got us in the water...

Have been going to the surf school on the beach at Fistral for three years now. All the staff are very enthusiastic and patient in the water with everyone of all ages. As a family the lessons suit everyone individually well- also we are all very tired always after the lessons. Thanks for a great week!

Having a challenging work life I needed to chill out and gain some balance. It was my birthday week and reaching 51 this was my first time surfing. I took the one-to-one lessons and despite not being the most agile I did manage to surf (sort of) Such a friendly welcoming group of people, zero pressure, just fun.

Spent last weekend in Newquay as a treat for my 50th birthday, organised by my wife. One of my activities was a surfing lesson with the Fistral beach surf school, which was very enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and moved my original booking back a day due to the lack of waves. The instructor was clear and keen to... More

We were back in Newquay so revisited Fistral beach surf school, had a fabulous time! We got all the equipment for the day with a lesson in the morning, so much fun!! We will be back again, as before the instructors were great and all wetsuits were lovely and warm. Completely exhausted at the end of the day though!

I have never surfed before and booked two lessons. The staff were so friendly and helpful (as they all are in Fistral) and set me at ease instantly. Within two lessons I was standing up more often than not. Although the waves were only very small, it didn't matter as the instructors were so good, you still saw the value... More

Right on the beach, first class equipment, friendly and competent staff - Dani, our instructor was very good with me (I seemed to be glued to my board when the waves came and it was time to push up and stand …) and with the girls, one of them was rather sceptical in the beginning whether this is fun or...

We had a brilliant time learning how to surf, we had two lessons and on both occasions both myself and my boyfriend managed to stand up surfing. The tuition was great, gave us a good technique to begin with and then provided more tips of how to improve when in the water. Both instructors were very knowledgeable, friendly and professional....
