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....

We booked the surfing session as part of a hen weekend. Absolutely fantastic time - our instructor Lee was excellent, especially as we had such a wide range of abilities! As it was March we were worried about being cold but by the time we were all kitted up we were all toasty and warm. GREAT value for money with... More

I had an amazing first ever surfing lesson with instructor Jenny at Fistral Beach Surf School. They provided all the equipment I didn't need to bring anything. Not knowing what to expect and worried I may be cold but Jenny explained everything to me and I felt relaxed and at ease and within no time at all, I was putting... More
