Lessons or just hire, the people at the desk could not have been more helpful. Very friendly, very knowledgeable and great fun..Stop reading and start Surfing, although it took some of us a lot longer than others!!

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.

I booked a private lesson for my husband and I and we had a fabulous time. Theo our instructor was very patient with us, he was extremely knowledgeable and always gave feedback as to what to improve on when we fell off! We both managed to sort of stand up, and my husband enjoyed it so much he booked another... More

After being out of surfing for 5 years due to illness, I was extremely happy but nervous to join again. After a few lessons with school me and my friend joined Fistrals Grom Club, although some weeks we don't get to go into the water the instructors always have something planned for us. All the coaches are lovely. My first... More

We had the most amazing hen party surf lesson with Dani. He was absolutely brilliant and had us all laughing the whole time! He was determined to make sure we all had a good time and that we didn't go home without riding some waves....a tough challenge, but amazingly, his instruction was so good that we all nailed it! I...
