A must do whilst in Newquay!

Great experience, good value for money, friendly staff and one lesson gave all confidence we needed to go it alone.

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

Just returned from another weekend in Newquay! A surprise visit for our children aged 14, 14 & 10. We've used the surf school before but every time we visit their enthusiasm, professionalism & friendly nature just gets better. Jenny, Dani & Liam, you guys are amazing. The girls love the fact you remember them & you always make us all... 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...

We had booked a surf lesson for a hen weekend, our instructor Theo was wicked, he gave us so much help and made the lesson fun. I went into the lesson thinking I wouldn't even get on the board but actually managed everything we were taught. I only wish I lived closer so I could do so I could go... More

£14 for a day rental of wetsuit and bodyboard was in my eyes good value for what it was, i.e. quality equipment. The reason this does not get 5* is that the older man working at the hire shop was somewhat rude, I could tell he was going to be a problem after I saw him get agitated at a... More

My Girlfriend and I booked surf lessons with these guys who are situated right on the beach. We were welcomed with a smile when we arrived and handed wetsuits to get changed into. They made us aware they would look after any valuables whilst we were out. Once we had got changed we were given surf boards and asked to... More

There's so many good things I could write about these guys but I would be writing for some time.... Basically this was my first lesson, feeling unsure and uneasy not knowing what to expect Liam greeted us on our arrival and was very helpful checking us in. We grabbed a wetsuit, got changed, and headed straight out on to the... More
