Being a first time surfer I was made feel comfortable and safe on a very busy July day where the gorgeous weather brought out lots of people to the beach and into the water. We chose this school due to location, there are cheaper but not right on Fistral beach! In a class of only 6 it was great! A... More

After having my first ever surf lesson here in June, I was hooked. The instructor, Liam, was really encouraging and friendly and had me standing in less than an hour! I have since been back for further lessons (both group and one-to-one) with instructors Liam, Luke and Sab, all of which are great and really enthusiastic. They have really helped... More

My children (13 & 10) spent 3 days with the surf school and never surfed before. Instructors were what you would expect, friendly and good fun. The kids loved it (even though one has a fear of the sea) and by the second lesson was standing up. Would recommend. Not the cheapest, but you're paying to learn on Fistral Beach... More

First I would like to thank you for helping me understand the basics of surfing, firstly because arriving at the surf school I was nervous and a complete beginner, (Sab) my instructor taught me an outstanding amount within my 2 hour lesson and gave me one to one feedback which was nice. The surf school is based right on the... More

Well, What can I say, I went to this surf school on a whim ( abit worse for wear) and wow, I'm glad I did, I was a complete rookie, but my instructor ( Liam (Nice chap)) had no issues helping me understand when to paddle, how to read what the waves are going to do, and the basics for... More

We (a family of four,aged between 43-14) had three lessons booked with Fistral beach surf school. Our beginners lesson was with Liam and he was fantastic, so helpful and just brilliant. The next lesson we were in improvers with Danny and yet again we had an amazing time especially as we were a little spoilt having him to ourselves. We... More

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...
