A group of friends and I tried surfing for the first time during our stay down in Cornwall. We didn't intend on trying surfing but the super friendly instructors persuaded us to and none of us regretted it! Our very friendly and helpful surf instructor made us feel very safe and we would definitely do it again!

I visited the Big Green Surf School last year already. So for me, there was no doubt coming back to this wondeful place. Dale and Andy are brilliant teachers. Both helped me quickly, catching the first sets of waves and stand up again. They put the right effort into the teaching. And because the groups are no more then six... More

It's always a blast to have the "Pilcher" crew down for a surf! We're gonna have to tweak our advertising to include wildlife tours based on that review haha! Thanks for all your help in your role as "group leader" this year, your surfing was improving each and every time you jumped into a wetsuit - looking forward to next... More

Such an amazing place! All the staff are kind and friendly. The whole atmosphere of the place made you feel really welcoming. Definitely will be going back, rather sooner than later. And the weather was perfect for a surf lesson (:

Me and my friends went back to Newquay this summer to have surfing lessons with Dale the head coach. We were there last year and had one lesson with Dale and because of his patients and teaching skills; I stood up on my first try!! So when I went back this year he gave me a more advanced board and... More

Dale took us for our first lesson and managed to get 3/5 of us standing in an hour! Waves require to be white stallions I believe was the phrase used for the other 2! Amazing beach. Well informed lesson and the time spent out the water was just as much fun as the time in the water. Would thoroughly recommend... More

Though we where suffering horrifically that morning, Andy managed to twist our arms into surfing. Was definitely the best choice. Thorough, methodic and patient. Just as eager to get you into the water as you are and a good laugh in general. Even if he is a bit of a let down on the nights ;) See you next year,... More

Me and my mates went to Newquay last year and we had all planned to go surfing (get lessons). Like most of our trips, it doesn't always go according to plan.

Myself and a few mates stayed at base lodge which was awesome. We met Dale the next morning down at breakfast who spoke to us about surfing and if we were interested in lessons while we were down. We jumped at the chance and after the first lesson with Dale we were all hooked. His knowledge was excellent and even... More

We really enjoyed our afternoon surf lesson. Lovely instructor Andy explained techniques really clearly and tried really hard to get us all standing on the boards in just one lesson, we even have some great photos to prove it! Loved the small group with one to one tips. A brilliant taster experience for me and teenage daughters, we got alot... More
