Very friendly instructor who knew his subject very well. The explanations were clear and concise and tailored feedback was given to each member of the group. On my beginner lesson, we spent a good chunk of the time in the water. There were other, much larger groups on the beach from other schools who seemed to spend most of their... More

These guys are brilliant- very friendly, approachable and relaxed- in and out of water. Dale knows his stuff and made me feel very comfortable and confident really quickly. He keeps the classes small so he can focus on every person and everyone gets personalised feedback. He picked up on so many small mistakes I wouldn't in ages figure out I... More

Came across these guys via a web search before an Easter weekend trip. Dale was very friendly, upfront and helpful. Andy took us for our intro lesson and gave us the benefit of his years of experience. Straight forward and helpful advice. We managed to get up by the end of the session although I guess staying up is for... More
