Had an amazing two days surfing with the Big Green Surf school. We were a group of mixed abilities, but that was never a problem and we all had an amazing time. The instructor was great fun and didn't waste any time getting us in the water. Really top notch!

We decided to go surfing to Newquay and wanted some lessons. After spending a while scrolling through the many surf schools in the area we chose to look into Big Green as we couldn't find a bad review and the school seemed to have a more personal touch, as opposed to some of the larger more corporate schools in the...

Apologies for the time take to get round to writing this... ...I think I am only just recovering from the melancholy of the return to the decidedly busier and less coastal Sheffield. Stayed at Base Surf Lodge with my 16yo son for a post GCSE trip. Dale was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the planning of the 'surf and stay'... More

Went for my first ever surf lesson with big green surf school and they were great. Our instructor started with the basics and gave us lots of tips to improve our technique throughout. By the end of the lesson we were all stood up on our boards surfing the waves, which I did not expect!! Friendly staff and very close... More

The fact that the staff started right from the beginning of the syllabus with the surfing lessons was really handy, especially for me because I had never done surfing before! They got me surfing in no no time!

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 (:
