Great tuition - most of the other schools have huge classes so there is no way that you can get the personal instruction so brilliantly given by Dale. The equipment was top quality, the pace and content of the course was perfect. My 11 year old daughter is now raving about surfing and asking when we get a board. Many... More

I really couldn't recommend the Big Green Surf School more, me and a couple of friends went for the 5 days of lessons and had an absolutely awesome time. The coach Dale was fantastic, his passion, enthusiasm, patience and incredible knowledge of surfing helped us all to build up our technique and confidence, and so we all progressed rapidly over...

Dale is an extremely knowledgeable surf coach, and has both the enthusiasm and the ability, to pass that on from the moment you meet him. My partner and I have just spent 4 nights at the Surf Lodge, and had 5 lessons, on top of some wave theory... More

The Big Green Surf School is excellent!!! Dale the instructor is a great tutor. He's very experienced, competent and hugely enthusiastic about your progression in surfing. Me and a couple of friends had five lessons over five days. During the first lessons we were all standing surfing our first wave! By the end of the week our skill had improved... More

Big Green Surf School is not only the best surf school in Newquay but, to me anyway, the whole of the UK (If you don't believe me then book a lesson and make up your own mind!) I have been surfing for around a year and a half and was looking to improve my skills. I hoped to learn the... More

It was a fantastic experience! Dale did a great job in teaching as he was competent and enthusiastic! You learn how to surfe in five steps which are build up on each other. After just two hours you will ride the first waves! Awesome!

My two sons 10 and 14 had 2 lessons and they were the highlight of their holiday thanks. Communication with the school before the lessons was excellent. Finding the school was easy with parking opposite. Both coaches were friendly and brilliant with the children, they can't wait to go again. Again thanks for a great time.
