I can't recommend this school enough, I went for a weekend with my boyfriend to Newquay and was looking for some good surf instructors as my friends have had some negative experiences with surf instructors at other schools in Newquay ...and felt like it was a waste of money. I called Dale at Big Green Surf school before Our trip... More

Dale was great fun and an awseome instructor! I went from being a begginer surfer to standing up on some big unbroken waves! The groups were small so we got alot of pointers wich sped up me learning rapidly!!! I highly recomend Big Green Surf School!!!

Myself and five friends book a surfing lesson and higher from this place and it was awesome! The guys gave us a really good deal and an excellent surf lesson. We felt as if we had the basics by the end of it which allowed us to surf for the rest of our stay! I recommend this to anyone looking... More

We stayed at the base surf lodge earlier this month and had lessons every day with Big Green Surf School. We went out mostly with Andy but I had one lesson with Dale too. Both instructors were brilliant. They explained everything so clearly and had us standing up and surfing in no time. We surfed in a group of five... More

Another great lesson from the guys at Big Green. This time Andy took me to the waves, and reassuringly continued where Dale left off last year. Slowly but surely things started to come back to me, and it wasn't long before Andy gave me a 'high five' for putting it all together and standing (momentarily) on the wave. Can't recommend... More

Big Green Surf School are excellent and I would highly recommend them! Dale and Andy are great guys with a lot of experience; they are extremely helpful and positive when you need them to be and you can tell they absolutely love their job :) A massive bonus is the small groups, which enable the guys to work more on...

Dale and Andy are so friendly and relaxed, they give super clear steps to follow and lots of confidence so that I was standing up very quickly. They give tips to the group as a whole and to individuals so that everyone can progress. Such a brilliant time and the price so reasonable! Thanks for a super time guys hope... More

Had a surf lesson with Dale and really enjoyed the experience. Clean, great quality wetsuits were included, along with a green top to make us identifiable from the beach. Was Dale a great teacher and delivered his advice after watching what you need to focus on. Would definitely go back for more lessons. Price was £25 with all the kit... More

The school was great and standing up first time was a real bonus. Great value for money compared to other schools in town. Friendly service and small group size like having a private lesson

This is a great school for anyone looking to learn or improve there surfing. The main man and the other instructors are super friendly and give you easy instruction on improving your technique individually, and make the lessons fun and enjoyable. And with the location being so close to the beach, it means not having to carry the boards too... More
