I had a surf lesson at this surf school. The surf lesson was fairly good and enjoyable but two issues I'd flag up - the car park they have by the hotel is tiny, so there may not be a space, and if there is it will be very difficult to get in to. Not a huge problem though, as... More

Love surfing with ADAM's!!

Dave can't do enough to make sure everyone is happy and we had such brilliant surf coaches for every lesson as well as... More

We recently had a holiday in Cornwall and received very good service from Dave who welcomed us explained what a surfing lesson would entail and booked us in with an excellent instructor, Matt. Trying to surf will be a lasting memory!

These guys made it such fun, even for oldies like me. Super friendly and very reasonably priced. My kids loved it and are now hooked. Don't go anywhere else...these guys will have you surfing in one session. Best money I spent all holiday.

A massive thank you to Dave and the team from Adam's surf school. I had to arrange a stag do for 20 guys in Newquay and I found this surf school online. They are very competitive with prices, especially with large groups. Communication before hand was spot on and Dave was available to promptly answer any questions I had about... More

I was very nervous as it was my first time surfing but Dave was very friendly and put us all at ease. I felt a bit of an 'old sausage' on the board - but all the instructors were helpful, professional and very patient! I would recommend Adams Surf School to anyone thinking of having a go at surfing or... More

I recently had a lesson with Adams Surf school with 17 others as a Stag do activity. Any hangover was quickly shaken off by the enthusiastic team and their warmup. We then had a good technique tutorial and it was into the surf! The closer you get to standing up the more fun it gets and i was hooked straight... More
