When you stand up on your first wave it is the uncontrollable, throw your hands in the air and scream feeling, if only for a few seconds!! Once you can ride a wave, it is the undeniable urge to go back for more, and when you are on the beach and the sun is shining it is enormous fun!! Learn to surf...the only way you can really understand what all the fuss is about is to get some gear and get wet!! That’s where we can help. « less

Impressive surf school at reasonable cost and our instructor Mo was really friendly and helpful throughout our lesson. Wetsuits and boards were decent kit and we managed to get onto some good waves in our 2-hour session. Mo was always nearby with advice and helped us when we weren't quite getting there without being over-the-top with help so we felt... More

My husband and I hired equipment during a break for my birthday. We spent two hours in the sea and had a great time! Friendly service and quick replies to emails and good prices too. Thank you :)

We were there for a hen party and had two hours of laughs! the surf instructors were very encouraging and offered lots of helpful tips (not that there was ever much hope of us managing to stay on our feet). They created a very friendly environment and we had an amazing day. I would recommend bringing food with you for... More

We booked in for a beginners lesson - and luckily enough to have the chance to try paddle boarding and surfing. It was just my husband & I with Tom the instructor and it was just as brilliant as we were hoping. Tom was great - encouraging, supportive & really put us at ease. We were worried about being cold...

We booked for a beginner session for three of us in December, had awesome time and the instruction was great. The session was broken up into chunks, starting with being taught how to catch and ride a wave lying down on the board and then about an hours worth of practice, followed by further land based instruction on how to...

I found out a couple of months ago about a project run by Surf Steps for children and teens with mental health problems: The Wave Project. It's a six week course run by both professionals and volunteers. The transport, equipment and the whole course are absolutely free. My last session is in two days and I've enjoyed it immensely!
