Amazing experience!! Teaching was well supportive and so worth the money they are asking for. Also, not only did I manage to stand up on the board during the first teaching lesson but also realised how much fun surfing is!! I am already planning when to get my next surfing lesson with them...

It is not an unusual thing for people to stand in their first lesson with us. Actually most people that learn to surf with us stand during their 1st lesson. Any future surfing lessons are aimed at getting customers more consistent but we do this in a fun and friendly manner to make sure you get the most from our... More

Great lesson, equipment, and instructors! Instruction was well suited for my entire family from age 12 up to me. Although the waves were small the experience was huge!

The Surf school was recommended to me by some friends. I went there for a bit of refresher training from the guys before a surfing holiday to Morocco and I wasn’t disappointed I was back up on the board in no time. With their expert tuition and friendly patient approach to teaching you to surf, you can’t help but succeed... More

As a first time surfer it was difficult to know what to expect. The beach and surrounding area provide an incredible backdrop. To be given lessons from someone who's attentive and passionate as well as clearly very capable was uplifting - Unexpectedly so. The guy in charge was clearly born into the sport and had the 'surfer dude' charisma to... More

I could not recommend this surf school enough. The instructors were very friendly and full of positive energy. Everybody in my group managed to stand up in the first hour, as the coaches broke everything down and made thing easy to understand. I will defiantly be coming back in the summer!!
