My teenage children have been twice this week. Gentle surf on the first day (Wednesday) to heavy seas today. The course was for nearly two hours which was plenty of time to get a great experience. On both occasions they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Stell was the instructor and had a very strong focus on making sure they were safe... More

Difficult to put into words how much fun we had but we were smiling from start to finish. Stell was fantastic, a great balance of professional, engaging and enthusiastic. Can't come back soon enough, if you get the chance then go and if you don't, then make the chance to go!

Great intro to surfing this morning with Tully, all loved it and learnt loads! Thankyou for being so patient and looks out for us in quite challenging conditions. Great equipment, top teaching. Thoroughly recommended. Nicci, Andy, Jordan, Mal, Chris and Kerry.

My friends and I had a great surfing lesson with our instructor Stell in Widemouth bay. It was a really professional set up. Stell was really friendly and made the class fun whilst making sure we learnt the basics. The lesson format was well structured and he provided great coaching and support to each of us. Would definitely recommend this... More

We booked last minute and were delighted that a lesson was put on for just for the two of us. The price was very reasonable considering two hours of great tuition and the hire of the board, wetsuit, boots gloves and hat. Superb value for money! Stel was a superb teacher, both full of encouragement but equally keen to push... More

We had our first ever surf lesson yesterday and the professional and friendly staff put us at ease immediately. Mixed ages and skills all handled brilliantly by our encouraging tutors. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great way to spend two hours!

We had doubts learning to surf in early April in Cornwall, but after a lesson with Stel I would go any time of the year. The lesson was perfect and we are totally hooked. No criticism except I wish they were closer to us so that we could go every week. Highly recommended to learn a great outdoor activity.

We had 2 lessons on the Wednesday and Friday with Stell. Having 2 lessons defiantly helped as we are much more confident! Stell was a brilliant teacher and a good laugh (despite eating my sweets!). It was by far the best surfing experience we have had and will be back soon! We would defiantly recommend it to any level. Thank... More

Had a great morning lesson with Stell. Relaxed, but organised and professional enough to be reassuring, we were standing up at the end!
