We have been coming Raven surf school for 3 years. Our boys have progressed in their surfing. All the instructors are great, each has their own style. Felt like I got good tips from all of them. All the wet suits are new and good quality. We surf in April and you never get cold in the water. Excellent all... More

Had a lesson with Stell. He was really good. Patient, relaxed and good advice. Board and wetsuit were of good quality too. Highly recommended.

Hi just had two lessons from Mike at Widemouth Bay and delighted by the package on offer. First Mike is a double European Surf Champ no mean feat. Second, he can teach which is not always a given with the talented. Third the kit used is new clean and warm. How does it work? Book by phone and turn up... More

Last Tueaday, soon after the ferocious storms that battered the UK I booked myself a one on one lesson with Raven. For two hours I battled with the elements, it was a tad rough, but I had an amazing time and despite the conditions felt safe at all times and the lesson itself was clear and informative. Plus it was... More

We found Mike very easy going and above all an excellent instructor, making our first surf lesson an absolutely fabulous experience. My wife and I had one lessons and our boys (9 & 11) had two lessons. We'll definitely come back...

The Surf school responded quickly to my initial enquiries via e-mail. Mike Raven was a nice chap and Brynn was a fantastic instructor. Both my children and I enjoyed our experience. When my son could not make a lesson, they were more than happy to reschedule an extra lesson for my daughter, to her great delight. Would recommend them wholeheartedly!

I had never even picked up a surfboard before I had lessons with Raven Surf School and by the end of my second lesson I was standing up nearly every time. It is a very well run school with a real friendly atmosphere. The instructors are fantastic, really knowledgeable and care about you improving. Even if you are not local... More

Picked Raven Surf School after reading the reviews on here and am really happy that I did. Neither my wife or myself had ever surfed and the instruction we received and the manner it was done was fantastic. We had a wonderful time, were both standing up (Which, probably being older than most beginers, we thought unlikely beforehand) and will... More
