Harlyn Surf School is about as good as it gets, they looked after our group extremely well and were very good with the younger members. We have now used them several times and it is our intention to keep using them.

We visited Cornwall for our minimoon just after we got married as friends bought us a gift voucher for Harlyn Surf School. We decided to do a morning of Coasteering, I cant recommend this enough. Both instructors where fantastic and really friendly. The group was very well organised and it was so much fun and challenging.

All the other companies tell you £40 minimum pp because of insurance? Family deal for four for three great hours of coastline adventure was £130. We went with two great guides and two families of mixed ages. All you need is a sense of fun and to be a competent swimmer. The rest is perfect family time. Rock climbing and... More

We had a mix group of abilities and interests in our 22 man party, so having the choice of activities and the scope to cater for our group was such a relief. As an avid watersports person it is worth mentioning they have a... More

The instructors were fab, they were friendly and helpful, and despite having to help the whole group they still helped individuals who couldn't grasp it, I was... More

As a complete beginner to surfing, with some specific problems I needed to work out, I booked a lesson.I was really impressed with the professionalism displayed and the knowledge of the local breaks was really very good. I learnt some really good lessons and I've no doubt that what I learnt will benefit my surfing for years to come.

I had a great Coasteering lesson with Harlyn Surf School. The weather was not the best but this made the whole experience all the more exciting. The instructors; Barney, Tom and Aaron worked as a great team and really got the whole group involved from start to finish and we all felt completely safe the whole time. They even got... More
