Highly recommend these guys to everyone. I had a great time trying different activities at Harlyn Surf School starting with a coasteering experience followed by three surf lessons and one in standup paddelboarding. I enjoyed every single minute at Harlyn. The staff is great, all are friendly, helpful and have a very professional attitude. Special thanks to Jakob who was... More

Couldn't surf for toffee but had a brilliant time trying. Whole family of first timers catered for together in one group (60 years down to 6 year old) which made it more enjoyable. The time flew by, the instructor very patient and particularly watchful and helpful to my 6 year old -without dong everything for him. Really worth having a... More

Our two 16 year olds and two 14 year olds had a weeks surf school with Ollie - they loved it. We took a couple of lessons and had different teachers each time - they were all really good particularly the yoga teacher whose name I can't remember. The school is well organised, equipment good, wetsuits new and not manky!... More

Had a lovely few days courtesy of Harlyn Surf School. We participated in the coasteering and had a great time. So much so, that we also booked a surf lesson and also hired Kayaks. The centre staff were friendly and very knowledgable. Thank you

Twelve of us including six children aged 6-10 booked this way back in the winter and have been looking forward to it. We were not disappointed. From the start we were made welcome even though it was busy. The school were helping a large group of children from Chernobyl but we still had the individual attention of Jacob, Emma and... More

Coasteered last year and surfed this year. Great staff, great tuition, great experience in a fantastic location. Only frustration is that the phone is never answered. Got back to us by email but have been with OA and Rock Tors and they always have someone answering the phone during the busy summer months.

It was fun and exciting, the instructor was good (and cool). Overall the kids say 4 as there is always room for improvement however they are unable to say how!

One word; Awesome. A truly fantastic day made even better by the staff at the Harlyn Surf School. 25 quid and 1 hour later, my 5 year old daughter could not stop smiling or talking about it on the journey back home. Big thumbs up to Barney her instructor, had her standing up in about 20 minuets in her first... More
