This was the first time my teenagers had ever had a go at surfing. Easy to book, I used my tesco clubcard vouchers and the whole process was simple. The bay itself is easy to find with a big car park right next to the beach. The kids were kitted out with wetsuits and the lesson began. Being complete beginners... More

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
