We were a group of 5 girls of mixed ages and fitness. The Harlyn team couldn't have been nicer! From checking us in, getting our wetsuits and safety gear sorted to the guys who took us out for the trip. They really made us feel comfortable. Such friendly people, obviously really happy in what they do and keen to share... More

Bought my partner a red letter day for Xmas 2012. Unfortunately the first time we visited in July 2013 there was no surf so they have us a voucher to return within a year. Went back today for our surf lesson and I was a bit apprehensive. However it was a really brilliant experience. The instructors are helpful and really... More

As a complete beginner to surfing, I didn't know what to expect. There were just 3 of us on the lesson I attended, so I got lots of attention from the instructor, Emma, who was brilliant! She was careful to see what my weaknesses were, and worked with me to improve, and eventually get me standing (just about!) on the... More

When the surf died down in the afternoon they were happy to suggest other activities and we ended up have a great time paddle boarding as... More

We visited as a family in May and had an excellent experience. From the first phone call and for both days that we used Harlyn Surf School we had a fantastic staff experience. We used others as well in Cornwall but this was the best for hiring gear and for lessons, the bay is beautiful.

My husband had a 2 hour one to one surfing lesson which I booked for him as a present. He really enjoyed it and said the instructor was very good. He would definitely go back for another go and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to surf.

We went as a group of 13 girls on a hen party and it was the best activity ever. The guys supervsing the tour are fab, really friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiatic. It was brilliant fun, the perfect mix of jumping off challenging cliff faces and meandering through little rock alleys and caves. The perfect hangover cure and would highly recommend... More
