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

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
