I did 5 days on my own then 3 days with my wife last month - the teachers Tim, Jamie, Dan & Pat were all excellent - very encouraging and very knowledgeable and very friendly. Tim is probably one of the most knowledgeable people in the world about all aspects of surfing and a super nice guy as well -... More

Second time here for me. I 've surfed for a while but don't get in the water as often as I'd like so it's great for me to get some coaching and tips. They always manage to give individual attention for different levels of ability. Really nice conditions this time around. I had been following a training schedule that Tim... More

Tim has phenomenal knowledge of his sport in every aspect and he is committed to building it as one for pros and amateurs alike. We came for a course in Feb 2015, unwittingly during the worst winter of storms to hit the island in 20 years (check the forecasts before you go!). So the usual currents and rips as well... More

This is THE surf school if you want to learn to surf, or improve your skills in surfing. The teaching is second to none and the instructor to pupil ratio is excellent and the instructors are trained, certificated life guards too, which is very reassuring. Catering for all ages, you will not only learn to surf, but also learn about... More
