Had a lesson and got to say the lad was very good (sorry but forgot his name) He had us all up and on the boards in about 40mins . And told us about the rip and where it's safe to surf. See you next year for a 2nd lesson.

We have been running a surfing activities week for the last 10 years at Redruth school and this was the best experience for the children so far. The instructors were very clear on safety and reasons for this from the beginning. They explained about rips, got the pupils to look for them and explained how they happened, what they could...

I originally learnt to surf last year with this surf school and immediately fell in love with surfing. I was up on my feet by the end of my first lesson and by the second, I was progressing to improve my technique.

I did my first surfing lesson ever today and the instructors Lucy and Blake were absolutely brilliant. I could not have asked for two more lovely, competent and enthusiastic people to help me catch the surf bug. I will definitely be back for more and recommend this team of instructors wholeheartedly. Thank you guys x

My partner and I had never surfed before! We had our first lesson and the instructor was very good! I managed to stand once that was all but that's more then what i thought I would achieve! They were very patient and we had a good laugh! Returning later this year!
