We bought this adventure on a Groupon deal and I have to be honest it was money well spent. The instructors were brilliant! Good fun, encouraging and friendly. We didn't feel awkward or stupid at any point - even though we spent more time falling off the board than we did actually riding any waves. It's surprising how much hard... More

A few weeks ago I emailed to confirm my booking, as i'd forgotten, and again received a reply straight away. Received reminder emails... More

We were bought 2, 90 mins lessons in May. We booked a day in advance and everything was fine. On the day we were on route, (It is not local to us) and our lesson was cancelled due to the weather. That was annoying but I understood. We were told we could re-book a full day in the summer sometime... More

What an amazing 90 minutes! The weather was fabulous, the waves were the perfect learning height, and our instructor (Steve) had the best attitude and chatter! The groups were split into kids and adults, and it was nice learning to surf the waves with other novices like me. I'll definitely be using the voucher that we were given to hire... More

What a brilliant day! Great staff very welcoming - Steve, our tutor, was brilliant and had a great sense of humour. He really helped the youngest member of the group who was struggling against the 2ft waves. Time flew but it was well worth it. We will be going again!!!!

Bought a voucher for my nephew for Christmas, as he did not know what he wanted. Even at 48 years old I decided why not and booked myself in as well ! So today we arrived at the venue, to be greeted by friendly and professional people. With surf boards and wet suits supplied we started our lesson. This was... More
