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

Groupon vouchers In a large group but 3 instructors, good length of time in the water, Good equipment but take reef shoes if you don't like to go bare footed. Instructor very good and was constantly going around his group in the water helping their technique

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!!!!

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
