“Excellent, we all loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We had a family lesson (children aged 6-10) and it was a huge success. The instructor was very patient with us all and made sure all the children had stood up at least once by the end of the lesson. We didn't notice the cold, wind and rain until the end of the lesson - proof that we were all having lots of fun. We all have the bug and would love to do it again on our next holiday.

“Great Surfing Lessons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

My son and I had two lessons last week. The instruction was first class and the staff were very friendly. The surfing was great and the weather not cold at all for October. Will definately be back next time we are in Newquay. Would recommend to all ages.

“Old Guys Surfing Rules”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

My husband Alan & I are in our late 40's and thought we would have a go at surfing, for the first time, whilst in Newquay.
The whole experience was unforgettable, the weather was good for October, Fistral Beach Surf School staff couldn't have been more helpful. The instructor was extremely patient considering he had two complete novices and he made the time we had very enjoyable and we can't wait to go back and try again. (This time we might stand up!).
Don't think, you are too old or too unfit to have a go. Just give it a try.
