Big Green Surf School is not only the best surf school in Newquay but, to me anyway, the whole of the UK (If you don't believe me then book a lesson and make up your own mind!) I have been surfing for around a year and a half and was looking to improve my skills. I hoped to learn the basics of turning and of course catching those beautiful green lines. Dale and his years of experience gave me confidence, excellent tuition and plenty of enthusiasm. The school is a stones throw away from Fistral Beach, has plenty of parking close by to choose from (two car parks and street parking mainly off season) and plenty of space to get out of those pesky wetsuits. Talking about wetsuits I am pretty picky having invested in a lovely Rip Curl steamer to keep me warm. I was concerned that I would feel the cold of the Atlantic through the schools wetsuits but I had nothing to worry about. Dale has ensured that the school only uses good quality wetsuits, C-Skins, which are also local to Cornwall. I was kept warm and cosy the whole time. All other equipment looked good, I brought my own board but the foamies didn't appear to have had any repairs and looked in great condition!
I had booked three 'Out Back' lessons and am so glad I did. Dale not only teaches you the techniques that will suit your style and ability but also important information like surf etiquette and how to stay safe whilst in the line up. These lessons are really important as some schools I observed didn't appear to teach their beginners what to do when you can't control your board or who has priority on the waves. Dale also supplies water, which was much needed and of course a big smile.
Did I mention how well he keeps in contact with you concerning your booking and any other information you require? Excellent, he certainly likes to create a good impression before you actually meet.
So look no further, Dale and Big Green Surf are the No 1 in Newquay for professional and friendly surf lessons. And don't forget to bring cakes!
