“Fantastic surf school and brill instructors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We were all four of us beginners and all four a little bit scared we would be rubbish. The guys at the school put us at ease and Tom, our instructor for the morning, gave us a good training session before letting us loose in the surf. All I can say is, we were rubbish! But omg it was so much fun. I almost got up on my board ( prob just need a little bit of practice) and so did my friends. I got awful cramp at one stage and with a wave in the air Tom helped me back to the beach. Excellent day had by all and I can highly recommend. To use Tom's saying of the day.... We were stoked to be there, like, TOTALLY stoked man!!!!

“Nicest Little SurfShop in Newquay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

It is not too good to be true. Friendly, convenient, and a mellow surf spot right on the shore. The owner, employees, and even some of the locals were welcoming as I rented my gear and "foamy." While I was hesitant about renting a soft-top board, it ended up being one of the best days traveling in England. I have rented from shops where the employees are "too cool" making the customer feel uncomfortable. Not here. The attitude around the shop was both warm and easy-going, setting the stage for a pleasant surf day.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I visted Newquay Surfing School last year, & cant wait to go back. They were absoloutely fantastic in every way. I was a bit hesitant about trying surfing, although its something I have always wanted to do since I have been visting Cornwall for many years, I was a bit unsure of whether I could do it or not. After some geat teaching, myself and my wife went into the water to give it a go! With some helpful tips, I managed to start catching some waves, albeit, mainly falling off!! We had a geat time & went back the following day to have another go! These guys really are superb, helpful, and the most laid back & friendly people you would wish to meet. I am going back this year to have another go as I enjoyed it immensly. Thanks Guys & see you soon!!
