I had two group lessons at Fistral Beach and both were awesome. I especially enjoyed the lesson with Tariq, he gave me lots of confidence and helped me get my technique right so I could stand up on the board and properly surf! Everyone was really friendly. Thanks guys :)

Our teenagers had a fabulous surfing lesson and our son even stood up on his board and surfed the waves, it was great to have the instructor to the three of them but worth the money and we will definately be back

All equipment and showers included in price. The surf school staff were so friendly and welcoming and were just as enthusiastic about us learning to surf as we were. One... More

Booked a private lesson with them, very helpful from enquiry to booking! Instructor ready and waiting when I arrived. Very knowledgeable and supportive during lesson and advised of best time time practice after the lesson. Good changing facilities where I was able to leave big all day, they even locked my car key away safe for me during the day!... More

Had a great time learning to surf. A 2 hour lesson with Ceci who did a great job in explaining how to surf. Well organised and great value for money. Plus you get a discount on further hire of wetsuits and boards. Well worth a visit.

spend a couple of hours doing something you thought you couldn't. the coaches explained how to ride the surf boards and then let you out to try, but were always close by to help. the whole beach complex was self contained and reasonably priced, with the town close by for a little more retail therapy. This is good for a... More

He was very funny and made us all feel good and not worried. After short walk to the south part of the beach, Liam talked us through some basics and then... More

Nothing was too much trouble and I instantly felt that we were in safe hands. On arrival we were greeted by all staff with a friendly hello and smile. Then our... More
