I would recommend these guys any day over the others. We had a lesson on fistral beach before going to these guys and the group had 30 people - 4 instructors. This meant very little tuition time, later that day we went to crantock beach and booked a lesson with the big green surf school. This time there was 1... More

Dale is an excellent instructor and we both managed to stand up on the boards by the end of the 2 hour session. Really good fun and would definitely return.

My 17 year old son and I had a week of lessons from Big Green. I can't rate them highly enough! They are some of the most helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and great bunch of guys and gals that I have had the pleasure of meeting. It was our first time surfing and they let us develop at our own rate... More

Visited last month as an experienced surfer. Did a lesson purely because of my mates doing one for the first time, after lack of time/enthusiasm to be in the water much over the last couple of years Dale and the team have got me back on track! Great for all levels of surfers

The team were really friendly and positive. Families well looked after and children nicely encouraged. No macho attitude. Thanks for a great time.

A relaxing and fun couple of hours with Big Green Surf School going up the Gannel with the tide, learning tricks and playing games (and a bit of getting wet!) before drifting back, again with the tide. Our family group was one adult and children aged 16 and 9 and we all loved it.

We opted to have a surf lesson on this year's holiday as my youngest daughter was desperate for a lesson. We tried to put her off but after a week she was still asking us when her lesson was so we had to take the plunge (literally) and book one! We chose the Big Green Surf School as it was... More

We're so stoked that Matilda's persistence paid off and got you all in the waves! You all did so well and were an absolute pleasure to teach. Already looking forward to next year, let's hope we get the same amazing weather haha ;-) More
