Dale and his team take very small classes year round. This time of year best time to go. Great step by step tuition- easy to learn- not too much to take in. Dale really knows what he is talking about. First class wet suits nice and warm so no chill factor. Now have the surf bug!

Nice small groups where you can learn a lot quickly. Even if you do not have any experience you will stand on your board after one lesson.

Dale & Andy from the BGSS are brilliant teachers. I thought I'd stagnate and never get to turn on my surfboard, but they know how to coax you into progressing each time you go. Most of all, they watch you perform & tweak little bits here & there without making you feel like you're starting from scratch. I felt I... More

We visited the big green surf school with a group of Pupils at the start of September. The venue, equipment and surf lodge were absolutely great but what made it outstanding was the attuitude and knowledge of the coaches. Their enthusiasm was contagious and the speed that everyones surfing improved was truly outstanding.

I had an incredibly nice stay in Newquay! The team of the surfing school is very competent and has taught me within less hours very fast surfing. The groups are pleasantly small, so that one has much single training. Everybody is very friendly and cool. To recommend very much!

This was a seconds trip to New Quay and the second visit to the Big Green Surf School for my kids now aged 12 and 16. Again this was the highlight of the holiday, great tuition from teachers who really know how to connect with kids.
