big disappointment... our surfing instructor - I think called Paul - was arrogant and unkind. We were so looking forward to the day which was a birthday celebration.

As a non-Uk resident, I found the booking and payment process with the Gower Surfing School chaotic. I booked a 2hr lesson with my daughter which was actually delivered by another company. Booking through them directly would have saved £70. The teacher, Vinnie, was great.
