Two weeks of summer surf camp at Harlyn Surf School and our children have really gained confidence and lots of new skills, together with new friends from far and wide. Thanks for another memorable Cornish beach holiday to Sarah, Christian, Tom, Aaron and the ever-patient Savannah - see you again next year!

Had a great afternoon learning to SUP. Instructors were friendly and told us what we needed to know. Very patient with those in the group that found parts of it tough. The lesson was around 2and a half hours. Which gave us enough time to manage to stand up and paddle. We were provided with good quality equipment including wetsuit,... More

We had a 2hr paddle boarding lesson on Sunday, and had the best time!! Chris was incredibly knowledgeable about paddleboarding and the local area, and an extremely patient teacher who took the time to ensure we got the best out of the lesson, and gave us the knowledge to be able to hire the boards in the future. The camel... More

My husband & I have just done our very first session with Emma. It was a really great experience, Emma was an excellent instructor. The sea was a bit rough today so we went to the River Camel which was much calmer & ideal for us, even though we had sun, rain & wind within our 2 hours. Would definitely... More

Had an experience voucher for my birthday at the end of last year. Finally got to use it. Paddle boarding on the Camel estuary with patient instructor and all equipment included. Brilliant fun and great views whilst paddling along. Would have been even better with opportunity to take the wetsuit on and off at the venue on something other than... More

This was the absolute highlight of my kids' holiday. They loved every minute of it and emerged at the clifftop absolutely buzzing. I got great photos from the clifftop - spectators have a great view of most parts of the experience.

My 4 teenagers did Coasteering last week and had the most amazing time!!!!! One was unsure but after speaking with an instructor a few days before decided that he felt comfortable enough to do it! On the day everyone was kitted up with safety equipment which was double checked by instructors, they had a big talk about what they were... More

Brought group of 13 to Padstow and decided to try our hand at surfing. Our hotel recommended Harlyn Surf School. Yes, surfing in April presents some challenges, but we had a great outing and everyone left tired and happy and most of us got up for at least two seconds. They could have been a bit more communicative about location... More
