Excellent surf lesson for a group of kids between age 7 - 12. All the instructors were fantastic with the group. The kids all loved the lesson and all were desperate to get back into the sea again the following day despite it being October. This was our second time booking with Surfing Croyde Bay and they have been fantastic on both occasions. Thanks Surfing Croyde Bay!

Great fun coasteering. Sea was a quite rough so it was quite difficult at points but no one died :-) Quite a few jumps but you can opt out of these I walk round or do a smaller jump. A couple of caves. Bring some old trainers. Wet-suit, buoyancy aid, and helmet provided. Matt was a good guide. Recommended.

Great instructors, really knowledgeable and supportive even for first time surfers. Went twice in the week as enjoyed the experience that much. Provided everything you need, great friendly instructors who take time to show you and don’t make you feel pressured. It was really great fun will definitely do this again when I am in the area. Can’t rate this highly enough, definitely something to try if your in the area.

A weekend of surf lessons for a mixed ability and age group. The ‘book 3 lessons over a weekend’ deal was good value. As advertised the student/ instructor ratio never exceeded 6:1. Great location on the Freshwell camping site right at the North side of the bay and just 3 minutes or so walk from the sand. Conveniently located next door to the Ocean Pitch camp site where we stayed and a choice of parking options nearby. Damon the owner was always helpful when communicating by phone. Originally scheduled for April the trip was understandably postponed due the COVID situation, but arranging a credit and rebooking was smoothly handled and no issue at all. The two instructors for the weekend Harvey and Ben were clearly knowledgeable and took us all through the initial stages of learning to surf. Everyone enjoyed the thrill of catching their first waves or building on their existing experience. We joined the standard group which was up to 12 people (with 2 instructors) which was a great introduction to the sport. As we progress probably paying for a private group or even one to one tuition would give the instructor more time to focus on your own personal goals, but for our current level and as an introduction the group session worked fine. Really has a great time! For this middle aged guy who’s waited 20 years to learn to surf it was everything he hoped it would be, and everyone in our group of adults and teenagers had a great time. We’ll definitely be back for lessons 4 and beyond and board hire. Thanks Damon and team
