Had a two hour surf lesson for myself and two teenage daughters today. We just turned up and we’re lucky they had space. None of us had had ever surfed before, all the gear was included in the cost. Two really nice blokes took the session and were great with me and the kids. We were all standing up by the end and had a great time. Putsborough is a beautiful location anyway, obvs, but the guys were great and seemed genuinely interested in us enjoying ourselves. We paid £35 each, which I thought was great value for two hours with all the gear provided and two people helping us. Five stars.

Had a SUP lesson and it was fantastic! Dave our instructor was great, really friendly and made us feel comfortable and safe. My boyfriend hadn’t been looking forward to it but ended up absolutely loving it! We were both standing up by the end of the session.
