My two children 13 and 11 absolutely loved the surf lesson and are already asking when we can come back for another lesson. Unfortunately I can’t remember their names but The lady and Portuguese instructor were absolutely fantastic and both of my kids came back thinking they’d learnt something new. We could not recommend enough!!!!

Me and my son booked two lots of surfing lessons during our weekend to Woolacombe. I can honestly say we totally enjoyed every minute. Our teacher Ollie was great and kept a good watch on everyone to make sure they were all safe and happy. One of my concerns being a slightly older first time surfer was getting too cold in the sea but the wetsuits provided kept me and my son warm and snug for our entire time in the sea. I can honestly say young of old give it a go, you may find your inner surfer. 🏄🏻‍♀️
