What a fantastic location and an amazing surf school. I took 95 (yes, 95!) 9 year olds for surfing lessons - and it was Awsome. The staff were patient, knowledgeable and great fun. Their enthusiasm was infectious and the children loved it. It was such a brilliant experience for them and hopefully the start of a life-long love of surfing!... More

Husband and daughter had a great time thank you. Instructor was enthusiastic and generous with his time and encouragement. Waves were small; exactly what these first timers needed. Wish we lived closer as we would be back again and again and again.

Both groups were begging to go back and asked me to book for the following year in the minibus on the way bak to school. Friendly, patient instructors who interacted well with the students, a risk assessment given to the school from Dave... More

Well not quite...but as close as you will get in the UK, fantastic sandy beach, loads of activities and the crew at Joss Bay Surf School are fantastic. They were very Professional and safety conscious while ensuring everyone had fun and learning at their own pace. A great advert for Great British holidays.

The lessons are clear & concise but most of all fun. I was very fearful of the water and the safety aspect at first but they explained all... More

Lovely sandy beach, everything you need to stay all day. The surf school hires out kayaks, surf boards and wet suits, even a novice like me can have a go, knowing the lifeguards are keeping a watchful eye out just in case. I don't go to the beach often, but this one has to be one of the best.

The crew are super friendly, and very good at what they do! Booking was a breeze. Nice weather helped too! Perfect day out for all the family with the best beach in Thanet! The wheels and fins festival in the summer is also amazing!!
