Rude reception on arrival "You are late !" we were 5 mins as there was no where to park and no instructions given as to how to find the place with no signs ! You should limit the size of the group so more personal instruction could be given to complete novices - the currents and waves were quite difficult, Oh and some changing facilities please ! Are we really supposed to change out of wet suites at the back of the shack in public view ? Cannot recommend. For 30 quid each felt let down. Gave feedback on an email , no response obviously not that bothered.

I work for Newcastle University, and arranged two large group bookings with Longsands Surf School this week, so that some of our students could have a fun day of surfing before their exams. Barry and the team were absolutely fantastic - quick communication, fantastic prices, quality equipment (wetsuit, boots and boards) and really friendly staff. All 40 students had an amazing time and loads of them managed to stand on the board despite being beginners. Thank you Longsands Surf School for a fab couple of days :)

I tried multiple times to ring Longsands to enquire about board hire and after 6 attempts finally got through to the rudest ‘can you stop ringing us please’ answer! My phone was set to No caller ID for volunteering at a foodbank ( so I didn’t get calls from those I delivered to) which I forgot to take off, however regardless of this I was genuinely enquiring about board hire. Despite them not knowing who was ringing, it felt very unprofessional to not even be met with a hello longsands surf school how can we help, and as a result I will not be giving them my business. What a let down.

This weekend we came to Longsands to have a surf lesson. The school is situated at the bottom of the stairs near the old outdoor pool. They have loads of quality gear and our children were fitted out in no time. Once the small group of four was ready we all went to the waters edge to learn the ropes on the sand before practicing them on the water. The guide (Matt I think, sorry mind like a sieve with names!) was great with the children and took great care of them. They had a great time and were all smiles even when repeatedly falling off. Thanks for the great afternoon.

Our 11 year old grandson thought that the introductory lesson for children was excellent and great fun. He rated the instructor as 8 or 9 out of 10 as a teacher, which is high praise, and he looks forward to having another session. Great value!
