got a one-one surfing lesson as a birthday present - fantastic couple hours in the sea, excellent tuition from Jon, full of handy tips, friendly, laid back, good crack. Had Drudirge Bay all to ourselves - misty rainy day but the sea was lovely and warm in all the gear - perfect.

“Best fun you can have with your clothes off ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

... and a wetsuit on. My friend and our kids had a surf lesson and session with Northside Surf, for the second year running. Surfing in the North sea in late autumn doesn't automatically sound like fun, but it was brilliant. Can't recommend Northside Surf highly enough. John is very skilled and professional, so you feel very safe. He also couldn't make it more enjoyable. And this year I managed to stand up. Yo!!!

“Thanks to Northside Surf School”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Me and 3 other 40-somethings booked a bodyboarding lession and we are all still buzzing about it now and planning our next session. The value for money is superb, Jon is a friendly, encouraging person and what a superb location to do it! If you want fun and learn skills, go with Northside.

“So good I keep on going”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I have surfed at a few different surf schools but northside surf school has to be the best by far. Jon is a great teacher who makes you have fun and still feel safe. This is the perfect place for surfers of any level. The price is excellent for the quality of the service and I am looking forward to the next time I can go. If you get the opportunity, take it and ride that wave !!!!!
