I was a total beginner and John was a very good instructor; encouraging and extremely knowledgeable. Had a really great time and I definitely want to get back on a surfboard again soon. Would highly recommend northside surf school!

My 13yr old daughter and her friend had their first ever surf lesson with John yesterday and they loved it. I was worried about them being cold as it wasn’t the warmest day, but John had hoods and booties as well wetsuits and the girls said they were nice and warm. John was very patient and explained everything really clearly. I would thoroughly recommend doing this if you’re looking for something a bit different in the area.

We had a great surf lesson with John. Neither of us had surfed before and John was very knowledgeable and encouraging teacher. The waves for our original time slot weren't looking great but John was really flexible and rearranged to a more suitable time. Good quality equipment including wet suits that kept us warm even during an overcast day in early May. Couldn't recommend this highly enough, well worth a try for anyone visiting the area!

We rang on the morning to book a session and 2 hours later we were wetsuits up and paddling off the beach at Amble. Great session for adults and children. John was a good instructor and a great value session

My husband had a lesson for his birthday. He'd only ever tried surfing once before, many years ago, so would be classed as a beginner. John, the owner and instructor was friendly, patient and an excellent teacher. I'd definitely recommend using Northside Surf School and will be returning for more lessons in the future!
