“Kids surf lessons”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

My two sons 10 and 14 had 2 lessons and they were the highlight of their holiday thanks.
Communication with the school before the lessons was excellent.
Finding the school was easy with parking opposite.
Both coaches were friendly and brilliant with the children, they can't wait to go again.
Again thanks for a great time.

“Highlight of our holiday!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We couldn't have had a better first surf experience. Our instructor Dale was an awesome teacher and got us standing up in the first lesson! The surf school is based right opposite the famous Fistral Beach, so perfect location and wetsuit and board hire is included. I would highly recommend this place for beginners and I know they do more advanced lessons too, so either way give them a shout!

“Big Green Surf School”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I am one of the most clumsiest people you will ever meet, I can fall over sitting down, and by the end of the Surf lesson, Dale had managed to get me to stand up and surf! He is very patient, and certainly knows the subject of surfing. Not just teaching how to surf, but slowing it down showing it in detail, and explaining why you need to do each specific step, therefore teaching us the something similar to theory. I learned a lot, and there was definitely teamwork within the group. I would definielty try and surf again! I would highly recommend this surfing school to anyone who wants to surf!
