We recently spent a week in St Ives with my daughter and two grandsons [10 + 8] and booked the boys a surfing lesson each at St Ives Surf School on the Tuesday.
Neither of them had surfed before but they were immediately put at their ease by the very friendly reception they had from the instructors. They were properly kitted out and great attantion was paid to make sure that they were dressed properly.
The groups they were in were of a good size to ensure that they had proper instruction and they were professionally treated all through their lesson.
The younger of them wanted to come out after about an hour and one of the instructors came out with him to make sure he was OK. After a little rest, he was back in the water and was given all the encouragemnt he needed to get back into his lesson.
His elder brother took to it like a duck to water and enjoyed himself so much that he went back for another lesson on the Thursday; he has announced he wants to go back later in the year and has put in a request for his own board and wetsuit for his birthday!
The instructors gave them both great attention and never talked down to them despite their ages and lack of experience.
I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone whatever their level of expertise.
