“Great fun!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We were a group of three, only one with a bit more experience in surfing, two of use with none. But Tom, our coach, explained things well and we really enjoy surfing that day. We also feel very safe since Tom explained basics of safety and he also observed us in the water. Despite a bit rainy day we had a really enjoyable day. Well done guys at Gower surfing school.

This was the first time I've ever surfed in my life. The staff was of an enormous help and with a few tips & tricks I soon rode my first wave! :D

“In my daughter's words: Epic!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We had a great 2-hour lesson. On time, expert teaching and really good fun. Will definitely be booking surfing with GSD now we have the surfing bug (that and the fact that my daughter stood on her board before me...She was made up) Huge thanks.

“Grower surfing school”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Had a great family half day at Caswell bay. James was a fabulous teacher , all staff were excellent, we felt very safe with our family in their hands and both of the boys were delighted to learn to stand on their boards. The organisation is excellent, easy to book, flexible service and loads of fun. Highly recommended.
