All the other companies tell you £40 minimum pp because of insurance?
Family deal for four for three great hours of coastline adventure was £130. We went with two great guides and two families of mixed ages. All you need is a sense of fun and to be a competent swimmer. The rest is perfect family time. Rock climbing and jumps, whirlpools, private caves and 'secret' pools and beaches. Thank you. Late October and we did not feel the cold at all.

Thank Leigh M

Took the company on a bit of a bonding surf lesson! Two hours of great fun and we even stood up! Beautiful location, great coaches and awesome fun! Highly recommend it!

An excellent two day stag adventure experience SUPING, COASTEERING, KAYAKING and above all just having Fun.

We had a mix group of abilities and interests in our 22 man party, so having the choice of activities and the scope to cater for our group was such a relief. As an avid watersports person it is worth mentioning they have a FAB range of quality equipment that wasn't at all beaten up even though it was at the end of the season. The wetsuits looked brand new!

We opted to Stand Up Paddle Board and Kayak on the first day from their Camel Estuary base in Padstow and Coasteered from Harlyn beach the following day. Both locations are fantastically safe, brilliant for photographs, stunning scenery and really easy to getting to from our accommodation. The instructors hit the right balance between instructing and guiding + you can pay and get the whole experienced filmed properly. We had an awesome time even thought the wind howled on the last day. There was nothing better than seeing people who didn't know one another good friends at the end.. Makes for a great wedding.

I had a lesson on my final day of harlyn :( , it was a good lesson however I found that surfing doesn't happen within just 1 lesson. The instructors were fab, they were friendly and helpful, and despite having to help the whole group they still helped individuals who couldn't grasp it, I was in fact one of them people. they made our last day a good day and taught me how to come back to shore on a board just not standing x

As a complete beginner to surfing, with some specific problems I needed to work out, I booked a lesson.I was really impressed with the professionalism displayed and the knowledge of the local breaks was really very good. I learnt some really good lessons and I've no doubt that what I learnt will benefit my surfing for years to come.
