Ricky and the guys at Alive Surf School are extremely friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional.
Would highly recommend this for a couple of hours of real fun - and I'm not fit or athletic !

As a fitness fanatic I love trying new activities. I'm not the most confident in the water so I thought surf lessons were the way to go. Both instructors Ricky and Barry made the two hour group lesson really fun, easy, manageable and made me feel totally secure in the water. They spent time with everyone in the group and allowed you to pick things up quickly. I would highly recommend this for a day out and feel you could learn a lot from alive surf school. Thanks again

My 9 year old daughter and I signed up for a 2 hour surf lesson (beginners) with Ricky, a very friendly guy. We had no idea what to expect. After we got our boards we went straight down to the beach where we had a good warm-up. Next Ricky put us through some basics and off we went for a first practice in the sea. Ricky hovered around to give everyone some good advice how to improve. He also took very good care of the wee ones in the group and made the lesson fun. Definitely going back!

My 9 year old son and his friend had a 2 hour surf lesson with RIcky, they had an absolute ball and couldn't get enough! We found RIcky to be super friendly and great with the kids making this a really great experience all round!
