Great surf lessons and super instructors. We were compete beginners and had 3 surf lessons. Great tuition, I really didn't think I'd be able to do this but I did (almost) get to standing. We had lots of fun and were able to hire boards to practice what we'd learned.
We also used Nick Thorne for coasteering which was also a good experience. Instructors were very patient and encouraging and we had a great time.

My 13 year old son had 4 morning sessions - an excellent surf school. Staff were friendly and instructors were reassuring, encouraging and very experienced. Would recommend this surf school.

Had a great time in a morning lesson with Will as total newbie surfers. We found it completely knackering but had SO much fun.
