Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jon was a fantastic and thoughtful teacher. He kept in touch and we went to the best and safest beaches.
He was able to loan equipment. Fantastic surfing in Northumberland.

This is my 3rd time with Northside Surf School, and I LOVE IT! I make the journey up from Yorkshire every year!
Jon is incredible. He's really fun, skillful, a fantastic teacher & is so encouraging.
All of Northside Surf School's equipment is some of the highest quality I've seen. And I always feel incredibly safe and in good hands.

I can't recommend Jon & his team/business enough. Such fantastic fun & I can nearly stand up on the board, catching actual waves! Which, I never thought I'd ever get to do!

Thank you for all your help and awesomeness! Go and have an amazing time with Northside Surf School!

We had always discussed trying paddle boarding and decided to give it a go whilst on Holiday in the northeast. We came across north side by chance and honestly had the most amazing experience.

After a quick 20 min health and safety chat we had a good couple of hours out on the river croquet going up from Amble to Walkworth and back down, giving you a great view of Walkworth castle. The staff were incredibly friendly and were more than willing to spend time with more nervous members assisting them to have a go at standing paddle boarding.

All equipment was provided including wetsuits which was great for newbies. The clubhouse where you meet is in a great area between Amble and Walkworth only a 5min walk to the main town centre of Amble, and has all the facilities you’ll need from changing rooms, showers, toilet facilities and car parking.

Look no further than "Northside Surf" if you're after a well organised and sensibly priced Surf School !!
In the space of 2 x 2 hour lessons, my granddaughters ( 9 & 7 year olds) went from very shy absolute beginners to actually being able to stand up on their boards! This was entirely due to the excellent tuition that they and the rest of the class (Total 6 ) received from John and his fellow Instructor, Amber!
The added bonus was that good quality wetsuits and boards were all part of the package.
We will definitely be signing up again next year! Many thanks!!

Had an amazing time with Jon when we booked to do a surfing lesson with him! There was a big group of us but Jon still made the effort to come round and help us all in the sea and made sure we were all doing the right techniques. Really enjoyed the lesson and would definitely do it again!

We took part in a beginners group lesson at Bamburgh with Jon and Amber. Both were excellent instructors and made us feel very welcome and safe. Also can’t beat surfing in front of Bamburgh castle. Would highly recommend!
