Growing up in Trebetherick, I first used Surf's Up back in the 90's when the Craske family set it up. Back then it was super friendly and great fun, and those instructors got me up and going and into my surfing. Fast forward to the last few years, and my husband and stepson have both found a love of surfing... More

My husband and I had never been surfing before and signed up for a lesson here after hearing great reviews. We were there during a slow time so we ended up being the only two in the lesson. Our instructor was great and had patience with our slow learning. It was a lot of fun even though we were terrible.... More

...and we have tried our hand at many activities! We were booked on a beginners session on a rather fresh October morning, although with the wetsuits provided and adrenaline pumping we weren't put off by the weather and didn't feel the cold at all. We had the perfect conditions for surfing and the best instructor! Unfortunately we can't remember his... More

The instructors were friendly and fun, they have an array of boards for use from beginners to the more advanced, and they have a wonderful decking overlooking the beach to sign in and get changed on. I'd go back any day.

I was quite reluctant to try surfing at 52 but it was my daughters birthday so I agreed. Waylan was out instructor and he was fantastic, he made the lesson fun and by the end of my first ever lesson I was stood up riding the waves. I only wish I had tried it before, I will be coming back... More

9 year old granddaughter loved bodyboarding but with a little persuasion tried out a beginners 2 hour group surfing session with two coaches. It was extremely well run. Coaches communicated well with their students. Lots of fun and serious messages handled with care and encouragement. By the end of the session was comfortably standing up on her board surfing the...

Surf's up is the original surf school at Polzeath, and is still by far the best. The instructors are young, friendly and very helpful. My two grandsons had a great time, and both got to stand up on their first lesson. You can also get really good photos from their photographer. Highly recommended.

We booked this school for a 2 hour beginner's lesson for our daughter and it was money well spent. The staff were really good with children and by the end of the 2 hours she could stand and surf. She said it was the best experience of her summer holiday.

the friendly staff and skilled tuition is highly recommended. They trade from premises above the Galleon Café and a van in the car park.
