Hi Geraldine, what a great review. I will pass on your kind words to Sarah and we look forward to see you again. Kind regards, Mark
My two children 15 and 12 totally enjoyed the experience. We booked them both in for body boarding lesson 2.5 hours. Excellent value for money. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. The facilities superb. Will definitely visit again.
