Had a bloody brilliant time! Definitely recommend everyone to ask the instructors to SURF your boat as it’s so much fun! We had jack & James as our instructors they were both fab! Most definitely doing this again :)

We had a fantastic time! Booked indoor bodyboarding for 5 teenagers and they had a wonderful time. One dropped out and the staff were very helpful in allowing my niece to step in at short notice. She’s 10 and she loved every second. The reception...More
