We had two lessons with Suds and he gave us both really helpful advice. The conditions were pretty flat but we still got some fun waves and our lessons were extended to 3 hours which was great. Definitely recommend. Thanks Suds! We'll be back soon!

We had a great time with Suds at Sandend, lessons could be arranged around our timetable; and the tides obviously... and the quality of the teaching and hire equipment was excellent, will be back again.

We booked for our 3 children and they were out getting lessons all afternoon. They came back pretty cold but it was the highlight of the holiday. The two instructors could not have been more helpful and friendly
