7 ladies paddle boarding on the Padstow estuary with Aaron. 6 of us paddle board virgins!!! Aaron was professional, knowledgeable and extremely patient. Always Positive and encouraging. Warm Winter wetsuits, buoyancy aids and all equipment was as new. We had the perfect weather and all managed to stand up without any mishaps. Looking forward to seeing the footage that Aaron took of our annual girls weekend. Coast Steering next year.

I booked this on behalf of my auntie and my girlfriend. The booking process was very easy. I watched from above on the public footpath and was able to take pictures and videos. Aaron was the man in charge. My girlfriend said he was lovely and went out of his way to help and very informative. Very enjoyable coasteering and made better by so few participants. Thank you Aaron. You made Elena’s birthday present very special.

Hard work but great fun. This is the second time we’ve used Harlyn surf school,a couple of years apart, so needed a refresher. Only 2 of us so had plenty of time and attention from Megan. She was friendly, knowledgable, always encouraging and positive, the time flew by but finally managed to stand. Will definitely continue to practice and have further refreshers from Harlyn in the future. Thanks Guys
