My two daughters (10 and 13) have done a few surf lessons before, but nothing compares to Smart Surf School. They did two lessons - one with Sam and one with Aaron, plus they rented boards to do it independently another day, and it was amazing to watch them progress. The school is brilliant in terms of teaching technique, but it goes far beyond this - the lessons were about resilience, gratitude and making a positive contribution to the world. If only normal school was like that! Sennen Cove is a stunning location, with great conditions for beginners and more experienced surfers. The team are all exceptionally lovely too. We can't wait to come back - my husband joined into the final lesson so next time it's my turn!

Wooooooheeeeee! We just spent half term in Cornwall...(our favourite location), we have 12 year old twins who have never surfed before......we had the best week as we had booked them on the surf school for the week. Hollie and Sam made the week for all of us, their full on love and complete enthusiasm and professionalism and skill for surfing shines through and our two absolutely loved it! They are encouraging and made the experience so special! Thanks guys, we will be back!

A friend and I travelled over to Isle of Wight in early September. Eddie provided us with an excellent surfing lesson, helping us to improve our surf skills and develop confidence over the course of our session. Compton Bay is a long, narrow stretch of coastline, backed by lower sandy cliffs with the larger white cliffs at a distance further north as a backdrop. It's a beautiful setting to catch some surf and then to catch your breath in the sunshine, taking in the scenery, as you wait for some more waves. Eddie had such a fun and relaxed teaching style, with the skills set and experience to help us learn and progress. Really impressed and highlight of the weekend! Thank you. Chris

My partner and I had an awesome beginners lesson with Smart Surf. Neither of us had surfed before, but by the end of the lesson we were catching the waves and feeling pretty gnarly 🤟🏻Sam was an incredible teacher and his teaching style was both engaging and effective. We really felt that they went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. Would 10/10 recommend, wish we had the time to squeeze another lesson in before we leave.
