Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing - just amazing. Windy and his team are super welcoming, professional and awesome. What a lesson for our kids - they absolutely loved it! Mimi was especially brilliant with her patience and encouragement - big thank you. We will be back!

2nd visit to Windy and Waves School. Our teenage kids absolutely loved everything about the whole experience. Highly recommended to anyone surfing at any level around the Newquay and surrounding beaches.

I would highly recommend using Waves Surf School. Windy, Bev and the team were great. They took the time to explain everything prior to entering the water, allowed you to progress at your own speed, but with encouragement pushed you to get better. I had children of various ages with me and they managed us all perfectly so I did not need to worry about them when in the water. The lesson was great value and I would not hesitate to use them again.

Windy and Bev were great at giving us instructions which beach to meet at. They were very organised and the boys learnt from there first lesson. Would highly recommend this surf school.

Just spent a fab morning watching my daughters and their friends (14yr, 15yrs, 16yrs, & 17yrs) have their first surf lesson with Bev from Waves Surf school. By the end of the full 2 1/2 hour session they were catching waves and standing up. A brilliant morning and we will be back next year. Thank you

My kids, aged 12 and 15, tried surfing in a group lesson with Waves and did amazingly well. It was lovely to see my son, who isn’t as sporty, standing on the board quite quickly and look like a natural! Windy texted the day before to confirm the exact time and beach which proves that, as they are mobile, they are able to choose where the most suitable waves/tide will be and when. We treated the kids to a second, private, lesson to bring them on a bit. Fantastic to have some more in depth tuition, and next time they will enjoy a group again. Just fantastic!
