Even though we are from North Devon and my husband had always wanted to try surfing we have never got around to it. This year whilst on holiday with his brother who had used the Big Green Surf School last year, we decided to book them both in. The lesson is well constructed with an introduction into surfing on the beach before heading out into the water. My husband isn't the fittest 30 something and found it physically exhausting and a couple of times didn't have the strength to continue but with adrenaline was so glad that he completed the full lesson. He was buzzing for days about the lesson and we are looking into booking lessons closer to where we live.

My family all did a 2 hour paddleboarding session. It was 6.45a.m, cold and pouring with rain when we turned up and I was not looking forward to it. But I'm so glad I did it! It was great fun, and our instructor Peter could not have been friendlier or more encouraging. He was so chilled he made it a great experience. My teenage daughter and her friend also loved it. It was a beautiful place to paddleboard. We will definitely return next year, when hopefully the sun will be shining!

Me and my friend did the kayaking session with Phill. The day was rainy and gloomy but we had a wonderful session regardless. He took us to different sides of the coastline, little caves and cracks between the cliffs and gullies we had loads of fun on. 100% would recommend.
