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.

Wow! That was amazing. Dan was very knowledgeable. He knew the stretch of coastline intimately. We jumped off ledges, swam in swells, got sucked up into gullies and spat back into the sea and climbed up and over rocks. Exhilarating experience. 100% recommend and would love to do it again.

Brilliant lesson and help from Dan (booking) and Mark (surfing). Great services from both throughout and loved my 1st lesson and practice afterwards. What a beach that is and (despite the pretty rubbish waves on the day) perfect for learning with Marks zen master help. Thanks both.

Fantastic session with Rosie. I've always been frightened of waves, and at 52 yrs of age I though I'd better do something about it. All I can say was Rosie was brilliant, she took it step by step and at my pace, which is slow. By the end of the session, I was diving under waves, not worried about falling off, and yes, I actually managed to stand up right at the very end. It felt like a massive achievement and I'd highly recommend

Private surf lesson for 12, 14 & 42 year olds, brilliant experience and teaching. Simple to understand and lots of time in the water with clear guidance and direction. All of us managed to stand/surf by end of the session

Had a group lesson on a cloudy misty day. The waves were 1 to 2 foot high which was perfect for learning to surf. Our teenage boys and my husband can’t wait to repeat it they had a wonderful time. Rosie their instructor was brilliant, very helpful and encouraging. Looks like We will be going back today! Thank you.

We had a private lesson with Dan and it was fantastic! Great fun and we got standing up really quickly. It is a steep walk in and there are no loos but a great beach and great fun! Thank you Dan and team. Molly and George

Thanks Molly and George, you both crushed it. Don’t forget the cliff top cafe has a customer toilet and delicious lunches for before or after your surf! Hopefully see you soon!

Great tuition and Dan and the team are excellent hosts, but getting to the beach is a nightmare!

The entrance to the school isn’t marked and so you have to ask…. Then the walk down is very very steep. Be warned.

Would recommend that the website makes it clear that those with mobility issues or health issues should look else where…. And to use the loos at the top before making the descent!

Similarly the actual lessons take part on the beach to the right, which means spectators have to risk life and limb clambering over the rocks to get to it. Great for the confident and mobile, a night mare for those less mobile.

Other than that my party thoroughly enjoyed the surfing itself

Thanks for your response. We have now updated our booking confirmation email to have more details on finding us and parking. Our stunning location does make it a longer walk from the car to the beach but we believe that surfing on a quiet beach at the bottom of the cliff surrounded by nature is one of the highlights of surfing with us!

Thank you Adventure Bay Surf School for the great service! My son initially went for a lesson and the instructor Dan was awesome and fun! He was patient and made him feel really comfortable learning to surf. He has now joined the kids surf club and always looks forward to his weekend surfing lessons. I would highly recommend Dan and his team. You all rock!
