The beach was beautiful, the waves were great and Dan was an awesome instructor. After a short lesson on the beach to run through safety signals, how to position myself on the board, how to stand up etc we went out into the water. Dan was a super friendly guy and was really good at watching what I was doing... More

Never ever even tried to surf before and wanted to try it out and it was sooo fun! Both surf instructors were lovely and funny and really helped me out when we was in the sea! Even though I didn't manage to stand up it was still really fun on my knees but a lot of people stood up in... More

My three girls had a brilliant surfing lesson with Dan earlier this week. The weather was terrific although on the day we booked the surf was down so Dan offered the alternative of coasteering or change to the next day which we did. He was so helpful texting me with weather updates. They also hire boards out which the girls... More

My wife booked this as an added bonus for the family, it's good to try something new. What a great time we all had, it's not easy but it's fun and challenging. Brilliant! The instructors, Dan & Will were very helpful and understanding of our novice abilities, we didn't feel out of place at all. We will definitely be returning... More

Saw the great reviews for this surf school and me and my 8 year old daughter were not disappointed, having not surfed before. Dan is very friendly and easy going and offered great advice to help us. Tom got my daughter up very quickly and she loved it. Will go back, I cannot recommend them highly enough. Whitsand Bay is... More

Booked a 3 hour intro lesson with the Adventure Bay Surf School and we were not disappointed. We were 15 hungover girls in the water and they ensured we all had a fair chance of catching a wave and stand up on the board (some more successful than others :)). Dan and Dan were really patient and had a great... More

My son and I (age 16 & 43) booked a 2 hour introductory lesson, myself being a little apprehensive not having been in the surf for years! I needn't have worried - we had a fantastic time. The booking process was very efficient. We booked in advance by email and directions & instructions were clearly sent. Wetsuits & shoes are... More
