Have joined already 3 times in Switzerland for snowkiting and awaiting for my third time in Newgale for kitesurfing and other summer stuff. Amazing and super-inspiring all the times!

All round superb. From easy booking & great communication, to fantastic staff & instructors. Each activity was over two days, both matched to the best weather/tides on that day. We were made to feel at ease and had a great time trying these new activities. The BBE also represents fantastic value for money. Would definitely recommend and use again if... More

As a family we did the coasteering and paddleboarding then my two sons (12&14) did an afternoon of surfing. The coasteering was amazing and will live long in the memory it had everything and we all relaxed into the experience realising quickly that we were in safe experienced hands. The paddleboarding was equally brilliant and together with learning the basics... More

My husband and I had a such a great time bodyboarding with Big Blue Experience. The lesson was well constructed. Ollie is very informative and patient. Newgale is a fabulous location - long beach and nice cafe right next to the shop! We loved every minute of the afternoon. Thank you!

I visited The Big Blue Experience last summer and had SUCH a great time. We went surfing and kite-landboarding over a two day period. The instructors are really knowledgable and friendly, making us feel safe and also giving us tons of advice on where to eat and secluded beaches to visit.
