In Saturday Thanet Swim club had what is turning out to be an annual day out at the surf club. All those working at the place made the kids welcome, gave great information, and had equipment for all. The kids loved the surf lessons with most getting 'up' on the boards and giving them a real thirst for a return.... More

This was a free event for all the public organised by the guys from the surf school. Wonderful that people will devote so much of their time and organisation into making things happen for the public. Free activities for all ages and all the family. Skateboarding pipes set up on the beach and the car park to have a go... More

I booked my daughter (11) and three friends a surfing session and after having to postpone twice due to completely flat calm conditions, we finally went for it on Sunday! Rain was expected in the afternoon but the breeze was up, so ideal for surfing. All four children thoroughly enjoyed themselves despite getting completely battered by the weather as the... More

They both had a great day out learning loads and both 'got up' on the boards and really want to come back for more. All instructors were great and had great way with the kids as well... More

I've wanted to go paddle boarding for ages and I'm so glad that Joss Bay had them available! When we first arrived all the paddle boards were being hired, it was a 27 degree Saturday so I wasn't surprised but a while later, we went back and a few were free! I thought £10 per hour was reasonable (cash only!)... More

After nearly 16 years off a surfboard I decided things needed to change. I had a private lesson with Dave from Joss Bay Surf School, mainly because I didn't want to be shown up by kids! Dave instantly made me feel at ease and assessed my knowledge of the sport so he knew how to pitch the lesson. As is... More

Had the two hour SUP session this morning and it was amazing. Dave the instructor was good humoured, patient, knowledgeable and gave plenty of gentle encouragement! Just what was needed!! Great set up here and good value for money. We will be back!

The staff are welcoming and are very polite! Gave me loads of advice on how to correct my mistakes. It's an amazing, awesome and adventurous experience. The surf instructors are easy to communicate with and are really supportive and clear on instructions. Thanks to the rad surf coaches Dave Melmoth and Ralph Walton, these guys are the best!

In Thanet we have some of the most underrated beaches in the UK and what Joss Bay Surf School have done is create a fantastic facility in a beautiful setting, you could be any where in the world when you are in the sea and the experience of the surf instructor is second to none. Highly recommend.
