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.

    Had a surfing lesson with Kyle today, what a great experience. It was our first time trying to surf, my daughters picked it up straight away with fantastic guidance from Kyle. Took me a little longer but managed to ride a few waves! Would definitely recommend lessons with Quicksilver surfing school 🏄

    We had a great time in Newquay coasteering with Cornish Wave. We were able to get changed in their shop and being able to shower afterwards was really helpful. The coastline there was so interesting with jumps, climbs, whirlpools and a swim through cave if you were brave enough. There was even a quick history lesson about smugglers and a look in the caves they mined out to store their contraband. Thanks to Kate for a brilliant morning.

    Had a great weekend catching waves with like minded people who love to bodyboard. Damian, Sean, James and Warrick gave great advice on where to surf and pointers on how to improve my riding. With great pictures to take away to study thanks to Warrick.

    For the 2nd year on the bounce we booked Newquay for October half term. I would urge anyone who has chance to do the same. The surf school as always is such an awesome set up, great facilities, all the proper gear and fantastic instructors. Booked a beginner group session for me and my 12year old daughter, Nick was absolutely spot on and soon had us both standing, I think the sea/surf was even better than previous summer visits. Will deffo be back next October. Memories made, so much fun…..thank you

    Booked my first ever surf lessons with Escape surf school, and I’m so glad I did, I was met by friendly faces from the start …. I had my first lesson with Richard who was great and had me up on my feet within the first 30 minutes which is amazing and my second lesson was with Mat who again despite poor sea conditions had me starting to turn. Great bunch of people and can’t wait to come back down and have some more lessons. Thank you everybody at Escspe surf surf school.

    Thank you very much to Scott - he looked after us brilliantly and my boys (8 and 10) say coasteering was their best thing about their week in Cornwall. :)

    As a family, four of us, did the Sea Kayaking, kids aged 18, 17 and 14. The guides, Sam and Nick were excellent, telling us about local history and wildlife. Great fun, not as physically demanding as you think, as the guides knew the “tides and swells” very well. Seals were around the coastline making the experience even better. Great quality equipment given.

    Decided to get my son a gift voucher, as a last minute gift for Christmas. Maybe left it a bit late - but Pete came to my rescue & even sent it before i’d paid for it! Arrived in time for the big day.
    We have used Kingsurf a number of times over the years & my son always enjoys the sessions, the team are always helpful & constructive. Brilliant surf school with great down to earth instructors. Well done guys.

    Excellent surfing coaches and the instructor made it great fun and had a lot of energy. Would recommend it. Made sure we all knew the safety aspects and then plenty of help in the water.

    I went surfing on Tuesday 3rd October and met with Dave who was well experienced in his surfing journey. He showed me what to do and made sure that I was safe the entire time. I highly recommend this experience.

    Great family lesson with Levi from Blue surf school, booking was easy, Watergate bay was a great beach to learn to surf, Levi was very patient and explained everything well with continued tips and support throughtout the 2hr lesson, my daughters were up and surfing straight away and i even managed to catch a few good waves. We will definitely return and book more lessons next year. Thanks to all the staff for an amazing experience.

    Have just returned from an amazing weekend in Newquay with Women and Waves. Everything was so great and the team were so helpful. Wetsuits, equipment and instruction was superb, a shout out to Maya for being such a patient and fun teacher, her enthusiasm was infectious!!! Great group of women to learn with and couldn’t be more helpful in getting accommodation and advice. Stoked 🏄‍♀️
