“Great surf school”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I have used Surf's Up many times when I've been in Polzeath. They are very good, attentive and know how to teach well and have helped me be a better surfer. Although during my recent visit, I didn't use them, as the waves were flat and didn't go surfing that much; only I thought I'd write a good review to anyone thinking of using Surf's Up. They are the only school I would use; however it is a shame they lost their site on the beach and have moved locations. Hope to see you soon!

Hi Lisa-Marie, Thanks so much for your feedback. We did have a bit of a flat spell, (check out the Surf's Up! blog for surfing tips when it's small) but that's all in the past now... waves aplenty! Pete

“Suf lesson”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Three terrified middled aged women went for a surf lesson this March, with Surfs Up! in Polzeath.
We were most scared about getting cold. Avian and Wail, had to listen to us whinging and complaining as we got into our wetsuits/hats/gloves/boots.... we looked FABULOUS, especially in our rubber hats. Lipstick on, we braved the waves.
We had the BEST time, we laughed and whooped for 2 hours. Wail (our instructor) was a saint: patient, kind, patient and a very good teacher.
I can't recommend these chaps highly enough. If they can tolerate me and my friends AND manage to teach us something, they must be good. AND we stayed really toasty in our outfits! Go and give it a go! It makes you feel glad to be alive.

“Great service and a great time with Surfs up.”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Dear Avian,

A very big thank you to Surfs Up and Wailin for looking after us so well on Sat 23rd Nov and making my daughters 21st a fab, fun event. It was a beautiful day and Wailin kept everybody in great spirits throughout the whole lesson. He was brilliant. The photographs are fab (thank you Anna and 360 photography) everyone enjoyed looking at the photographs on a big screen before our evening meal. It really couldn't have been better. Thank you so much.
