I came down to newquay for a few days last week, I stayed in the lodge and booked a lesson. Kirsteen and mat are very welcoming and friendly! Make you feel at home as soon as you step in the door!The lodge is very clean, with access to a kitchen, tv and lots of dvds ( good when your on a budget, not spending too much money eating out or on entertainment) I had a one on one surf lesson with mat last week. I must say it was something I always wanted to do, but tended to put off, not being so confident in water, nor the sporty type really. But thought I would give it a go anyway! - so glad i did!!
Mat really put me at ease about the whole thing. Prior to getting in the water went over sea safety an awareness, he talked over everything clearly as to what was going to happen during the lesson and when we got into the water everything seamed to click. I'm not the fastest learner, mat was very patient but encouraging. I felt very safe and could really tell mat knew exactly what he was talking about, helping correct small things I was doing wrong which really affected, the success rate of catching the wave! I did manage to stand up in my first lesson, which i wasn't expecting! So if i can do it, anyone can!
I will be back for more lessons soon with my boyfriend and other friends, Cannot recommend more highly!
