This was such a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The booking process was easy with Richard being flexible to our needs and abilities and fit it with our holiday. We were a mixed group of children and adults and also surfing experience. Richard emailed us a few days before our lesson to confirm the details, meeting place and instructors. Dale and Tom were fantastic instructors, the teaching sessions on the beach before we went in the water were clear and tailored to our needs. In the water, they were looking out for each of us and giving individual encouragements and pointers for improvement. The two hour lesson flew by and I am already thinking I would love to go back next year and do it again!

This is the second year of having surf lessons we booked them for a night surf on porth with Rich but unfortunately he was injured. But not to let the kids down by cancelling he got Tom to take the lesson but the sea was flat calm so offered to take them to Watergate the next day where the surf would be better and it was well worth the wait Tom and phil took the lesson and where great really good with the kids most of the kids got there feet and loved every minute of it highly recommended see you guys in October thinking of giving it a go myself cheers

I have nothing but the highest praise for our instructors Dale and Matt. We were a mixed group. Young children, teenagers and adults. Most of the group had not surfed before. The teaching was presented clearly and at a level that everyone understood. Each member of the group got individual attention and advice whilst in the water. We felt that our safety was their priority. In addition to all this the instructors adapted to the specific health needs of the of the group without fuss and were extremely supportive and helpful. We all had fun, laughed and swallowed a tone of sea water. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Me and my friend had the opportunity to have a lesson with shoreline adventures and as first time surfers we were given the necessary training/guidance to help us surf. We had Richard as our coach who was great at explaining the details and was there to help whenever there was a question or problem.

We went at a perfect time in the evening and the beach was empty enough to let newcomers try the sport. The weather was good and we had the opportunity to watch the sun set as we were surfing which made the whole experience a lot better.

Thanks for the good time and hope to do it all again soon.

We returned to Cornwall again this year for our holiday. The first thing the kids wanted to do was have another surfing lesson with Rich. He is a fantastic teacher. He ensures they have fun, but keeps them safe too. It was great value for money. We had booked a longer lesson, but the kids got tired so we finished sooner than planned. So Rich only charged us for the shorter lesson. We will definitely be booking again next year. Highly recommended.
