“Cool Surfing at Surfing Croyde Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Cool Surfing at Surfing Croyde Bay - summed up by our 9 year old daughter. Had to cancel last October due to bad weather! - Surfing Croyde Bay were brilliant and allowed us to rearrange at our convenience - we have just got back following our 5 days there and are now looking to book our summer holiday, it 's the only place our daughter wants to go!! she surfed for the first time and I cannot put in to words how surfing Croyde Bay made the experience for her. The tuition and instruction she received were excellent - fun and learning at the same time. Warm and Welcoming, we had a fantastic time - Great Ice cream too!!!

“If Carlsberg did Surf lessons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

I can't praise Surfing Croyde Bay enough. Ally, Kerry, Vicky and the whole crew make you feel like you have known them for ages. Arrive as strangers leave as friends.

Two families of 4 adults and 3 children aged 13 - 10 had lessons over the easter weekend and they really really can't do enough to ensure everyone has a good time.

Surf was non existant on the Sunday and they planned through another company (who were also excellent) to go Coasteering.. Drove us to another bay and we spent a coupel fo hours clambering over rocks and throwing ourselves off them.

Already scheduling dates for next year and bringing along more friends.

“Great Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Just back from weekend learning to surf with Kerry at Surfing Croyde Bay. Had a fantastic time. Kerry was a brilliant instructor with my son up and at it on the 3rd attempt. I took a little longer but Kerry was really encouraging and helpful all the way. Great instructor/student ratio! Had lots of time for us and it really made a difference. Lovely feel to the place, all were very welcoming and friendly.

“Fantastic friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Our first time in Croyde. We have two daughters aged 15 and 13 who really wanted to enhance their surfing skills. Surfing Croyde Bay were excellent at advising us at what was best for the girls. They went in as beginners and advanced to intermediate. All instructors were friendly and made their experience memorable. Thanks so much. We can't wait to come back. Pasties and hot chocolates in the shop went down a treat too.
