We had a super lesson with Gavin who recommended the day based on waves for beginners! It really built my confidence and gave my husband some top tips. I would come back for another lesson with the school on this super beach. Staff at the store were also extremely helpful...and given the time of year I had all the gear and didn’t even feel cold!

We were very lucky to stay in Perranporth for nearly a month over the summer holidays and between all of us - family of 4 we had around 30 surf lessons.

The guys at the school made us all feel at ease, delivered great lessons and most of all made it fun - even for me who thought I'd never be able to stand up and now can and love it. Big thanks especially to Matt, Louis and Naomi who took most of our lessons. Also to Steph for arranging all of our lessons. We can't wait to come back again and are so excited to have a new hobby as a family thank you to you all :)

At my tender age I decided to give it a go. Booked 2 lessons and enjoyed both and even though I will never be great at surfing but I was given confidence to keep going. I now have my own board and will pop back from time to time to brush up on my skills. Thanks all

Hi davephil2016,

Thank you kindly for your review!

Of course, surfing is not easy and can be frustrating at times; but, its great to hear that we were able to inspire you to keep at it. Practice (with the occasional guidance) is key to break the plateaus in your learning curve, but it's always more important to have fun with it. Keep surfing, and we will be happy to help when you feel you need it!

Best regards,
Gavin

What an amazing group of people! We booked online and then communicated by email, just to make sure we were definitely on the beginner's course and not the pro-surfer's. All communication was quick, clear and concise.
Arrived on the first day and were kitted out with good quality gear and with surfboard in hand set off to the sea.
All the instructors were amazing, special shout out to Fin and Dylan who were not only knowledgeable but also great fun.
After five 2hour sessions we came away with the teenagers being able to surf proficiently and the adults still trying!
We enjoyed the whole experience so much we'll be back in 2019.

I took myself and my 2 teenage sons (13/15) for a surfing lesson to try and find the glory years form the 1990's myself! Both of my boys were surfing by the end of the first lesson, they had never tried long boarding before. I even managed to get my 15 stone frame up a few times! Ruben the instructor was excellent, attentive and happy to offer advice when asked. Observing the other lessons around [from the same school] these instructors are all clearly well trained and offer the safest and all round best instruction from my observations. Well done! We will be back!
