“Great Kids Party Learning To Surf”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

My son could already surf but none of his friends could so we aranged a birthday party at the beach to learn to surf with Andy of Kent Surf School. We had strong offshore winds and half a foot to 1 ft waves but Andy got everyone up on there feet and they enjoyed the whole experience. They got 30 minutes on the beach instruction then into the water for an hour of fun in the sun and surf and his attention to detail was second to none, ge also is the most qualified surf school in the area and this makes all the difference.

I have surfed since 1975 and my son for the past 3 years, so I would not take the children to anyone I felt was not up to the standard and Andy meets and ticks all the correct proceedures and professionalism. High Recommend his service this is the second review i have made of this school because it deserves another.

Very good equipment, clean, good quality. Go Learn to Surf and enjoy...

“Discover Your Inner Dude”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

My wife and I had a fantastic paddleboarding session with Kent Surf School last weekend (28 June 2014).
We're based just north of London, buit were staying for the weekend ion Broadstairs. I arranged our session with Kent Surf School by email (via the very friendly and well-organised Andy, who provided us with all the details, directions etc we needed).
We had a two lesson/session with our teacher John, who guided us expertly round the harbour at Margate. We're relative novices (had tried this once before in Canada), but we're hooked (my wife's much better than me, but what's not to like about falling in the water!).
The equipment (paddleboards, paddles, wet-suits) is all provided, and included in the very reasonable charges.
Speaking as a middle-aged, desk bound lawyer, I think I've rediscovered my inner dude!
Many thanks to Kent Surf School.

“Sea kayaking in our Hen party group was amazing!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Really brilliant sea kayaking - suitable for all levels. The guys really went above and beyond to make sure we were able to go out on the day even though there were 17 of us with slightly dodgy wind conditions.

“Awesome stand up paddle board yoga!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Stand up paddle board yoga is awesome! So much fun with a great teacher! Felt so relaxed and chilled through the whole hour and a half! Will definitely be back! Such a great way to unwind and practice yoga! Best experience practicing yoga on the water! Loved every minute of it! :))
