  • Great experience for me (17) and my brother (10). Fantastic instructors and everyone in our group managed to surf standing up, as well!

  • "The small groups meant we received very good one to one time with the instructor who was really friendly, approachable and supportive. It exceeded our expectations in every way and I would highly recommend your surf school"

  • From the friendly telephone manner upon booking to the moment we parted ways after three little boys experienced surfing for the first time, we were treated like the most important customers ever. Top notch service, even against the elements Ed and Lewis remained motivational and encouraging. The instructors were able to hold the attention of the boys for the whole time.
