Had a brilliant morning - adults and teenage kids had fab time. Jon's a great teacher and we didn't get cold at all as all the gear is great. Couldn't have improved it in any way - really memorable.

Would recommend this 100% - myself and my two teen sons 16 and 15 had our first lesson with Jon and were straight up on the boards and boarding upstream and downstream of picturesque Warkworth on the beautiful River Coquet. Really good fun and great instruction, equipment and company from Jon. I had injured my foot running a couple of... More

We have just returned from the most amazing weekend in Bamburgh for a special birthday treat for myself. I booked John as a surprise for my girl-friends for a Saturday afternoon activity. The cost of the session for 6 of us included full tuition from John, the wetsuits and boards (we used surf boards). John clearly is very experienced at... More

We (family with 3 kids aged 16, 14 and 10) booked an afternoon's stand-up paddle boarding with Jon as it was too calm for surfing. It was brilliant, and a highlight of our holiday. We met Jon in Warkworth and paddle-boarded up the River Coquet and back which took 2 hours. Jon had all the equipment we needed and it... More

My teenage daughter and myself had never attempted surfing before. Given that neither of us is at all sporty, we awaited the lesson with a little trepidation. Jon was excellent - patient, humourous and was able to keep things simple. We had 2.5 hours of immense fun in a stunning setting on Bamburgh Beach. We were both kneeling on the... More

My 2 teenage girls had a great time surfing with Jon. They found his teaching style spot on and relaxed. Some great photo opportunities!

John is such a friendly experienced instructor, i have had two lessons with him and i have loved every second. I have the bug for surfing now though. In my first lesson i managed to catch my first few waves. The winter is best to do it for the bigger waves, and dont worry about feeling cold because the wetsuits... More

We had a 2-hour family surf lesson with Jon on Warkworth beach last week. We totally loved it! Jon got us kitted out in wetsuits and then took us through the basics. He soon had us out in the water practising. The look on the kids faces when they caught their first wave will stay me forever. Jon is a... More

Absolutely brilliant couple of days with Jon. Very down to earth guy and professional. Put everyone at ease and made sure that everyone achieved something from the day. We re-booked another day as the kids enjoyed it so much. Will definitely be back.

An amazing experience. As someone who has never surfed before but always wanted to give it a go I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Jon was encouraging, knowledgeable and really supportive. He supplies all the equipment which is handy, making the session really great value for money (and the wetsuits meant we were nice and warm in the water!)... More
