Fantastic...what more can I say. Great communication and small groups on a private beach. Far from the madding crowds ..or rather surf lessons on Fistral beach. Lessons were fun, and taken in stages. Very professional. Everyone got plenty of attention on their boards and fun was part of the learning. We will be back.

This was my 10 year old boys third year of 1-2-1 lessons at Errant, he has a challenging personality, however he always has a great time and the surf instructors get on well with him, was sooo proud to see him almost up on the board with James on Sunday. Always receive professional and friendly service from everyone at Errant!... More

My 13 yr old son had his 1st lesson on great western beach last week. Within an hour he was standing up and riding the waves. Very good instruction, broken down into sections. Will definitely have further lessons from errant next visit.

I found this surf school by accident online whilst researching surfing in Newquay. The staff were incredibly friendly and spent time at the beginning really getting to know the children, their ability level and what they wanted to get out of the day. My children were taught on different days by Max & Reece and they raved about them both.... More

Exactly what we looked for in a lesson. As a couple we received an amazing half day lesson to get a taster on surfing. Got exactly what we wanted out of the time with Max and would definitely do it again.

I spent a few days at errant having a few lessons then on surf hire for a bit as well. The lessons were a lot of fun and very useful without complicating anything. All the instructors were easy to get along with and really chilled out. I would recommend anyone to come here and you will have an amazing time.
