Even for the reluctant surfers in our group, this was a wonderful morning surfing. A quick recap and warm up dip, followed by lots of fun on the waves. Thoroughly recommend them!

We took a private lesson as we weren't sure what level we were at - Laura our instruction was fantastic and got us both on green waves by the end of the lesson - a first for us both.

Our two girls had a 2 hour lesson on Fistral Beach yesterday. They absolutely loved the experience! It was really great for them to learn such a lot in a short space of time, all equipment included in the price. Highly recommend 👍
