Just awesome. Surf instructors where brilliant, they were knowledgeable and helpful. All staff willing to go that extra mile and everyone was super friendly just made the experience that little bit more special would go and do it again any time!

The lodge had everything we needed, beds (comfiest bunk beds ever! Seriously!), bathroom, lounge to chill in and a dining room. Great area and 5 minute walk to town, sooooooooo close to Fistral Beach where we were surfing. The surfing teachers were amazing because as a group of about 25 we all stood up at least once during the trip!!!... More

Thought it would be too cold for 7,9 and 10 yr olds but they had a great time. Matt was a great teacher and concentrated on getting the kids up and on their boards. Highly recommended.

Well what can I say, fantastic bunch of people who made you feel so welcome. I was the stag in a party of 9 and I was so impressed by the enthusiasm of the team - none of the snobbishness that you might expect from a top, top surfing name. Instead I was bowled over by the pure desire to... More

Booked this for my mates stag. 7 of us for the lesson even though I've surfed all over the world I thought our instructor Sarah was ace. Was very professional and most of all fun some of the gang caught some waves and everyone had a great time. Thanks very much

My friend and I booked 3 lessons over 3 days at the end of February `14. Our instructors were Matt and Al. I cant praise both of them enough for their dedication, encouragement and flair with which they got both of us, total novices, to stand up :-) Loved it and will be back for more for sure. Thank you!!!!... More

After a few 'just scrambling up any old way' surf sessions I finally decided to take a proper lesson. Did a 1:1 session with Alana. She was fantastic!!! Gave great tips, really fixed my problems, and I was standing like a rock star in no time. Thank you so much, now I am the 'wave machine'! The whole staff there... More
