I booked a 2 hour surf lesson for my husband and 12year old daughter. They both absolutely loved it. The instructors we very friendly and they learn loads, even managed to stand up on the board. Would highly recommend Harlyn bay surf school.

We attended the beginner surfclass and were very satisfied. The only thing was that it was very crowded in the water. It would have been better with a smaller group.More
