Thanks guys. What a great lesson. Lou was able to quickly assess my ability and give succinct and direct pointers on how to improve. Within 2hrs I had made great progress. I thought the cost was very reasonable.

We were really nervous as to what to expect when we booked our first ever surf lesson with Big Green right in peak time but our instructor Lou was really supportive and explained everything perfectly. She completely put our minds at rest about being worried and got us catching waves in no time - really informative and relaxed at the same time.

Definitely going to keep it up after a cracking first lesson!

We were a group of 2 families and with 3 pre-teen boys and 4 adults it is not always easy to find something that everyone wants to do together. Whilst it was an early start, up at 6.30am to be on the beach just after 7am(!!) it was totally worth it. We were rewarded with a beautifully calm and sunny morning and some of the best weather all week.
We were all novice SUP-ers, not that this mattered. After a few minutes instruction on the beach we were off, first on our knees and then standing. Dale was teaching us and got it absolutely spot on - enough adventure and tricks for the boys whilst making sure us adults had fun too. I will always remember now that when you fall off it is much easier to make sure you get back on the board facing the front!!
Beautiful scenery, lovely sunny morning and relatively peaceful, excluding the laughter from us all - perfect.
I would definitely recommend, even with the early start (maybe even better early as so much quieter). We all had a fantastic morning, and the boys rated it as the best thing all holiday. Thanks again Dale, we certainly all left with big smiles and talking about when we could go again. Unfortunately for us it won't be Crantock until next year, but who knows where we will try SUP again in the meantime.

We had a family SUP lesson yesterday with Adam. Fabulous fun and a lovely instructor. SUPs are now on the Christmas list for my 11 year daughter and myself!

So stoked that you enjoyed it - I'll pass the feedback on to Adam, I know he'll be buzzing that you were happy with the lesson! If you need any advice or anything about purchasing SUP's (or if Santa needs some assistance) then just give us a shout and we'd always be happy to help.

Our group really enjoyed our surf lesson with Lucas on the 13th of August. As well as being a really nice guy, he was so professional, attentive and really had an interest in teaching us beginners how to surf. I would definitely recommend this school for new surfers and of course the fantastic Lucas!
