I have been surfing with Big Gren Surf School for over 5 years now and am coming back several times per year. Super happy with the equipment, location and surf coaches - very professional, friendly, supportive and fun. Recommended for both beginners and intermediate/advanced surfers, small groups, very flexible and personal coaching.

Date of experience: September 2017

2 hr+ surf lesson at Crantock with Ross. Brilliant instructor and my son felt confident to give it all a go and managed to stand . The calm and consistent teaching not and seemingly never ending patience helped him so much. Thank you

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.
