Had a beginners surf lesson on the 26th of June 2017 courtesy of a birthday present from my Wife (58 already !). The two instructors, Jo' and Tamsin were excellent, not only covering all elements of how to get up on your board (which all of our group managed) but some good knowledge of how waves form, the potential danger of rip tides and overall safety advise. They stayed with the group whilst in the sea and were on hand to give advise and recommendations to enable us to at least get a real taste for the sport. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

We were nervous when we arrived at the surf school, my wife is not a strong swimmer, the guys put as totally at ease and we even managed to stand up (for a second!) we booked for one session and upgraded to the three day course. So much fun and such a great location.

Our daughter had her first ever surf lesson and experience of surfing....... something she loved so much, got her standing up on the board! Great instructions and guidance from her instructor. Great value for money. Gave her confidence and an amazing experience.

Andy and the team had all our kids standing up within 30 mins of the lesson starting. Our kids (range 5-8) enjoyed their relaxed style and their use of other games kept everyone warm and engaged throughout the two hours. I watched from the beach with my 3 year old but would have preferred to have got stuck in with some of the other parents who either took part in the lesson or were just getting involved. I didn't think my five year old would stick it out but she did - thanks wave hunters!

Jack and his team were brilliant. Jack managed to engaged the various ages of our family: from a reluctant teenager, enthusiastic adolescent, unsure 10 year old and middle aged mother. We all were able to enjoy the waves and thinking of coming back for more. Even my 70 year old mother enjoyed chatting to the 'guys' in the hut and playing with the surfing spaniel Lola.
