I booked a morning's surfing for a group of 18 middle aged complete novices with more than a little trepidation at the back of my mind. Would my friends have fun ? Would it be too strenuous ? And most importantly, would the North Sea...More

Had a brilliant morning - adults and teenage kids had fab time. Jon's a great teacher and we didn't get cold at all as all the gear is great. Couldn't have improved it in any way - really memorable.

My teenage daughter and myself had never attempted surfing before. Given that neither of us is at all sporty, we awaited the lesson with a little trepidation. Jon was excellent - patient, humourous and was able to keep things simple. We had 2.5 hours of...More

My 2 teenage girls had a great time surfing with Jon. They found his teaching style spot on and relaxed. Some great photo opportunities!
