My husband and I were visiting Cornwall for a short break and felt we couldn't come to Newquay without having a go at surfing. As a couple in our 50's we were very apprehensive but the sun was shining so we booked an introductory lesson with the surf school. Wet suits and boards were provided, with changing rooms & showers... More

Totally recommend this school for surfing lessons. Their instructors are brilliant and teach you all the basics. They're easy to talk to and very nice and encouraging. Easy to deal with. All the equipment is provided and you even get a discount for future use.

From the moment we booked we were made to feel welcome. Our instructor Tony was brilliant especially given the wide age range and abilities of our particular group. Everyone managed to stand on their boards by the end of the two hour session Would highly recommend this whether you have had a surf lesson before or not.

I had two group lessons at Fistral Beach and both were awesome. I especially enjoyed the lesson with Tariq, he gave me lots of confidence and helped me get my technique right so I could stand up on the board and properly surf! Everyone was really friendly. Thanks guys :)

Our teenagers had a fabulous surfing lesson and our son even stood up on his board and surfed the waves, it was great to have the instructor to the three of them but worth the money and we will definately be back
