My 16 year old daughter and 14 year old don spent 2 very happy hours here yesterday, learning to surf. There wasn't much of a swell to surf on but they caught a couple of waves and stayed upright for a few seconds! Everyone was lovely and friendly and I was particularly impressed with the squirt of suncream offered to... More

Booked this in advance and just as well as it was fully booked on the day. Great staff, very friendly. Made a young wannabe surf dude very happy on his first ever lesson. All suits, boots and boards provided for the beginner lessons and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

My finance and I did a 2 hour beginners lesson today. Right from the start it was great. Knowledgeable and super friendly. Andy constantly made sure we were well hydrated before going in the water, and made sure we had suncream on (which they provided for us). The safety information and on sand tutorial was really good, even with a... More

As beginners, we decided to opt for a tour rather than just a hire. So glad we did. Our tour guide, Andy, made sure we understood about the tides etc, whilst ensuring we had fun and enjoyed our day. Couldn't recommend Kent Surf School enough!

Tried the introductory surf lesson with my adult son. I don't like water much but I felt safe and confident in 2 hours. He loved it and is planning another lesson already. Friendly staff who kept me motivated, fun games in the water. Will definitely try this again. Something you should try at least once whatever your age.

I have wanted to try SUP for a long time and finally got round to booking in a beginner's lesson with the guys at Kent Surf School. It was a fantastic experience and I'd highly recommend it to anyone - even if you're not that confident in the water you'll be in very safe hands! The atmosphere was really welcoming... More
