Adult surf got cancelled due to no waves We were offered an alternate date or a refund and choose the refund. This was processed immediately and with no issues We had also booked a children's surf and this went ahead. They ranged from 11 - 9 and absolutely loved it! My son rated it as 10/10 and the hot chocolate and biscuits after the session was 1000% appreciated by them all. We caused a bit of an issue on arrival by going to the wrong surf company in error. By the time it was identified almost 30 mins had passed Blackfield still gave the children their full slot and were very professional and so accommodating even though the error was totally ours. Communication with the company was excellent throughout from initial booking to the refund . I would definitely recommend.

What a shared experience for the family. Fantastic customer service started with phone comms with Caoimhe. Really set the tone. minded and guided by the instructors at all times, having care for our personal safety and other beach goers safety. Our kids throughly enjoyed the day. Couldn’t find a more perfect place on earth to try your hand at surfing. People make the experience and the people running blackfield surfing delivered with spades. As we say in Cork ‘Savage’!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to all. We’ve banked that memory.
