Superb time getting to grips with surfing -great teacher in Lewis who made the 2 days a lot of fun!!(thank you!) Would highly recommend this to anyone thinking to visit the area - and wish we had had more days to do the coasteering experience as that looked amazing too! Will sign up for this when we visit next.

Great experience climbing and swimming in a lovely cove. Instructors were great.. Friendly, supportive and informative. Bit of a mix up of location though as it did not indicate that we had to meet at a different location than the centre on the website. Other than that thought the website was good and was easy to book. Will definitely use... More

Great morning out, coasteering with outdoor adventures. Challenging waves and weather..my two teenagers had great fun jumping, climbing and being tumbled by the waves. A great session, ideal for teens. Great instructors to help and provide confidence.

From the friendly telephone manner upon booking to the moment we parted ways after three little boys experienced surfing for the first time, we were treated like the most important customers ever. Top notch service, even against the elements Ed and Lewis remained motivational and encouraging. The instructors were able to hold the attention of the boys for the whole... More

Myself and my other half were staying in a campsite only 5 mins from widemouth bay and thought it would be stupid not to give surfing a go. So called up on the morning of our surf and booked for a 2 hour lesson at 10:00 am. We arrived and greeted by our friendly and helpful teacher. The only suggestion... More

Visited with a school trip of 14 eight and nine-year olds from Weymouth for a long weekend. We were very well looked after from arrival to departure.

Well kept and lovely views; the sea was possible to actually swim in! The cliff tops are full of birds and some farm animals, the beaches clean and good for experienced surfers.
