Can't speak highly enough of the dudes at Kingsurf. Patient, attentive and not too stress. Tom was the bomb and Pete is warm and genuine. Come here instead of looking elsewhere

I love Kingsurf, fantastic instructors who really engaged with my boys and they loved every single one of their surf lessons. Will definitely be signing up next year. Pete must be one of the most enthusiastic people I've ever met. 5 stars well deserved
