The best thing we have done as a family. Mum, Dad and kids aged 16,13,11 and 9 all catered for. Kim was especially good at making it just the right level for youngest. And we ALL got up on the board! Very highly recommended. Xx

My husband and two daughters (9 & 10) had two lessons with Ben over last weekend. They had a fantastic time, the girls getting very proficient, if my husband less so! Already planning a return trip. Excellent personal service, well worth paying extra for.
