First ever surf lesson and Daniel the instructor was incredible! Knowledgable kind and VERY patient and so excited for us! Even shared his suncream so we didn't burn our faces! All equipment and showers included in price. The surf school staff were so friendly and welcoming and were just as enthusiastic about us learning to surf as we were. One... More

Went as part of a hen-do and we had a great time with Cece. He was so patient and helpful as we were a range of abilities but he was so cheerful and even came in on his day off to teach us on the second day! The school as a whole were great - changing lesson times so we... More

Booked a private lesson with them, very helpful from enquiry to booking! Instructor ready and waiting when I arrived. Very knowledgeable and supportive during lesson and advised of best time time practice after the lesson. Good changing facilities where I was able to leave big all day, they even locked my car key away safe for me during the day!... More

Had a great time learning to surf. A 2 hour lesson with Ceci who did a great job in explaining how to surf. Well organised and great value for money. Plus you get a discount on further hire of wetsuits and boards. Well worth a visit.

spend a couple of hours doing something you thought you couldn't. the coaches explained how to ride the surf boards and then let you out to try, but were always close by to help. the whole beach complex was self contained and reasonably priced, with the town close by for a little more retail therapy. This is good for a... More

He was very funny and made us all feel good and not worried. After short walk to the south part of the beach, Liam talked us through some basics and then... More

Nothing was too much trouble and I instantly felt that we were in safe hands. On arrival we were greeted by all staff with a friendly hello and smile. Then our... More

I'm a local girl and can vouch for the friendliness of the staff there - I don't personally know them but they helped me out the other day with a problem in the car park so they deserve a good mention on here - thanks guys for your kindness!

We returned to Fistral following a wonderful trip to the surf school last year (with Kate, who was absolutely amazing). The beach was fantastic as always, although the waves were poor and there was a jet ski competition on, so a good portion of the beach was closed off (although I won't factor these into the review, as I realise...

Brilliant two days of surfing thanks to our fantastic instructor Ceci who was patient, knowledgeable and made the whole experience really good fun. By the end of the second lesson we were all managing to stand up catching waves, can't wait to come again!
