My family stayed at Bedruthan Steps Hotel, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall. We had two family surfing lessons my dad and us, 10 year old twin girls. Mateos got the girls up standing during the first lesson and dad managed to stand up in the second lesson. I loved it because my twin didn't do it last time but was speechless after... More

We had a great time at our 2 hour lesson. I had been worried that my children 8&6 would struggle but they picked up the technique quicker than we did! Bernie was a brilliant teacher and we were all standing up by the end of the lesson. If it hadn't been our last day we would definitely have booked another... More

We thought we'd have a surf lesson as part of our honeymoon. I've done plenty of surfing before but my wife is a begginner and we're delighted to be able to have a lesson with Nick for just the two of us that catered for the fact that we were at very different levels of ability. It's fair to say... More

I had a series of lessons with Nick - he took a total beginner to standing in no time at all. Well placed instruction, with great cause and effect advice to show what needed to be done to get up on the board. Friendly and knowledgeable. Quality stuff

We had a lesson with Nick in May and he was brilliant. As well as being a very easy person to get on with, he was a great teacher. It's a nice cove to learn in as not too busy. We had lots of goes as surfing lying down and then I attempted to stand up. We were in a... More

My daughters, their friend and father booked a lesson during our Easter holidays. They had not surfed before but that was not to be a problem. When I strolled onto the beach at Mawgan Porth to check progress they were having so much fun and even managing to stand on the board! Matthias was a lovely instructor, very kind and... More

Booked a lesson through the hotel, but on the day we turned up and spoke with Nick, who advised us that due to the lack of waves, it would be better to rearrange to the following day when the forecast was better. Matthias was a great instructor, and gave good advice. Would recommend!

We had a fantastic day on Saturday with a great instructor from Portugal. He was so patient with us and gave some great advise. great fun all round - although my arms are still hurting today. He also gave some good advise on using Yoga to get surf fit. Highly recommend if your staying in the area. M.x

Just had an excellent session with Nick. Really knowledgeable and excellent instructor who clearly puts the needs of the client first and is passionate about what they do. Mawgan Porth is just picture postcard stuff and Nick really helps you understand what to look for when out in water. Definitely be back.

We booked a couple's beginner lesson. Nick was brilliant and a great instructor. We both came away having learnt a lot in a short space of time, but wanting to come back to learn more and improve. We can't wait!
