Booked this based on trip advisor reviews and the fact that my cousin who also lives local to the school recommended it. Booked for 3 teenagers (2 x 17 and 1 x 13) for an afternoon. Had to delay the original booking as no waves on the day which impressed me straight away - they don't want to take the... More

We met Tom when my brother was over from New Zealand and wanted to try some of the local attractions. While my brother got the lesson Tom loaned us a board to play about on at no extra cost. Top man and great vibe about the shop, it does feel like the spirit of the surf lifestyle is alive and... More

Have been out on SUP with Tom on a few occasions. He is so accommodating and thoughtful of the group working to their strengths and potential. Always professional , great instructions and tips. Been in both small and larger groups each as good.

Alicia took us out and her demonstrations, explanations & knowledge about surfing and the water were excellent! We had two 10 year... More

We spent the June Bank Holiday in the company of the fantastic Tom and his son Zachary. Two of us joined a beginners group on Sunday morning and while I was very nervous to start Tom's gentle encouragement had me sorted for the leg home! I felt like a pro! This truly is a fantastic day out and the scenery... More

Tom runs a very laid back but efficient outfit. He was in contact days before we arrived offering alternatives when the surf looked very poor. Turns out the waves were great and we had a fantastic few hours surfing out on a secluded part of the strand. Very helpful and friendly staff who are happy to let every one have... More
