Took my 2 daughters, 13 and 11, to Sandymouth Surf School in late August 2011. They had a great time and Robin is a fantastic teacher. I don't think I have seen the girls laugh so much. Would recommend this to everyone. I think that Robin runs 2 sessions most days, am and pm depending on the tides. Only one... More

I am really glad that the girls had a good time. If you are in the area this summer then we can put you on to one of our early morning sessions so that you could get a bit of practice in before the girls are even awake! Thanks again :) More

Great activity - completed as part of a Hen Weekend in Bude. Excellent instructors - patient, caring and funny! Most of us were a little nervous, but were put at ease immediately and so were able to fully embrace the activity!

We took a group of children down to Sandymouth Surf School from Care Homes across Somerset. Small group, 2 adults and 2 children. Robin's patience and knowledge of dealing with children with challenging behaviour was brilliant, very calm and encouraging! His teaching and leadership skills were top notch! We will definitely be using the school again and we thank you... More

I was recommended to Sandymouth Surf School by a friend after a conversation about activities for my disabled son. Surfing was something I never thought he would be able to achieve due to his disabilities, but Robin talked through everything with me and soon put me at ease. He arranged parking for me, and had lifeguards ready and waiting to... More

An excellent school. James and Anna really enjoyed their time learning to surf and can't wait to get back next year! Not only did they enjoy it but we were happy in the knowledge that Robin was keeping them safe, allowing us to relax. Robin showed great patience and humour - at times he needed both! The location was second... More

Adrian and the 2 boys Will (9) and Matthew (7) had a number of lessons with Robin whilst on holiday in July. Unlike previous lessons they have had elsewhere we found Robin's groups to be small and intimate, focused on the needs of each individual irrespective of age. Robin has a great personality, is kind, attentive and encouraged both the... More

We came to bude for some surf lessons this summer and found 'sandymouth surf school'. The surf instructor robin ross was wicked, had all new equipment, surf boards with 3 fins so it felt better than the normal swell boards we have used in the past, was a great day. Will 100% return next year, MJ
