Excellent surfing lessons for our 2 teenagers in October half term. Winter wetsuits with gloves and boots were provided so nice and warm. Had them confidently standing in first lesson and doing simple turns by second. Lovely staff, would highly recommend

We had such a ‘stupendous’ time coasteering with Croyde Surf Academy. The weather was super grim but that didn’t stop the guys taking us out. Sadie (our instructor) was awesome. Super friendly and we felt really safe with her. It’s great how you build up...More

It's all done through the website in the 'shop' - quite simple, like with most businesses, all the info is in their website . Also, just give them a call, they're always really helpful with any questions.
