“Good instructors - no planning, NO SHOWERS!”

Dolphin Surf School
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We got a good instructor, but it was clear they had not planned anything before we arrived. Being newbies in surfing we were not told to arrive at a time when the tide was right for us - we therefore only got 1,5 hours of surfing before it was too unsafe for us to surf. Also after having finished the surfing lesson, which was good, there was no access to showers. Back at the back yard of the owner of the surf school we were told water was too expensive (even though the charged us 30 pounds pp. for the instruction) .The equipment was old too. We felt a bit cheated after having had such a great experience with the surf school we had in Bude.

I enjoyed every minute of it! Me and hubby went for a half day course, and Alex is really good in teaching us, and very encouraging. Both of us managed to stand on the board and now we regret why we didn't booked a longer course.

Having never surfed before I was a little nervous and didn't want to commit to a full day.

Mark, the owner, was really supportive and allowed us to decide at dinner time if we wanted to stay for the full day - which we did.

By the end of the day we could just about stand up on both feet ... both only for a few seconds. Will definitely be returning for more practice!
