This is such a fun place for all ages - everyone makes you feel welcome and there is a great pizza cafe next door so you can replenish your energy levels after the lesson

A very friendly centre and the impressive instructor John chatted to everyone and made us all feel welcome and at ease. He had me popping up on the board long before the end of my first ever surfing lesson.

Had booked a family lesson which we had today. 5 of us including kids of 15,13 and 8 years old. I think the best way to describe what we all thought is how we felt after, buzzing and all of us wanting to do it again. The guys here are great. Steve was a great teacher and everyone was so helpful. Big thanks to Charlie too for coming over to look after Riley. Emma the manager took some great pics of us and nothing was too much trouble. We got some great waves, huge smiles and had a whole lot of fun. Oh and great pizzas next door afterwards!! Highly recommend this place for any family. Thank you all, we will be back!!

My son has had four surf lessons with these guys and has loved every minute. The support when he first started and up to now, is faultless. The hire kit and facilities are clean, up-to-date and spacious. Well looked after by all the instructors, brilliant sense of humour and amazing passion!
