I will start from the beginning of the booking we emailed asking questions that were answered by Gary with a very fast response.
On the day of arrival we had pre booked a half day surf lesson for 4 children aged from 10 to 16 years old and 2 adults. We were made to feel welcome, we were issued wetsuits, boots, gloves and hoods. The changing facilities were absolutely fine then just a short walk from the centre to the beach.
We were issued surf boards and that was that the lesson started on the beach running through safety and the basics of surfing. Then we were in the water the coaching was brilliant always there helping and taking pics.
We will be returning next year and I would say we done the half a day option and this was around 3 hours but I think we should have booked 2x half days.
This is the only surfing any of us done and I think most of us managed to stand up.
The staff were brilliant and the location and was also brilliant.

Thank Gary H

My 2 daughters (8 & 10 years) and I had lessons with Gary and another teacher, whose name I can't remember. They were both excellent. We all stood up early on the lesson which amazed me. The clear instruction and the right boards for beginners helped a lot.
I can't wait to go again, I'm completely hooked on surfing and 100% recommend Woolacombe Surf Centre.
