Adam was a fab instructor, explaining everything clearly & concisely but making sure we had loads of fun on a very windy November afternoon. He was very patient and calm and ensured that we all came away very pleased with ourselves! Thank you!

Family Surf Lesson

I took my 2 older teenage kids as a surprise last week and they loved it. I am in my early 50s and was by far the oldest in the group, and probably had the most fun! Adam our instructor, was so patient, fun and easy to relate to and I couldn't thank him enough for making a truly memorable family day out for us all!

Had a fantastic SUP waves lesson with Adam. Maximised time out on the water without clock watching like some other surf schools I’ve used. Adam was great instructor; friendly and keen to help me improve. Thanks!
