Liam and Will provided great instruction and helpful safety advice. They got me standing after 1 lesson and were great at sharing their time with everyone on the lesson. They gave me the confidence to rent a board and go out again.

Yeh I’d say you’d still enjoy it. In our group there was one guy who had had a few lessons so one of the guys spent more time with him whilst the other 2 were with the rest of us who had never tried it
