I stayed in Newquay for one week and surfed for the first time in my life. Due to the small group and enormous dedication of the instructors (Tom and Dale) I managed to stand up and take some waves on my own in only four hours! I really enjoyed my time at Adams surfschool!!

Booked a private beginners lessons for my family on Friday, had an absolutely brilliant time. Our instructor Matt was great, very professional and made it fun for all of us. My 8 years old son loved it. We went back next day for wet suits and boards hire. Highly recommend. Thank you Dave for organising it for us.

Booked 4x 2hr lessons for our children (Taylor 15, Aaron 13) to learn surfing and bodyboarding. They had a wonderful time and wanted to carry on but we ran out of days. Simon was a great instructor, could not have asked for better. Great value for money. Highly recommended and will be returning. Thanks Dave for all your help and... More
