Rhys and Megan gave us such a great beginners surf lesson, and really looked after us and built our confidence. We were quite a mixed group in terms of age and confidence but everyone felt well looked after in the lesson. We had a lesson with a different surf school the day before, and the difference in the instruction / instructors was huge - Harlyn is definitely the place to go - we will be back! Thank you so much.

We have been on a couple of surf lessons before but the guys at harlyn were fantastic. We booked the two day learn to surf course. And came away with a great experience and feeling like our surfing was so Much better thanks to Rhys and Megan who from start to finish made us feel welcome great tips and made everyone feel safe in the water too. Great job guys sure we will be back. 👍

We had a great time! Rhys and Megan were brilliant instructors. Megan really went the extra mile when a couple of our group got a bit battered by a wave or a board and had their confidence knocked, getting them happily back in the water. They were so patient and kind and really wanted to ensure we had loads of fun and came away as converts to surfing (the majority of us being first-timers). Their magic worked as my youngest declared it was the ‘best day of his life’ and wants a surfboard for Christmas even though we live miles from the sea! Harlyn Bay is a stunning setting and very safe. We ranged in age from 9 to young teenagers to parents. Thank you - we loved it and highly recommend it!
