As a complete novice and somewhat disabled with osteo-arthritis, I was worried about how much I could participate but the instructors were brilliant and helped me to experience as much as possible of the thrill of riding a wave.

We went for a surfing lesson with 3 adults and 14 kids. The instructors were fab and the main one looked exactly how we expected an Ozzy surf dude to look! Everything was well organised and the leaders were very friendly! Thanks

Hi, We only go out to waist deep water and fully qualified lifeguards are with you the whole time, so you would be fine to come for a surf lesson. Many thanks Sam
