We booked a group lesson, but it ended up just being the two of us, so we had a private lesson - guess that's the bonus of going out of peak season! Windy was a fantastic teacher (we were both total novices). He put real effort into making sure that we both stood up, which we both did in the... More

With a group of six from a 10 year old to three fifty somethings, we had a fantastic time over our two days of surfing. Windy and the team were all so knowledgeable and patient and got us all up on the boards. Two of the group had surfed before and the teaching was tailored to show the more experienced... More

Windy brought his mobile surf school over to Treyarnon Bay recently for a 40th birthday party that I organised for a large group. He brought surf boards and wet suits for all our surfers, he even made sure he bought wet suit booties to keep the kids warm - so thoughtful! He arranged one lesson in the morning for 10... More

This is a mobile school, so they meet you at whatever beach they say. We were at Harlyn Bay, just outside Padstow. Easy to deal with, friendly and reassuring. The tuition was excellent, Simon was our instructor. Good pre-water training and understanding of the dangers of the sea. Then one to one work in the water. Simon stood the whole... More

Fantastic! best points: all about personal development rather than keeping up with others in the group, loads of time in the water, very caring, and really good value for money, we'll be back!

We booked a 5 day surf school for our daughter who is 8. Windy really looked after her for the whole time. He picks the beach according to the tide and wind conditions so you are always guaranteed of a safe but fun surf. He is in the water for much longer than the other schools. I would highly recommend... More

Brilliant introduction to surfing. Windy and the other instructors were knowledgeable, patient and supportive and really worked with the whole group to try to get everybody up on their feet. I would definitely recommend them to anybody irrespective of ability.

Booked a lesson for my 9 year old and myself. Both of us loved it. Incredibly friendly instructors, very knowledgeable about the local conditions / beaches. Even managed to get an unfit almost 50 year old up on the board. Would recommend and will return asap.

We booked the surfing lessons last minute with windy and his team. The structure of the lesson was great and the instructor was fantastic. A top bloke who really did get to know you. Considering the amount in the group he remembered everyone's name which was a real nice touch. Absolutely excellent and would highly recommend.

Every time we holiday in the Padstow area we book lessons with Windy and his team. OUr boys learned surfing with him during a Easter holiday week and had lots of fun to learn "the trade". The younger one only eight and Windy kept a special eye on him for safety reasons. The boys are now good surfers and can'... More
