Visited yesterday with a group of work mates. Brilliant instruction from Richie and all of us managed to get stood up and ride a wave, what an awesome buzz! Highly recommend this school for beginners and those looking for a good laugh!

4 of us beginners went for a lesson with Richie, who's a really decent bloke. Friendly and helpful, the lesson was excellent, helped by perfect beginner wave conditions, good surf boards, warm wetsuits, and sunshine... it is Yorkshire after all.

I can't praise Richie highly enough! Excellent tuition, very friendly and very professional with massive amount of enthusiasm that gave my daughter the confidence to keep trying to catch those waves. All the gear required suit, boots & the board is provided.
