"Had a lesson with Alfie this afternoon , for myself my dad and my daughter , we are all beginners and he was excellent with us .
Knowledgeable and fun would highly recommend this surf school to anybody in the area.
For the price everything is provided for you and it’s a 2hr lesson , incredibly good value for money. All of the staff were friendly and at no point do you feel silly or uncomfortable.
Hopefully be back soon!"
