We went kayaking with Matt and we had the best time on the water. Matt was able to tell us so many stories and sealife details. He also showed us a lot of caves and we were lucky to see a seal, lots of jellyfish and even some mackerels. Thank you Matt for making it so much fun and taking the time!

Had a surf lesson with Ian, who was a skilled and thoughtful teacher, encouraging and hilarious. Made all of us first time surfers ranging from mid-forties to seven, extremely comfortable, counting it as one of our favorite days on a family holiday. Thank you to the team!

Another amazing lesson with Justin in Hayle 😊 He’s very good at guiding and helping you better your kayaking skills and he is very knowledgeable about a lot of things! I would highly recommend Justin, this is my 3rd lesson with him and have booked my fourth, can’t wait 😁

A fun paddleboarding adventure on a beautiful afternoon at Mullion Cove. Stephen was a great guide, who looked after our mixed ability group well and taught us lots of new techniques. We saw seals and cormorants at Mullion Island and enjoyed a bit of complementary coasteering, swimming through one of the many caves along this stretch of cliff.

Went coasteering with Global Boardriders and Chris with my two sons, 12 and 15. It was a private booking, so just the four of us. It made for a great day out and was tailored to our abilities. Loads of interesting info and a really unique perspective on the coastline. It was the boy's favourite day of the trip, and my youngest was very happy he'd made the jumps. Highly recommended, I would do it again.

Great experience. We paid £40 for a 2 hour beginner lesson including equipment hire for our son. First and foremost we had a friendly, welcoming service from the lady in the reception area and we were really pleased that the 2 hour timer began when the lesson started, once on the beach! The instruction was a thorough induction to surfing! inparticular a shout out to a great teacher Louie! To top it all off they included a free hour of surf board use after the lesson. My son thoroughly enjoyed it!
