We had three morning lessons - Mum, Dad and 2 boys (8 and 11). What a fantastic and memorable experience! - The weather was pretty changeable to say the least and Steve stayed in touch by text to arrange the morning meeting point each day. The gear was fab (boards, wetsuits, boots) and the instruction was confidence inspiring and GREAT fun.
