What our clients say ...

Just returned from 3 beginner session back to back on 24th & 25th Nov 2020... as a beginner i was unsure what to expect but i have to say from booking, meeting the instructor on a pre arranged beach to getting on the waves, everything was incredibly well organised. All the gear was provided and i had a brilliant time, was taken through the whole process, including surf etiquette and reading the waves etc.. we achieved so much more than i ever hoped to and had a brilliant time. The weather and the waves were spectacular!! Finally a big thank you to Chris, my instructor.. what a top class guy, nothing was too much trouble, endlessly patient and a great teacher..Global Boarders Surf Co. highly recommended*****
