Had the most brilliant time with these guys. Would recommend them to everyone. My daughter and I took a five-day course in July and laughed our way through. In fact, we loved it so much we both came back again in September and this time I brought my son along too. I’ve already booked my accommodation nearby for more surfing in 2021. Steve, Chris and their team were so patient and encouraging, they made me believe I could do it and I did! Thank you, Global boarders, you are terrific. So glad I found you.
