“Had an amazing morning paddleboarding with Sander. Took us to some amazing caves and kept us reassured the whole time even with my fear of water! Definitely knew the best spots and really helpful and kept me feeling safe! Would 100% go out further and round to other places next time with more time, thank you for an amazing experience Sander.”

Me & friends did the 2 hr surfing class & it was amazing. Gavin the instructor was so chilled & patient with us but also taught us the basics so well. Wetsuits provided, place to leave your bags etc. We were in the water for ages & had the best time. 2nd time doing it & would definitely book in again, made our weekend!!”

Great Easter Surf Camp this week for my niece Daisy. The instructors were excellent, from daily induction talk to being vigilant in the water, they encouraged proper techniques when using the boards & made it fun at all times. A big thank you to the team, especially Gavin, we couldn’t have asked for more. We’re looking forward to the summer camps this year!”

“We had a private surf lesson with Ash, and I can’t speak highly enough of the whole experience! Top-quality equipment and instruction. Ash made everything so simple, and really made the effort to help each person individually, as well as the group as a whole. I can’t recommend it highly enough, and can’t wait to go again! Thank you!”

“We hired 2 E-bikes and were off around the North coast. Great bikes -easy to use and comfortable. Short intro to how to use it before we left from Ricky. We covered 85 km !! and had a great time. Highly recommend.”

“15 of us had surf lessons with Ash and Charlie on my daughter’s hen weekend. Would definitely recommend Alive surf school. The boys were very patient and encouraging with us and we all felt more confident on the boards at the end. Ricky even treated us to some Prosecco to celebrate when we finished!”

“My kids absolutely loved it! Ricky the coach was so attentive to the kids. Really positive and upbeat with them. He had them all surfing by the end of lesson. My kids were buzzing with excitement afterwards. Lovely everlasting memories made for my children. It’s a massive 5 star for alive surf school and will definitely be returning!”
