We had never surfed before, and your courses were a great introduction. As a result we're both hooked and are looking forward to coming back and surfing some more.

Thank you very much for teaching us how to surf. I really enjoyed it and I am sure I'll do it again some time. Before I came I thought surfing was really difficult but I think I got the hang of it quite well.

Thanks very much for a great holiday in Lacanau, France. Everything worked out just right, great waves, great weather and great company. I really enjoyed myself and was pleased to be able to improve my surfing with your advice and guidance.

Dear all at Surf South West. Thanks so much for the surfing lessons, I am now hooked.


I would just like to thank you and your instructors for the wonderful experience that I had surfing this weekend. I really enjoyed every minute of the 5 sessions that I attended. All of the instructors that I came into contact with were very friendly and enthusiastic, and always encouraging. I found the whole centre very well organised and efficiently run. I am glad I made the choice to surf with you. I definitely felt my surfing improve over the few sessions, and I think that I have caught the surfing 'bug'.

I would just like to say a big thank you for a great adrenaline filled week, surfing was hard work but very addictive!

A big thank you to you and your team for an excellent couple of days surfing. I started off slowly but was soon catching (and riding) dozens of waves. Your technique of positioning and launching absolute beginners into waves probably showed them in one lesson what the untutored take about a month to work out!

Thank you SO much for my surfing yesterday, I had absolutely so much fun. It was awesome, and absolutely worth it, going home, I had a permanent grin on my face! I'll never forget the feeling ever, thank you all so much, and for your patience.

Just want to say a huge thanks for your professional lessons when I brought my school kids for a surf last July. They loved the surf and nearly all of then have vowed to return!

Just a note to thank you and your colleagues for a great surfing day yesterday. The event went down a storm with our clients and we appreciated your professional yet relaxed approach to our group. I am already being urged to start thinking about the next time!

Thanks for your excellent teaching of surfing on Sunday, it was the first time for me and I hope to do it again.

Just wanted to drop you and the guys a note to say thanks for a wicked time in Lacanau last week was great to sit back and have someone else do all the organising!.

We just wanted to say a big thank you to all those involved in our surfing day with you. We had a terrific time and even those who were really nervous and had never surfed before came out of the sea loving it! In fact we loved it so much we're planning a weekend trip down to Croyde in the next couple of months, to enhance our new found surfing skills. Once again thank you so much, we will definitely recommend you to anyone else we know who wants to learn to surf.

With thanks for two weeks of fantastic surfing with excellent instruction - a great holiday. Looking forward to seeing you again

Just wanted to say thank you for an absolutely fabulous, fun filled, surf camp in France. It was one hell of a combination to beat - great people, great location, great food and wine. You guys really made it a fab holiday so thank you so much. Looking forward to a repeat in Costa Rica

Our whole family had surfing lessons and we all really enjoyed it. The instructors were both really good. It was a really good introduction to surfing and I can't wait to do some more!

Just a quick note to say thank you again for a top week. We all had a wicked time and enjoyed every second we spent, both in the water and out of it. I am well on the way to buying myself my first board and wet suit.

Many thanks for a truly great introduction to surfing!! We are officially hooked and will be back again. Thanks for your inspiration and encouragement.

I imagine this is only one of many letters you guys will have this week from people still on a high after their week in Lanzarote. We had the best time ...

I am writing to thank you for the surfing. It was one of the best things that I have ever done!

Thank you very much for helping us on our recent surf trip. I enjoyed it very much and have tried to surf before, but found it a lot easier this time!

Thanks for organizing a great holiday. Hope you all have a good break and see you next year!

Thanks for a fantastic holiday in Lanzarote. I had a great time. I was a little nervous of doing the trip on my own but the travel and social arrangements were so well made I shouldn't have worried!


I just wanted to officially thank you for a brilliant week at the surf school. All the instructors are really top guys and it was so much more than I'd expected. Sometimes extreme sports environments can be very clique-ey and intimidating, but I found everybody really welcoming and friendly, which was brilliant, as I was there on my own. I can't wait to come back down for another bash at it!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing time we had with Surf South West, we loved every minute. Everyone made us feel very welcome and the tuition was fantastic, we are already planning to return again next year

Thanks to all for an excellent trip to Lanzarote, I'm sure it will not be my last! I met some fantastic people and made great friends. You all have a large hand in getting me hooked on surfing!

Thank you for a great day surfing, hope to come back soon for another lesson!

I spent a week with you guys on the mid-week special and would like to say big thanks to you and all the team. I well and truly have the surfing bug!

Just a quick note to say thank you for a fabulous time last weekend. We thought the course was absolutely excellent and that the tea was better than we get at home! We went back happy men after managing to stand on the boards, albeit for only few seconds but this was enough to get us hooked!

Thanks to all for a fantastic weekend and your patient and good humored instruction. The feeling when I managed to get it together on more than once occasion was one of real pleasure and satisfaction. It's only reinforced my decision to keep coming again and again. Brilliant!

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week I had a couple of lessons with Surf South west on Croyde beach and would like to pass on a massive thanks. Prior to the first lesson, I had never been on a board, in fact my wetsuit had never even been damp! With your help I managed to progress amazingly quickly i.e.: I didn't eat too much sand and I caught the majority waves I went for. I now have the surfing bug and can't wait to get out there again. I really can't thank you guys enough for the easy going, fun and ultimately very effective lessons.

I was on your surf course last week with my friends and I just wanted to let you know that we had a really excellent time. The tuition was great and we just wanted to thank you and all the instructors. We are totally hooked on surfing now and will definitely try to keep going as often as we can.

I have just come back from the surfing trip in France and just wanted to say what a fantastic time I had!! Tracey and Kieran were brilliant and really improved my surfing and I met such a great group of people, I havent had that much fun in ages!!!! Thanks again and I cant wait to go on the next one!!

I would like to say a big thank you for an enjoyable day surfing. I never thought that I would ever be able to attempt such a sport but with your help and my drive I have proved myself wrong!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a wonderful trip. I have not laughed quite as much in a long time, and I cannot figure out if the aches around my mid drift are from laughing or surfing! I definitely feel like I made some progress this holiday thanks to the top tips you gave me.

Thanks so much for all your help in organizing our trip to Famara, Lanzarote. All the travel and car hire went like clockwork and we had an amazing time. All in all we could not have asked for a better week and will definitely be going back for more!

We have just got back from a few days in North Devon, and while we were there managed to fit in a couple of surf lessons at your school. We had never surfed before, and your courses were a great introduction. As a result were both hooked and are looking forward to coming back and surfing some more. Thanks to our instructors who gave us loads of their time and much needed advice.
Katherine & Nathan

We wanted to say thank you for all your help and encouragement last week. Learning to surf was an amazing experience and we area all well and truly hooked now! By our last lesson all three of us were standing up and just starting to look like surfers. Croyde Bay is a fantastic location for a surf school and we are determined to return soon to perfect our moves!
Louise, Sarah and Jess

Just wanted to say thanks for another great holiday, had a really good time. Expect to see me on a Costa Rica trip as soon as I've saved enough.

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone at Surf South West for the excellent long weekend we had learning to surf. We all had a really fun time and also surpassed our expectations in how much progress we made in the 2 1/2 days. Very impressed with the instructors we had over the weekend - they were all really helpful, positive and encouraging all the time.

Apart from being absolutely shattered, I loved every minute of it, and could recommend your surf school to anybody. Even when the guys were instructing other people they had a watchful eye on everybody else and offered little tips to accelerate the learning process. I can't speak highly enough of the team.


Thank you so much for a great weekend. I really enjoyed the surfing and can't wait for the next time!

Thank you for the surfing tuition on Wednesday. I really learnt a lot from it. I now see why it is so addictive. I feel that I have progressed with my water confidence abilities. Again, thank you and I hope that if we visit again that it will be as enjoyable as the first.

Thanks so much for a fantastic weekend - we're all still absolutely and completely stoked about our first surf lessons! It still brings a smile to my face every time I think about how much fun we had!

Just a quick word of thanks for your part in making our time in Lanzarote such a great success. We had a brilliant time which exceeded both our expectations. We were both impressed by your instructors approach; they both struck an excellent balance between providing professional coaching guidance whilst also being very approachable, encouraging and supportive with respect to their offers of help. We both feel we benefited considerably given our lack of ability. I personally feel that I progressed more in my time with them in five days in the water than I have over the last six months faffing around trying to teach myself!

Thanks so much for being such excellent hosts over the weekend. We all had a superb time learning to surf.

I would like to thank the instructors I had on Tuesday they were brilliant in teaching me the basics and making me confident in the sea, and advancing my new found skill and love for surfing. I am returning to Croyde next year for a week/weekend course with Surf South West as I enjoyed the experience so much.

I really enjoyed the French trip well organised, relaxed, lovely people and great beach

Just returned home from our holiday that involved a weeks surfing in Croyde. We booked five 2hr lessons in the quiet week at the end of July and had the time of our lives. Thank you for your help and support, the kids would not have advanced as far as they did without your school. I can't wait until next time. Your tutors were all of a high standard and helped us all enormously!

Hi, I was at your surf school a couple of weeks ago and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I was really impressed with the instructors. They were all approachable and knew their stuff. Please pass on my thanks and I will be back!

Hey ya Surf South West, just thought I'd thank the team, especially Issi & Andy for their brilliant surfing tuition it was much appreciated. We will be back for more lessons next summer for sure, if not sooner!
Many thanks love Rach x x x

Just a quick message to say thanks for all your care and attention! We had a fantastic time and are definitely hooked.... I don't know why I waited so long to take lessons and would recommend Surf South West to anyone who's ever fancied a go at surfing..... We plan to be back in the water in the very near future (we've had enough of the 9-5 already!) Big thanks,
Helen & Sophie

Dear All, hows it goin? Sorry for taking so long to send this wee note. However, just wanted to say thank you for the fun week of lessons and fab weather, so thanks :) You now have us spending our entire student loans on surf gear and petrol in an attempt to take us to somewhere with waves. Probably see you all next year, thanks again,
Aoife and Aoife (aka Pixie)

Hi Scott, Tom, OJ & everyone else. Thanks for an absolutely fantastic weekend's surf instruction! We both had an amazing time and felt right pleased with ourselves. Take care,
Jackie & Melissa

Hi guys, just wanted to say a big thank you to Scott, Tom, OJ and John for all their help on our weekend with you guys in Croyde. We had a wicked time and will definitely be down again in the next couple of weeks for some more sun and surfing! Hopefully see you then! Cheers,
Carly, Claire, Helen & Louisa

To all at Surf South West, I just wanted to say thank you for a really great lesson. i was on the 11.30 half day on Saturday 15th July, and i booked myself and my boyfriend on. We both really enjoyed it, and he loved the suprise, so thanks for making that possible. Thanks especially to Lorenzo, who was great. Hope to come and try it again soon, I will be recommending it to all my friends! Cheers,

I wanted to say thanks for a great day on Saturday - all the boys really enjoyed themselves despite the small waves.
