The Lowry Party
We came down to you on Monday afternoon, (The Lowry party) and I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for a fantastic afternoon out in the surf and the rain. The children loved it, Amelie wanted to buy a board the next day. Us oldies enjoyed it, but ached a little the next day, more fitness required methinks.
Surfing is something I'd always wanted to do and never quite got around to, and to look around and see all of us in the sea clinging to boards with a big smile was fantastic. Thanks to all of you for making it thoroughly enjoyable and easy to learn. We'll be back now as new converts, hopefully we'll learn a lot more from you, as I sit here in my London office remembering that day, I'm smiling.

Dave taught/refreshed Shaun, Morgan and myself in the ways of the waves. His dedication and tenacity is splendid. His patience, encouragement and commitment to getting all of us standing and surfing to shore was brilliant. Thoroughly recommended, excellent value for money, and a really nice bloke too. Hope to go back for more later in the year.

Jacob and Anthony
We came down at Easter and Jacob age 11 (observed by dad Anthony) became totally hooked on surfing. He had a lesson with Dave which was fantastic - Dave was so easy to get on with and was a fantastic teacher . We will be back this next term break and have recommended you to people far and wide.

What a fantastic 2 hours we all had. By the end of then lesson we could all manage to stand on the surf board, looking rather like the opening scene from Hawaii Five -O! The instructor was brilliant & very patient with all of us. Will definitely be booking again in the summer. Thank you so much!

We both just wanted to say thanks firstly to Pat for such an enjoyable lesson, Paul wasn't expecting it as it was a birthday present, which is now known as the "best birthday present ever". Pat was informative, patient and made the day brilliant. You were all so welcoming from the minute i called to book, to the time we left. Paul is absolutely hooked now and can't wait to get back to Bantham to learn more. A brilliant day, and we will recommend you to everyone. I will get round to uploading pics soon. Thanks again - from a new Surf Widow, jo and the hooked boyfriend Paul

"Thank you so much for Noah's birthday surf lesson. All the kids had such a fantastic time & we were thrilled to see them all stand up & ride the waves! To quote one of the children: "It was the best birthday party on the planet!" You gave all the children so much time & attention and you really went out of your way to make everything extra special for the Birthday Boy. Thanks guys, you are stars!"

"What a wonderful new experience you gave our Grandson, Jasper. His first ever experience on a surf board and with your care and enthusiastic support he was standing on his board, a thrill for us all. He is now totally hooked! l noticed the way you encouraged and helped the more timid new surfers and didn't give up until you had them confidently on their boards. You both have a special gift!! Thank you. You will be seeing lots more of us."

"The surf lesson our son Joe, friend Joe and daughter Laura had was the highlight of their holiday. Excellent tuition with a real passion to share the love of surfing. The boys are totally hooked and we hope to drive down from Hampshire for the day before the end of the summer. We will definitely be basing our holiday around Bantham next year."

"Just a thank you for taking the time to progress Alex and Dan's surfing today. They were very impressed with the level of attention and guidance you gave them, and wished they had discovered you sooner. They have surfed at three other schools in the UK, and consider they have learnt more with you today than at all the others combined.

We will definitely come back to you next year, and wish you every success with Bantham."

"Hi, just wanted to say that the lesson my daughter (and friend) had a few weeks ago was the highlight of the holiday for her. We, the parents, still can't believe you got them standing up in one lesson! Great confidence boost for her. Excellent value for money."
