    "I finally got round to taking my first surfing lesson and so glad I chose Gary's Surf School. From the warm welcome "we'll soon put a smile on your dial" at the beginning , Gary and his team are super friendly and genuinely enjoy what they do. Grab a coffee or something to eat upstairs at Ta Da afterwards."

    "Gary's surf school is incredible. Gary and his instructors are super friendly and know their stuff. I'm still new to surfing and was surfing waves all day with my instructor. I went two days in a row and will definitely be back again. The surf spot in front of the shop is said to have the best waves in the world for people learning to surf. You can't miss this experience."

    "Very laid back place with experienced staff. You start off doing a dry run on the beach and then there's one instructor to two surfers wannabe's in the water. The tuition is very reasonable and includes a wet suit and board rental for an hour the next time you come. I had such fun and I think we all stood the first time in. So very impressed. I didn't do so well the second time around, but had a bunch of fun. Tadah, the restaurant is just above for something warm to eat and drink afterwards!"
