A really great organization and a very fun thing to do

I had a great time this weekend having my first ever surfing lesson. The instructors were very friendly and very good at teaching. With their help I actually got stood up a few times which is apparently unusual for an adult beginner. It's a real thrill moving quickly through the water on a surfboard. They go faster than I expected but it's not so fast that you get worried. There were a few other absolute beginners in the group I was in but the instructors make sure they give everyone individual attention so everyone was laughing and getting a lot out of the session.

Great time at Sandown Bay

I never believed I would get on a surfboard, let alone stand up - but these guys made it happen... and then again with a stand-up paddleboard! Very knowledgeable, dedicated, understanding, all about safety and so friendly and helpful - great time at Sandown Bay today and I will be back! And they do ladies' classes - nice touch - I think my other half will be in contact... thank you Chris and the boys!

iSurf are brilliant, I can't recommend them enough

I booked two beginner surf lessons with iSurf and was massively impressed by them. The tutor's Baz and Henry were extremely approachable, helpful and made sure they spent equal time helping everyone in the group. My lessons were during the summer holidays and despite being alone adult in a lesson of primary children and their parents, I was made to feel totally welcome. I was mostly tutored by Henry who clearly loved his job (why wouldn't he?!). He offered great tips and advice and before long I was up and carving waves in no time!
