Basically if you’re riding in the whitewater, regardless of how well you think you’re doing, then we’ll help you to get to the next level.

Outback - Morning

So you’re owning the whitewater, riding into the beach with all the style you can muster? The hardest transition in surfing is progressing from riding the whitewater, to getting ‘outback’ in the big stuff and cruising along “green” or unbroken waves just like the pros. With even smaller group sizes than normal, your coach will be paddling out with you to guide you through that first take-off on an unbroken wave. The speed and control you’ll feel is unbelievable, you’ll remember your first wave forever! Once you’ve mastered the take-off you’ll advance on to turning and riding along the wave, really tapping into the raw power of the ocean. The morning session starts at 10am

    Me and some friends went to Newquay last summer and wanted to try surfing for the first time.
    We were all a bit nervous when we met up with head coach Dale at Big Green Surf School, but he soon got us pretty exited. Because Dale only takes small groups of people he really could give us one on one time. It really felt like having a personal coach and thanks to Dales amazing teaching skills you felt pretty confident right away!
    Dale taught us everything we needed to know about surfing and the basic techniques and he said that we would stand up on our first try…yeah right I thought… But I really did!! So thank you again Dale for the awesome surf lesson! I cant wait to come back this summer!

    So if you want to have a really good time and get some serious bad ass surf lessons I highly recommend Dale at the Big Green Surf School!

    Best day ever!!! So I found myself in Newquay visiting some mates and they had decided to go surfing. I had never surfed before so I was super keen… and a bit nervous :\
    My friends had been tipped of by locals that Big Green Surf School was they way to go.
    Our instructors name was Dale and he was an absolute champion!
    We quickly geared up and headed down towards the beach. Once at the water we got easy well instructed steps with good explanations on why you do certain things and also what would happen if you did other things i.e. “wipeout” :)
    We soon hit the water. Dale only works with smaller groups so we got plenty of quality one on one coaching with Dale in between our runs. I had some trouble getting from step 3 to 4 but Dale quickly assessed that a different technique would suite my style of surfing. Very cool! Can’t wait to come back again and continue my surfing adventure!!!

    Wanting to take surf lessons whilst on our fabulous European tour, we were concerned when we saw the sizes of surf groups when we arrived (some of them were taking out 20-30 people!). We were nervous enough, never having surfed before, to just be thrown in the water with a whole heap of other people. Then found Dale at the big green surf school. There were only 8 people in our class and Dale spending one on one time with us all, patiently watching and explaining. Dale said he likes to limit his lessons to smaller groups to take the time and make sure people stand up.
    IT.WAS.AWESOME
    Thank you Dale for the surf, memories and photos.

    Have recently got back from a long weekend in Newquay with my partner and just wanted to say what a great surf lesson we had with Dale. I have had a few lessons around Devon and Cornwall over the years and this was by far the best. Very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Looking forward to getting back down to Fistral in the summer hols!

    Having never surfed before I was slightly apprehensive about my lesson but from the moment I arrive Dale made me feel right at home. I laughed at his optimism when he told me I would be up and riding by the end of the session but he was right. Fantastic experience and a fantastic coach. What a great day. Thanks.

    wow! what a weekend. We came down and stayed at base surf lodge which is attached to big green surf school. We met Dale the head coach at breakfast on our first morning and decided to book a lesson to get the basics and then hire from then on. After the lesson we were so psyched we booked 2 lessons a day for the days we where in Newquay. Surfing is a lot harder than it looks! but super addictive. Dales teaching style is great, he breaks all the information down so well and makes it really easy to grasp, whilst delivering it in a really relaxed but thorough way! having lessons was such a good way to structure our weekend away and it made sure we got to really experience the vibe of Newquay. Big thanks Big Green Surf School. We will be back soon!

    Came to Cornwall having never surfed before and had a great lesson with head coach Dale. Didn’t think I would get to standing in my first lesson but I did! Great fun lesson with a small group so had lots of individual attention. Would highly recommend.

    If you want an amazing surf lesson then look no further than Big Green Surf School! Dale the head coach was great at his job getting us all stood up most of the time in just one session! He was very patient and had seemingly endless techniques for getting us stood up! I will definitely be returning for more! Thanks a lot Big Green Surf School

    What can I say? Im the kind of person that really need some convincing when it comes to sports, but with head coach Dale it became a breeze! Thanks to the small group size, great gear and lots of personal attention I stood up on my first try! Coming along to their surf trip to the Philippines now! Cant recommend this surf school highly enough!
