    Can’t praise these guys enough, everyone was very helpful and professional. My son and I had a great lesson in the rain- 2 hours flew by and my son was up and surfing by the end. We would defintely do this again with Hunters – my son wanted to come back the next week (unfortunately its a 10hour round trip otherwise we would be regulars!)

    hunters surf school is the best one we could of picked. Everybody there is so nice and they don’t treat you like a student but like a friend. They also teach you very well, I feel so much more confident now about surfing. I love it!

    Our daughter Lily has enjoyed every second out on the water and each time has gained confidence each time. A place where you don’t feel like a customer but a friend. Fun, friendly and encouraging. Will return again and again.

    Had a great early morning lesson with Ollie for the family – Mum, 14 yr daughter, 12 yr son and 8 yr daughter – while 2 yr old son and I made sand castles. All standing at end of hour. Excellent photos which will enhance the memories for years to come.

    Fantastic surf school –

    The Hunter surf school has everything you’ll need with lots of different alternatives in terms of how you wish to construct your lesson. Our instructor was Enrique who is absolutely brilliant – he explains everything really well and gives you so much encouragement. To top it all off, Drew (the resident photographer) produces some unbelievable pictures which really captures the moment – we will be back!!

    Having never surfed before I was both nervous and excited. Whilst on holiday in Woolacombe me and my boyfriend thought ‘why not’. We’re so glad we did! Hunter surf school were so nice and so was their in house photographer. He took some lovely photos of us and we have a great memory of the trio to keep forever :) or until the next time we are in the area!

    I have used Hunter Surf twice now for surfing lessons and have to say that they provide an excellent lesson. They are really friendly and positive and offer great tips to improve. The added benefit it that you can buy photos taken by their resident pro photographer which are a great takeaway to remember your time there. I highly recommend them and will be visiting them again next summer for a refresh!

    Our youth group members had a fabulous time out in the September waves, doing their thing and I’m chuffed to say that they said it was the best trip they’ve ever been on ever! And you were part of that experience. You helped make that happen.

    I want to thank all of you for being so welcoming to us and for making our experience so rich – I’m hoping to make this an annual trip for us as it was so popular – all the boys talked about on the way home was what a fab time they’d had.

    My daughter had a fantastic lesson with these guys. She was a pur beginner and the young guy teaching her group was great with all of them, some were teenagers and some were adults. She would love to back again if we are in the area again.
