Having never even touched a surfboard before and living with an attitude of “when in Rome” we booked a surf lesson at Quiksilver. Booking was made simple by a lovely young lady. We arrived 15 minutes early as advised to get a wetsuit etc etc. Joe was to be our instructor. Having made him aware this was the first time we’d ever touched a surfboard he took it all in his stride. 2 hours went so fast! We went from never touching a surfboard, to learning all about its parts, how to bodyboard one, dry land expert tuition on getting from the prone position into a standing “surfing position” to actually surfing. The buzz was immense. I actually rode some of the surf waves and the feeling of accomplishment was mega. I couldn’t fault Joe, as a person he’s mega cool, to an instructor he was flawless, a lady needed extra attention and he catered for her. He guided me a few times on what o wasn’t doing correctly to then getting me to ride a wave “Shaka” ahh man 2 hours flew by. Now I’m home…. I’ve been searching surfboards! Was also epic watching Joe as he hit a wave or two and made it look effortless.

My boyfriend and I had our first ever surf lesson here with Joe. It was the highlight of our holiday in Cornwall and we had a fantastic time. The facilities in the surf school were great as well. Joe was really friendly and explained everything well, couldn’t have asked for a better instructor.

I had a two-hour beginner surf lesson this morning with instructor Joe, and it was amazing fun! Joe gave us all just the right information to make the session super fun, keep us safe and learn this fab activity. He gave helpful tips throughout the session and I think pretty much all of us managed at least once to stand up and surf into the beach! It was such a brilliant morning, and I only wish I lived nearer the coast to keep up with this new found skill! THANKS JOE :-)
