Really patient instructor and explained things really well and clearly. Absolutely brilliant fun, a must do
Have just taken level 1 and 2 in Windsurfing after doing a taster in June.The instructors were all friendly and made every minute enjoyable,they were positive at all times and nothing was too much for them, and they were great with both kids and adults.
I enjoy my time there now that I have become a member,and can windsurf whenever I have some spare time.
Just wanted to thank you all, especially Isaac for giving my husband the wonderful gift of Windsurfing, it seems he was born to do it and I can see so much positive change, happiness and Joy in him because of it.
Wasn’t expecting so much time on the water and to be able to do so much
