“Thanks a million Allie & Greville for a fantastic time at my friend’s birthday last weekend. You made all the organising so easy for me and we had a blast doing the surfing! Allie, you were so patient and encouraging to us in the water and Greville was a fantastic guide! The perfect start to our day. Thanks so much, can’t recommend you highly enough for a group!”

“Cant recommend highly enough. Allie and Greville were so patient with my son & and got him up on his first time and you couldnt wipe the smile of his face. When I asked him did he enjoy it afterwards, he said ‘it is the best thing in my life’!”
