Epic Surf School Review from Daily Mail & the Independent
The summer of 2009 was a busy one for us. But getting the London contingency out of their comfort zone is rarely a challenge. We had a few lovely families come down from some a couple of publications whose names might be familiar to you. So here are the kind words their said in their surf schools review about us.
“The following day, it’s wet again, but that doesn’t matter. On a trip to Mawgan Porth, surf dude Pete, of King Surf, gives us a lesson. Having tried surfing before, I know his efforts are doomed, but it’s great fun. The culinary stakes are raised again with a delicious lunch at Fifteen.
Home-time dawns, but not before we walk the dog one last time at Mawgan Porth and hole up in the cafe for one last mug of tea. Yes, it still rains in Cornwall, but I won’t leave it another ten years to return.”
For the whole review, have a look at the Daily Mail’s travel section on their website.
“Despite my incompetence, our sojourn provided the most fun that we’ve had in a very long time. Surfing (or even just trying to) doesn’t half get you fit, and it’s exhilarating to spend so much time in the sea, even if you do end up drinking most of it. And if your teacher is the effervescent Pete Abell, owner of Kingsurf at Mawgan Porth (01637 860091; kingsurf.co.uk), you’ll end up with kids with serious surfing addictions.”
