Surf Testimonials

I last had a lesson with Perfect Day in 2006 and wanted to make sure that I was booked in with them again.
My two girlfriends and I had two great lessons with Ross, who was so patient and informative.
We were of varying abilities and the sea got a little rough on the second day but we never felt uncomfortable or out of our depth. A great experience that we would all love to repeat.
I would highly recommend.
