This is not for the faint-hearted, but the body-boarding is great fun and, although not easy, all our party managed it quite well, ages ranging from 7 to 73!! The difficult bit is trying to stand up, but you are helped by the excellent instructors...More

Well run, instructors are a bit hit and miss though with some better and more attentive than others. Hot Tubs to warm up on a chilly day are a great addition.

2 dads and a 8,7 & 6 year old. Great fun on the body boards. The instructor was really great, taking the kids if they were nervous and making sure that they were safe. He really injected passion and made the day! Thanks Ryan!
