Really great session. My 9 year old loved it and was standing up on her board really quickly thanks to Sadie and Emily who were brilliant. They provide really good winter suits so she didn’t feel cold even after 2 hours in. Would definitely recommend.

It's all done through the website in the 'shop' - quite simple, like with most businesses, all the info is in their website . Also, just give them a call, they're always really helpful with any questions.
