"Great time we had today by our group, Sally was fantastic, so encouraging - thank you, cannot recommend enough - definitely worth having ago!"

-Joanne Bremner


"If you're thinking of trying surfing, just do it with Surf Northumberland, it's amazing fun! I took my boys to a group lesson today with sally. She is great at her job and so lovely. She explains things clearly but doesn't spend too much time on the sand. It's a great balance of teaching and doing. We can't wait to book another lesson! Thank you so much."

"We watched from the beach as our 9-yr-old granddaughter and her friends had a ball out on the waves! Sally's excellent equipment kept them warm and her great instruction had them all up on their boards riding waves by the end of their part! Excellent fun and sense of achievement for them all."
