Surfing:

Brilliant surfing school, we've been down twice now. Great value, 2 hours in the water with fantastic instructors for a relatively low price. The instructors are really positive and excellent at explaining what to do. They use easy to understand language to explain things, and seem to delight in your successes on the board, however small. I'll be back for a third visit soon.
