The guys are always nice and helpful, they have good equipment and the sea is very calm most of the time making it very easy to learn to paddle board.

Booked a surfing lesson for a birthday present for my boyfriend. We both thoroughly enjoyed it you couldn't stop us from grinning throughout the whole lesson. Antony was brilliant taking us through each step and showing us what to do. We will definitely be booking another lesson. Thanks Sorted Surf for a brilliant couple of hours.

Booked for private lesson with my two daughters aged 12 and 14. Although there wasn't much surf we learned a lot and really enjoyed the session. Our instructor, James, was a great coach and was experienced enough to tailor the session to our abilities and the conditions.

My sister and I decided to give paddle boarding a try and found 'Sorted' on Boscombe seafront. The staff were friendly, helpful and supportive. We had a really small group in out lesson- just three of us but not one of us fell in! It was great fun and would highly recommend the activity and the surf school

The school was very well equipped with safe and varied equipment which helped keep us warm and ensure we had a fun lesson; whatever the weather conditions would be. We found the instructors and shop staff all very helpful and look forward to coming back to hire some equipment now we have improved are surfing skills so much

Booked in for a beginners surf lesson, and it was great fun! Our instructor James was excellent, really friendly, helpful and encouraging. I'd never been surfing before and really enjoyed it. Highly reccommended.
