Year 6 Westcliff Primary School - Whitby
"Our surf lessons last year were a huge success with children and parents alike. Sam is a natural teacher, and as such the children made outstanding progress in terms of ability and confidence. There was no question about whether we would rebook this year! Year 6 describe it as simply the best experience they have ever had!"

Hi Sam, Ok here''s the thing! - three very happy kids all talking at once about their surfing experiences - pure magic! Job done! We thank you! Steph & Jack

Finally standing on a surfboard!
I really recommend learning to surf with Whitby Surf school. I had been out with a few friends trying to surf in the past but never got up on the board. After a 2 hour lesson with Sam, I actually managed to stand up and caught a wave, amazing! It was great fun, even in mid November. I was provided with a really good wetsuit and never felt the cold. It was a fantastic experience and Sam was a great tutor, really helpful and informative. Will definitely be back for more lessons in the new year.

Best Weekend
What an awesome way to spend a morning in Whitby! We only hired board''s and wetsuits and headed out into the water on our own; but this doesn''t mean Sam wasn''t more than helpful and accommodating! Nothing was too much and Sam pointed us in the right direction for the best surf and as the morning went on let us know how the currents were changing. The suits were incredibly toasty and we stayed in far longer than we imagined we would! Great value for money and great guy! Thank''s Sam!

SUP Safari
What a heavenly night!!!! It was blissful in Runswick tonight! Lovely calm sea and the sun even popped out! Paddling with you is so therapeutic and such a good giggle Sam! Thanks! Hx

I loved it and I'm hooked
I decided to have a lesson with Sam at Whitby Surf School after a few (unsuccessful) trips to the coast with friends. Their good intentions and promises of "I’ll show you the ropes” soon disappear when they get in the water and the waves are good. Cue, much trial and error on my part and no actual progress. Sam was really helpful from the get go. With a no nonsense, back to basics approach it became apparent that this was no land based , theory heavy lesson. We were in the water and catching waves (albeit laid down!) within 10 minutes. I don’t know where the two and half hours went but think it may have been the fastest of my life. I emerged from the sea at the end of the lesson grinning from ear to ear. I caught some waves, disappeared under some others, but finished the session confident enough in myself to go out next time and progress to the next level. I loved it and I’m hooked! Thanks

Best experience
I went SUP wtith Sam last year and was so excited with the experience that I promised myself to bring my family this year.. They completely agreed with me: Yorkshire is the most beautiful place we have ever visited but enjoying these wonderful off-the beaten track landscapes paddling up and down such a peaceful quaint river was the best part of our trip for sure. To top it all, Sam, our dearest friend, who proved himself as the best teacher and guide. A must in Whitby if you are around, Thank you Sam for everything!!

Fun for all
It was one thing I knew I could do as a Mum with teenage sons (without embarrassing them!) And on the day it was beautiful weather but not a wave insight so we went on the river - totally beautiful - and they had loads of fun - I could relax knowing Sam had a good grip on anything they might get up to and just enjoy the stunning setting. Fabulous - now we''re keeping an eye on the forecast to get back for the next challenge. Great set up - really well organized and very accessible - thanks Sam

Life changing
As a 45 yr old u might be forgiven for not trying new things and I''m so glad I had a go. The feeling of achievement is like passing your driving test (remember that!) and in would never have believed that even though the water is cold and it was raining we were warm and flying high. Sam is an incredible chap - down to earth and inspiring and somehow within a few minutes you feel like you''ve known him all your life. We were nervous at first and his great sense of humour and passion for the water and the spiritual connection of being in the sea took away our fears - we had a fantastic day out and the kids were over the moon that they were standing within an hour of starting (we didn''''''''t believe Sam''s personal promise till we caught it on camera). Us oldies take a bit longer but to be honest it was enough to ride a wave. Wishing Sam all the best with his venture and we will be back again.

River Esk SUP
Amazing morning on the water with Sam. A great introduction to SUP and will definitely recommend. Sam is great at explaining and demonstrating a good technique, a great basis for getting to know this sport better. What better place to start than on the beautiful river Esk! Thanks for a great morning, can''''t wait to get on a board again now!

Amazing evening SUP
Thanks Sam for an amazing evening sea SUP around the coastline from Sandsend to Runswick Bay. It was really amazing to be able to get up close to the cliffs and the birds. The sea was just right with a few gentle swells and we really got to feel like we were getting off the beaten track and into the unknown! Seeing the sun starting to set and the rays lighting up the sea at Runswick was magical. Cant wait to do it again!
