Testimonials

"I have had a great couple days with Dom. I am a lower intermediate surfer in need of learning some more advanced techniques to enjoy my surfing more and Dom helped massively with that. Dom has a brilliant holistic outlook with surfing, we did some really good mobility exercises to warm up, ran through some great technique stuff on land, helped me to understand the physics of surfing, and put it to practice out in the water. I feel a lot more equipped now to surf solo, and I have some clear areas to work on. Would recommend Dom to anyone who is after a kind, passionate and highly effective coach. The best surf coaching I’ve done!"

"10/10 great experience. I’ve traveled down with my other half all the way from Brighton for a get away down this amazing part of England and we can both say we are very much pleased with our choice to go with Surf Sanctuary. From amazing teaching through every aspect of how to surf safely and do it the right way, to great conversations and laughs throughout the lesson made us both feel very comfortable and content. I would definitely recommend to anyone if you’re looking for surf lessons whilst down in Newquay this is the place to go, no doubt about that."

"An absolutely exhilarating morning with Dom, Hector and team! Great communication before and on the day. They kept a good eye on all the youngsters in our group and made it totally fun for them! I've never surfed in my life but with their coaching I was standing on the board by the end of the session. Have a go!"

"Absolutely the best experience in Cornwall! We had our tours/ activities with Surf Sanctuary- headed by Dom. From inquiries, communication- it was great, decided to push booking. Situated at The Headland at Fistral, it was easy to locate and parking is free. From anxious friends, we ended loving the water more! 💖 All the equipments were in good working condition, wetsuits were CLEAN (they wash it properly every use). The orientation was so helpful it made my friends be confident in water. The staff knew their element, and will make you feel safe. Jaime was trying so hard to impress us in the Atlantic Water, making sure that we enjoy the snorkelling experience we had with them. Dom even hauled our friends for the whole trip, as they are not good swimmers. Then the coasteering- OMG we’re beyond words! It was a chef’s kiss cherry on top experience in our trip, it was tiring- but all worth it. I cannot even put into words how Dom and Jaimee made this trip so unforgettable! "

"I did the Ocean Confidence session with Dom today and it was amazing! He individualised the session to focus on areas of my surfing and ocean awareness that I am not confident in, and I learnt lots. The knowledge and skills learnt will really improve my surfing and safety in the water going forwards. Would highly recommend!"
