Pete's coaching has been an inspiration from my first session to international competition

Very enjoyable session ... masses achieved by everyone in a short time
Awesome, first time in my life, great teachers! I could not believe I've waited up to now for this amazing sport! Thank you guys!!
Surfing standing up before Dad!
Great surf lesson. My girls thoroughly enjoyed it and have been bitten by the surf bug!
My boyfriend and I, along with 2 other tutees, had a beginner's lesson with Pete yesterday. He clearly knew what he was doing and first of all made sure we had a thorough understanding of all safety aspects relating to surfing. The lesson itself was really well structured to ensure we were all grasping the concepts we were learning and not getting left behind. The wetsuits we were given were very comfortable and warm and we had no problem being in and out of the sea in them over 3 hours. Pete himself is a lovely guy and was very patient. I can't express how much fun we had (even during our frequent wipe outs!) and will definitely be surfing again in the future. Thank you very much Pete, hopefully we'll soon you for more lessons another time we're in Pembrokeshire
Excellent beginners surf class in a group of 4 at Newgale Beach with Pete. Thoroughly enjoyed it with a balance of theory and 'practical' elements. Pete was a great teacher and we all managed at least a few seconds standing up by the end. Supplied nice warm wetsuits but bring beach footwear to get accross the pebbles. Pete can look after clothes, towels etc as well as car keys etc. Definitely recommend. Thanks!
I had a couple of lessons with Pete and Joe last week and they were fab! I had no previous experience apart from a bit of body boarding as a kid and at age 38 didn't think there was a chance that I would stand up but during the 2nd lesson thanks to the coaching I did on more than one occasion. I can't wait to get back to Newgale to get back out there and can't recommend Masterclass enough!
Very patient teacher ... felt safe and encouraged.
Pete ran two sessions for our Air Cadets and they were absolutely brilliant. Both Pete and the second Instructor were professional, encouraging and knowledgeable. The sessions were pitched at the right level and gave the Cadets (and some staff!) the opportunity to really give it all a go. Thank you so much - a fantastic experience.
It was a fantastic, really informative and fun course. It couldn't have been better.
Awesome afternoon of surf lessons from Charlie and Pete, Charlie was a fantastic tutor who gave nice easy instructions and made it really fun, ready to book a second lesson
John and daughter (Locals and now regular surfers)
My two daughters - Crystal (13) and Violet (12) - did the half day beginners course and then the improvers follow on session(s). Loved it! Pete is one of the UKs original surfing trailblazers since the 1960s. Excellent coach. Patient, supportive and clear instructions. And nice fella. Kids had a blast. Thanks Pete!
Brilliant day's lessons, extremely friendly and professional service

Ember (Birthday session)
What a great afternoon. Really learnt lots and was pleased with all of us learning to stand up so quickly! Excellent instruction. Might be back next year.
Had a couple of lessons in Cornwall that were nothing like the calibre of these... answered so many questions I've always been too embarrassed to ask.
