Been using WoW for several years. Premises are on Unison site. Good service, US lady ? served us and provided great advice. Kindly settled our group down around various requirements. Advice on time of booking and return. Maximized our use of wet suits, boards by booking in line with our holiday period. Felt this approach was over and above what could be gained at other places. Reasonable prices and gear always of a reasonable quality. Steady provider and consistent service.
