As a student, I was at first aw struck with Lilly’s feats as a professional, and very much a fan of hers. Lilly is an inspirational person and teacher, and I know first hand she will be great with all students; from kids through professionals.
Bodyboarding as a sport is a discipline that has many techniques, and like anything, takes practice, Lilly can immediately hone in on what a student can do from the first 5 minutes she is with the student, for immediate progress. I found her to be a patient, and practical teacher, and very encouraging.
I really can't recommend her any higher as a teacher.

I have been a fan of bodyboarding for many years now, I love watching the sport and have always had a desire to practice bodyboarding but have been paralysed with fear of the ocean. 
I have wanted to bodyboard ever since I was a child, but never found a way of feeling safe in the water, and therefore never surfed. I have also known Lilly for a long time now, I have watched her succeed as a professional bodyboarder, charging the worlds biggest waves for many years. 
Through the years, Lilly has motivated me to overcome my fear of the ocean, she instructed me through my first waves with confidence and safety. I must admit that was the best experience of my life. Lilly helped me overcome my fear and gave me the opportunity to practice the sport I’ve loved since childhood. 

I found in Lilly something that I think is very important when you are learning and with my condition, confidence, patience, love for what she is doing. 
She is the most patient person, she was there, outside doing the mental work explaining everything how it works when you are there, how the waves work, how they form, what do you need to do. Everything you need to know to don’t get panic.

She was there helping till I got outside, having fun, celebrating my first wave and on my side when I was in trouble. 

Lilly Pollard is professional, she is experienced, she is confident, she knows everything about the sport and the ocean and she is a lovely person. 
I will definitely have the pleasure in keep being her official student.

As a total beginner I was a bit nervous for my first lesson but from the moment I met Lilly I felt at ease. The way she explains bodyboarding skills as well as how the ocean works makes the whole thing really accessible. I always come away from my lessons feeling that I've learned lots and as a result I'm more confident in the water. And I always have a lot of fun and come away really inspired! I'm grateful to have Lilly as my teacher and would highly recommend her to beginners as well as experienced riders.
