I'd like to single out Ollie who was a great coach, demonstrating moves that we can only hope to emulate, but he can isolate your areas to work on, and does everything with a huge smile on his face. Hannah and Nathan were also amazing. I had two group lessons. The first with 19 people, which left me a bit frustrated though I had learned some basics. The second, there were just two of us, at Mangawhai, and we had such a great time in messy surf; I left feeling totally elated. I'd highly recommend Ollie as a coach and the whole operation which is very professional.

Twice two hours of lessons and I managed to catch quite a few waves standing up. The first day was frustrating, the second was great. Steve and Cam are excellent teachers, especially to help you make next steps.

Me and my friend took a two hour surfing lesson. Because of the weather we had the whole beach for ourselves. The waves were just right for beginners like us and our trainer was super nice and friendly. After just half an hour both of us stood on the board already.
Despite the cold it was a super amazing experience and a lot of fun.
