Great surfing lesson for a 9 year old - friendly and standing up first go. Instructor was lovely and very easy to book. No fuss and we did the lesson at Broadbeach just off the park. Recommend highly.

Great surf school, great safety focus the instructor:student ratio was very good, we got a call to say it wasn’t safe to surf for beginners and immediate offer to refund or reschedule.
Instructors were very child friendly, made the pre-brief fun but got the main points over with emphasis. Our youngest was very proud to surf all the way in to the beach and is now an avid surf dude :-D
Very impressed.
