Winter water that's warm!
Jul 2021
Encouraging teacher and comfy wetsuits....don't get better than that in Winter. The class size was small (only 3) which was great. It was all kids which again was good as everyone was at the same level. The wetsuits were new and kept the kids totally warm...no problems at all in being in the water for nearly 1.5 hours. Thanks guys great job.

Thanks so much for the great review! Glad to hear you had a great experience. The off-season is a great time to get a small-group experience, glad the wetsuits kept the kids warm and surfing! Hope to see you in the water soon!

Excellent teachings and so much fun. Only issue is the class is far too big - it should be halved for more assistance for everyone.

Will and Hannah were great instructors today, they were very helpful, encouraging and informative. They remembered the participants names throughout the 2 hour lesson. We had a quick change of locations and they were very accommodating of the conditions of waves today. Well done and keep up the great work.

Great advice about where to surf and how to begin.
A very fun experience overall!

Awesome Go Ride A Wave experience!
Jan 2021
Fantastic!! Great instructors and excellent value for money. By the end of the lesson my 16yo son was confidently catching waves. There was also an option to hire the board and wetsuit for another day so he could continue practicing. Easy to book online, great communication and an awesome experience. Highly recommend.

Perfect start to surfing
Thanks to Will, Owen and the Go Ride a Wave crew. This four day course was the perfect intro to surfing and beach safety for my seven year old daughter. The course built her confidence and skills whilst also being loads of fun. The coaches were great - we really enjoyed the balance of safety and skill development with light hearted tricks and fun. The kids got a great little booklet to fill out as they went and a wrist band at the end. Loved it, thanks.

Family fun in Lorne!
We spent 6 days in Lorne just before Christmas. We wanted a surfing experience to remember our time away. We found Go Ride a Wave on the internet. We - 2 families, 4 adults, 4 kids - booked a 2 hour learn to surf lesson.
We met Laura and Maddie near Lorne Beach, grabbed boards and walked them down to the beach for a dry land lesson. After a while we hit the waves and away we went. Laura and Maddie were in the water instructing the entire time.
Both instructors were wonderful. Calm, helpful, informative and very experienced surfers. They were great with adults and kids. The two families really appreciated their fun loving attitude and helpfulness.
We would recommend this experience to anyone who has ever wanted to surf but never got around to it. We all want to have another go to work on our skills and try and master standing up!!!
Thanks Laura, thanks Maddie.
