Dear Lisa, thank you so much for the lovely review, we are thrilled that you and the children enjoyed your time with us , you guys took to it like naturals. I'm sure Lane will be out on his own board from Santa every chance and Finn was super keen and will want his own in no time :-)

Awesome surf school

My daughter had a lesson with Jason and she can’t stop talking about how great it was. Jason was a fantastic instructor and put her completely at ease. If you go with a good attitude and trust your instructor there’s no way you’ll be disappointed

Great for family with young kids
Jan 2020
We're a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 7 and 9) from Hong Kong. We had a great time with the private surf lesson. The coach was very attentive and accommodation. Our kids learned to surf with the basics within 30 minutes! Adults had difficulty, the coach was very encouraging. We'd definitely try this again when there's a chance.

Best surfer company ever!!
I can't say enough good things about get wet.

The instructors are relaxed, happy, knowledgeable and keen to help. The groups are small so you get the benefit of individualized advice based on your level. The transport was always on time and super friendly drivers. The office were very accommodating as I kept adding more (and then more) classes. I did four but wish I could've done more.

I spent a bit of time watching other surf school classes before booking. The other classes in surfers paradise were large and I saw people getting no help at all. I'm so glad I booked with Get Wet instead (a couple in one lesson said they tried another company first and it was terrible, after their first class with Get Wet I think they were booking more).

All the instructors over my 4 classes took the time to tailor their advice to my specific technique (Or lack of 😂). They also advised on waves, surfing ettiquette, how to pick surf spots, and safety. All the tools you need to go it alone. But to be honest, I had so much fun with these guys I wouldve booked more lessons!

Thank you to the wonderful office team, drivers and fantastic instructors. Special thanks to Jack and Emilio who were just so encouraging.

Doubt be in any doubt that this is the absolute best surf school you could pick.

Hi Gem! WOW, what can I say?! This type of review makes all the hard work worth it. It completely sums up the experience we strive so hard to provide for our customers, and is the exact reason we sacrifice our margin with our low participant-to-coach ratio. Get yourself down to Cornwall or Devon this summer in the UK and keep ripping it up!

Bad company with poor equipment and insufficient instructors
My family of 6 paid for a 2 hour private lesson. We have surfed twice before but are basically beginner level. This surf company was disappointing. They had terrible equipment. Didn't have adequate sizing for mandatory surf shirts. The ratio of surfers to instructor was 6 x 1. That is insufficient, particularly considering the level of instructor we had. Very young and inexperienced. 1 of the 6 never surfed. I stopped surfing after a few rounds because it was so chaotic and my children were not receiving the private attention I had requested and paid for. They should have provided 2 or 3 instructors for our group. Instead, I feel like I got shortchanged having paid 420 AUD when only 3-4 of us could surf. Bottom line. I wouldn't recommend this surf company to any beginner family or group. If you go, make sure you demand and require at least a 1 x 3 ratio for private instruction. Also, I would also bring your own equipment and gear. You will be disappointed with what they provide.

Thanks Nathan, Now the facts: Nathan BOOKED a 6 person private through his hotel concierge ( 6 people 1 instructor) Nathan PAID for a 6 person private $70pp (total $420) Nathan RECEIVED exactly what you paid for Nathan did not tell us that 2 of the 6 in his party were children under 12 and did not fill in the student information form that requests ages, so we had no idea ( Nathan said he didn’t receive it but our booking system says he opened the e mail. The national recommended ratio by Surfing Australia is 8:1- Our ratio is max 6 adults per instructor or max 4 children (under 12) per instructor – we would have recommended this had Nathan provided us with that essential information We did not know Nathan’s size- again, Nathan gave us no information – the largest surf shirt we have in the trailer is XL – had we known Nathan was a XXL we could have accommodated. Most people can fit an XL size as they stretch, the rest of Nathans equipment was in perfect condition. Nathans instructor was 37 years old and has 5 years coaching experience (4 in Brazil and 1 year in Australia) – he thanks Nathan for the compliment! Nathan did not pay for and request private instruction for his children at all, he paid for and requested 1 instructor for the 6 of them – in fact only 5 joined so it was 5:1 ratio We agree Nathans children should have had their own instructor- had we known how young they were this would have been recommended. Bottom line: I politely apologised to Nathan in the first e mail, before I knew of his behaviour towards my staff even though this was in no way our fault- Nathan failed to provide essential information. Nathans family were lovely and enjoyed the lesson, thanking the instructor and apologising for Nathans behaviour Nathan was rude and aggressive to our instructor (as witnessed by Nathans family and our staff and most likely a multitude of people on the beach at the time) Nathan was probably frustrated because he was not as capable as his family but behaviour like this is not tolerated Nathans words with relation to a refund: “I will dispute the charge and continue to make negative reviews” this sounds to me like blackmail? I can see from Nathans other reviews on Trip advisor, it appears Nathan likes to give 1 star and complain about paying for things. You won Nathan congratulations! All correspondence and instructors statements available if anyone would like to read prior to accepting Nathans recommendations. I would also encourage any operators who receive 1star reviews from Nathan to talk to their staff and get facts before offering refunds to Nathan.

Great first surf lesson for newbies!
Dec 2018 • Solo
Honestly I was pretty nervous about surfing, I'm not good in water so it's never been top of my to-do list, but I'm so glad I did! Andrew had me standing up within the first few attempts and smiling the whole time, actually gaining confidence rather than getting down about failures - the best kind of instructor for nervous newbies!

Hi eviestacey, Thank you for the awesome feedback! Andrew is going to be stoked to know how much you enjoyed his lesson. Surfing can be a bit intimidating for first-timers but as soon as they get in the water and realised how fun and safe it is ... they forget all about their fears and it's all about the fun of catching waves ;) hope you keep surfing. thanks again :) Kerri

Andrew was awesome
We’ve done group lessons with Get Wet previously and they were great. This trip my 10yo did a private lesson with Andrew. He’s amazing with the kids. My son thoroughly enjoyed his lesson and grew in confidence and enthusiasm for surfing. It was a beautiful morning at the Spit. We’ll be back.
