“Great experience”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

Our 2 older kids (9 and 11) had surfing lessons with these guys last week (January 2013). It was an absolutely fanstistic experience. Both were up on boards within half an hour! They were supposed to do 5 lessons for beginners. This course normally runs Monday - Friday but we were only in town Wednesday - Sunday. This was no problem and they tailored lessons to suit. The instructors were heaps of fun and did their job well. There were both guys and girls instructing which was good. We booked in before our holiday and dealt with Amy which was a pleasure. Wayne, Jenny and Macca were all good down at the beach.
We will definitely send the kids back for more lessons next time we go to Port Mac.

“Grandson's First surf”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

Our daughter came over to Australia for a visit and we took her 5 year old son to Flynn's Beach where the surf school is located. He was given excellent instruction on how to surf. The instructor was very professional in his manner.

“kids paradise”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

my 2 teenage sons attended surf school on friday 6th and monday 9th july to learn to surf. The hudson family have really nailed their business. Wayne is the best guy you could meet and has the kids under his spell. His Dad is just the same. My sons had the best time, they wish they could have had more time. Both learnt to surf, and were given plenty of assistance and individual attention. For $40 you get a 2 hour lesson and it is cheaper if you do the whole week. Wet suits provided. Best money we spent.

“A great experience with friendly competent professionals”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

We first had experience with this surf school as a one off experience during holidays which my son enjoyed immensely. They were easy too book with, picked us up from the hotel and were very friendly.

When we moved to Port we took up a block of lessons for the term. All our experiences have been very positive, the coaches are terrific, well informed, very friendly and professional. My son has learnt a lot about the surf, not just how to surf, but about rips and currents, how to read the conditions etc. I would recommend Peter and his family to everyone, people wanting a one-off unique Australian experience or people wanting serious lessons for a block of time.
