“Great guys, lots of fun.”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Tried the two hour befinner group lesson was a mix of ages from little kiddies to 50+. But everyone got plenty of attention, tips and help to catch the waves. Instructors were really friendly and took surf safety seriously talking us through what to look out for on the beach. We were picked up from our hotel as we were staying about 20mins away from Coolum. All round great morning highly recommend.

“Surfing Experience”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

This was my first time trying to surf and I must say it was so much fun! We had a girls weekend away and thought this would be a fantastic experience and that it was!! Thanks to Steve and the crew for being patient and giving us all a surfing experience to remember for life. The smiles are still on our faces!

“Fun, professional, friendly and relaxed!”
Reviewed 30 December 2012 via mobile

These guys are the best! So easy to deal with and a credit to local business on the Sunny Coast. All the staff are great with both adults and children. The equipment is new and in great condition. They give you a branded rash vest to make it easy spot you in the surf and provide sunscreen if you have forgotten yours. The lessons are practical and informative with safety in mind but fun and relaxed at the same time. A special mention to Pierre who is my children's favourite coach because he is fun and funny. All the instructors are first class so you are in safe hands with them.

“Eager to please”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

I originally booked an adult lesson with the school, and was placed into a group with very young children where I didn't feel I got attention. But to the owners' credit, when I contacted them about it they were eager to rectify the issue quickly and without fuss.

“Friendly, professionel and best place to learn to surf!”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

My wife and I booked a 2 hour lesson with Coolum Sufing School so excited to try surfing and we were not dissapointed! Chris and his wife who owns the school are so nice Aussies! They are helpful, aware and they even allowed us to lend one of their boards for free to get better!
Piere our teacher was very thourough and explained clearly about safety and how to get standing and when we entered the water he took good care of us.
If you want to learn how to surf you should for sure book with them! Coolum beach is beautiful and the staff is personal and you really see how much they love surfing themselves and never once do you feel like your just one amongst other, they are very attentive and sincere!
Chris thanks for everything, and for sparking a flame for surfing, now we have to find some waves in Denmark!
