Pre booked a 2 hour lesson online for myself and my son (7). Everything was explained well when we got there, we were a large group which was split into 4 with 4 instructors. My little boy absolutely loved it, got as far as standing up on the board too! Going to try and squeeze in another lesson for him before we head home. Great afternoon experience :-)

Two of my granddaughters had surf lessons in a group with Mel as their instructor. They had a fab time and stood up on their boards in no time. All of the instructors are great and I can highly recommend having lessons with this school. Both of the girls absolutely loved it ‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️

Booked for the 3 of us to have a lesson.
This was part of a group where we had 2 instructors for 12 people.
Safety instruction was comprehensive but did not detract from having fun.
Wetsuits provided along with rash vests in order that we could all be spotted in the surf.
We all had great fun & had it not been for a knee problem, all 3 of us would have got up in the board by the end of the two hours

Be warned though - surfing is a FULL BODY WORKOUT. We were aching two days later.

Well worth the money.

Hi DocColgate732,

Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review of your experience with us, and it's great to hear that you all enjoyed your lesson, even within a larger group. Normally, we would split groups into smaller fractions with one instructor, so I expect it may have been part of our instructor training protocol on that particular day, but it's great to hear that you needs were met just as well. You're certainly right about the full body workout, as surfing is physically taxing, but the exhilaration generally outweighs this. The good news is, the more you surf, the less physically demanding it becomes as the stamina and skill set develops.

Thanks again, and hopefully see you again soon!
Gavin & team

I brought a group of 26 teenagers (11-15 year olds) all with a variety of experience for a surf lesson yesterday. They had the best time of their lives during the two hours of their surf lessons. The instructors are incredible at teaching and wonderfully patient. So many of our students who had never held a board before ended up on their first lesson standing up, which gave them great confidence!
As a teacher and a trip leader, it was amazing to be able to feel comfortable to hand the reigns over to the instructors and know that we were all very safe. Everything was included (suits, boards etc.) and was extremely reasonable as a price.
Wouldn’t hesitate to book this again!

Hi KateH459,

Thank you so much for your glowing review! It's so good to hear that you found the instructors to be professional in their lesson delivery and in meeting your group's safety needs in the water. Its great that we were able to instil confidence in your students' within the first introductory lesson, despite many of them having had little to no experience with surfing.
We're also stoked that you found the price competitive and that you would consider using us again! We certainly hope that we get to see you again soon!

Best regards,
Gavin and team

Really enjoyed my lesson with Luke who was a great teacher. Would definitely recommend this school for anyone looking to get on to a surf board for the first time or wanting to develop their skills.
