Hey guys, so glad you guys are loving it. He's been surfing so well & so great to get him in the water and learn in a different sort of environment. See you guys down here soon :)

The instructors were so friendly and enthusiastic, the kids took to them straight away. They had two lessons booked, both with different instructors, but were very safe and informative. The kids had a great time and are looking forward to going back for more lessons.More

This is an awesome surf school, great bunch of laid back guys in a great place. With each lesson being 2.5 hrs long you get plenty of time on the water. Highly recommended.
