This is a fantastic way to spend mornings on the beach with your family. The staff are fantastic and have plenty of wetsuits & boards to accommodate all walks of life. The kids have a ball learning to ride the waves (and big kids too!)

A great surf spot for beginners. The teachers are good. The groups are big so suggest if you really want to learn to surf finding a school with smaller groups or individual lessons would be better. But they cope well with the groups here however and you certainly do learn a lot of good skills.

Great atmosphere and the tuition is tailored to all abilities and ages. Never thought I'd stand up on a surf board but managed it at 44! Meanwhile my daughter was having a whale of a time flying through the carefully structured levels.

My daughter loved learning with these guys. They are awesome. Very hands on and knowledgeable. She can't wait for the October lessons to start. Bring it on.

My boys had so much fun and gained so much confidence with their surfing. They learnt so much about waves, the beach and being SunSmart. I will definitely be booking my boys into more programs in the future.

We did a three day surf school, the weather was great and although the wind came up during the sessions my daughter still managed to stand up many times and really enjoyed her time.

My family took surf lessons last year - we were new surfers and we all fell in love with surfing. The teachers are really great and the beach is beautiful and perfect for newbies.
