As a nervous mother of an eager 9 year old girl and an out of season rough surf my nerves were eased by the care Grant, Anthony and Bee showed Charli.

Have self taught myself to surf over 2 years. Picked up some bad habbits. Kirra changed my technique, and had my surfing improved 100% in less than 2 hrs. Highly recommend the private 2hr session. Well done guys, great service!!!!

Jimmy was our engaging and patient instructor. Copped a stray board in the head but kept his cool and got on with it (wow). He was so efficient and made it very easy for us to grasp the art of surfing. Provided the board, the rashy, and the theory of safe and effective surfing. Good range of ages from 11,... More

Never touched a surfboard before and I was up on 3rd try, the technique is simple doable even for the very low levels. I had Merrick himself and he was friendly and super helpful giving feedback anytime I wanted it.
