This was a fantastic surf lesson that we did as a family group. Everybody had a lot of fun and managed to stand up, as well as learning the fundamental skills to carry on practicing on our own. This activity is suitable for teens and young children.

I had both a two-hour SUP lesson and a two-hour surf lesson at Go Ride A Wave in Anglesea. The shop is nothing but professional with high-quality rental gear. Both my instructors were knowledgeable and personable. I left both lessons feeling confident and accomplished. I would definitely recommend taking a lesson or renting gear through this company.

For my daughter's 9th birthday we organised a group surfing lesson for her and her friends. They all absolutely loved it; the instructors were amazing with them and the confidence the children gained was so worth it. Would highly recommend to anyone. A huge thankyou to Go Ride A Wave in Anglesea, we will be back 🙌🏻

We were a group of 9 plus size women who were on a weekend Escaping Your Comfort Zone retreat. We had all been looking forward to the Stand Up Paddle boarding part of the weekend with a mixture of excitement and "what the hell have i got myself into"!

An excellent lesson from competent friendly teacher. Plenty of time was allowed for a really good session. Very good equipment, very good facilities. This could be great family activity. Very impressed by the whole set up. We were complete beginners and 60+ but we were encouraged and had a great morning.
