Couldn't believe what they can teach you in 45 minutes. My 2 children were up and surfing like a pro after 45 minutes. Amazing!! Now I have to try it aaaah

Thank robnkym
Management response:

More often than not the kids really get the hang of surfing quite quickly. It's such a great sport for the young ones, keeping them healthy, active and social. We would love for you to jump in one of our adult surfing classes. It sounds like your kids might be showing you the ropes :) Cheers Tom and the crew... More

Go surf offers fantastic classes that are a great fun time. The classes are well organised and the instructors are amazing and helpful who find time to help everyone. The classes are at Scarborough beach which is easy to get to and takes only about 20min from city center. I would highly recommend Go Surf for everyone!

Sounds like you have caught the 'surf bug'. There is no better feeling than standing up and riding a wave to the shore. Once you experience this it's hard not to want to try again. Wherever you are around the globe, you should venture to the closest coastline and keep surfing. Cheers Tom and the crew @gosurfperth More

There is no better Christmas present than the gift of SURFING!!! Maybe next Christmas you will buy yourself a surfboard and take surfing up as a hobby. There is no better way to cleanse the mind and stay fit and healthy. Thanks for the feedback and maybe we will see you again next Christmas. Cheers Tom and the crew @gosurfperth More
