My 14 and 13 year old boys and 10 year old girl had the best time with Matteo today in their first ever lesson! He managed them all together and they had the best time. They can’t wait to go back, worth every cent 👍🏻

My 11 year old son has been learning to surf with Currumbin Alley and loving it. I can only go by his happiness and enthusiasm as I have not been having having lessons but he loves the instructors and is loving surfing!

Highly recommend going with this school. Our instructor was Matteo who was patient, informative and extremely knowledgeable, tailoring his instructing technique to our individual needs. Made for a very enjoyable experience.
