The instructors were very professional, very helpful and it was a real pleasure to be in the water with them. The entire activity was very well organized. They offered us everything from sunscreen to a bag to put our wet clothes on.

All excellent, I was a bit worry as it's my first time booking lesson online and I booked only one day before. But they are really helpful when I called for lesson information. Instructor is very friendly, and very supportive.

Really fun first time surfing lesson. We were lucky the conditions were perfect. Also the instructors were great and overall a great first surfing experience. We loved it so much we want to learn.

Nice two hours. Just don't expect such high waves as a beginner. It was sometimes quite exhausting to get back towards the sea without being hit by the waves.

The surf instructors were so encouraging - my favourite experience in Australia!
