What people are saying about Port Stephens

Really nice and friendly instructors. It was a beautiful day. They will bring you to the sand dunes with a 4wd car, really impressive. After gliding some dunes sitting on the board we decided to try them standing, scarrrry but so much fun. Really nice to do with your partner, group of friends or as family. Thanks a lot for the amazing day! :)

Great fun! Very professionally run, guides very helpful and accommodating of differing levels of rider competency. Would absolutely recommend
