Took myself and 16 yr old son for a 1 hour lesson, we had never even tried to surf before and we had a really excellent time, my son succeeded in standing and surfing a wave, our instructor Sam was really good with lots of tuition and help.

My kids had an awesome week here!! Very organised and professional, with enough staff for all the surfers, making their time in between waves minimal. Not only do they help the kids catch waves but always have an eye on them as well. There is nothing like seeing their faces after they've caught one in, would recommend them to anyone!!

I signed up very last minute to be part of a group session and I had never once surfed before... it was absolutely fantastic!!! My 2 guides were Sam and Andy-- they were incredibly encouraging, kind, and supportive and they took great care of me as well as the rest of the group.
