The instructors were so patient and attentive. Well worth the experience. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her experience. This is something we will do again when travelling to the Gold Coast.

Our guide, Blake, was really supportive and I enjoyed the activity immensely. I actually was able to stand and ride a wave by the end of the class, which was amazing.

Super fun and would recommend this for anyone looking to learn surfing, or even just for a short day’s activity!! :) Thanks for the exciting 2 hours!
