I am a repeat customer here because of the awesome time I had last time. This time was even better. Westside Surf School has the best surfing instructors. They took me to a level of surfing that not in my wildest dream I thought I could ever achieve. My instructors name was Keith. Highly recommended.

The water can be a bit cold but as the quality of wetsuits, booties & hood are great you won't notice it! Some mega surf on wide, long beach.. Unspoilt & relaxed. Brilliant place to chill out!
