The beginner's surf adventure with Manly surf guide was amazing. The price is very fair compared to the other surf schools around Syndey and there is a surflesson (1.5h) in the morning, lunch, afternoon surfing lesson (2h) and all the equipement included. The surf guides are very friendly and experienced and I had a very good time.

We booked Manly Surf Guide for our 12 year old daughters birthday with 9 of her friends in December, and the day was a huge hit. Ryan and his team took care of everything, they were great and incredibly patient with ten 12 year old girls! If you are looking for an easy, hassle free kids party with a difference,... More

The equipment was all in good condition and the group was nice and small which meant we got good one on one time with the instructer. Cant wait... More

I did the beginner surfer's adventure and it was great. Ryan is very laid back and tries to accommodate everyone. The beach they take you to is good for beginners. After a brief lesson you go for it in the water. Unfortunately I went on the busiest week of the year so it was pretty crowded but the instructors tried... More
