Phone call after 3.30pm to Wayne on a winter's day to check out whether he'd run a lesson for 7 young adults (13-16) and one big kid (40+).....and he quickly arrived and went about his business professionally but with a perfect blend of humour and ribbing that teenagers respond so well to! All had an absolute blast and had to... More

My "almost" 10 year old daughter and I took surfing lessons with Port Macquarie Surf School in March. I was pretty nervous but wanted to make this a special thing that we did together while visiting Australia. I have to admit that it was one of the best things I have ever done. PMSS did such a great job making... More

Incredible... Good lesson. Fun location, and really enjoyable session. Very good price for the time dedicated, and the group size added to the experience for two newcomers to the sport.

What a great place to learn how to surf and the people that run the school coudn't be nicer! I think our instructors were Blake and Luke, they were awesome. My son and I both took lessons and received plenty of help learning to get up on our own. It didn't take long before we were both up! After our... More

On the last week of the school holidays my two children did an intensive surf program with Port Macquarie Surf School. They loved it. The instructors were fantastic and have a real passion for what they do. My kids can't wait to do it all again. Thank you - it was the perfect way to end the school holidays.

They were supposed to do 5 lessons for beginners. This course normally runs Monday - Friday but we were only in town Wednesday - Sunday. This was no... More

Our daughter came over to Australia for a visit and we took her 5 year old son to Flynn's Beach where the surf school is located. He was given excellent instruction on how to surf. The instructor was very professional in his manner.
