Cannot rate them highly enough. We turned up pretty late and asked if they could do us a private lesson for three. The lady in the shop was as helpful as could be and rang around to find an instructor happy to take us out at 2.30pm. The instructor was called Chris and he was amazing. My kids had done... More

The three of us had a really great time learning to surf through a private lesson with Ben. Ben was a great instructor, giving such great advice on how to surf and some really good pointers individually on what to improve on after each wave. So much patience! I would do it all over again!

I'm not that much into reviews - but special thanks to Gav and Steve for their patience and determination to get me 'up'! Had a ball and loved it. Thanks so much.

I've been travelling around Australia for 3 months now, and Coolum Surfing School has been the best thing I've done so far! We had a lesson with Ben and straightaway you could tell he had not only a passion for surfing, but for teaching others how to surf. My friends and I had a blast and couldn't have asked for... More

Did two private lessons first with Ben and then Tahla. They were excellent! Professional, friendly and encouraging. Despite being nervous initially I ended up having a blast. The second lesson had to be re-scheduled due to bad weather. Gen at the surf school kept me well informed and made the second session happen. Would highly recommend the Coolum Surf School.... More

My family, one adult, 3 teenagers booked in with Russell for a private class. They loved it and all caught a wave and stood. They all spoke very highly of the instructor and had a great time. I was the bystander, and was the one paying, we originally tried to book for 9am, only to be convinced that the weather... More

I booked a private lesson with my boyfriend. During the morning I was sick, but they lifted up my mojo and I decided to catch some waves. I had a few more lessons compared to my boyfriend but that wasn't a problem. They guy started with the basics (explained better then ever before) and later we went into the waves.... More

My cousins and I did a private lesson with Steve and Dan. I was a bit tentative at first, but ended up having an absolute blast. The instructors were very professional, patient and helpful, and guided me through every step of the way. I ended up going back for another two hour group session the next day. My only regret...

Enthusiastic Instructors make this school the great school it is! This was the second time my six year old had lessons (the last round was a year ago). With their encouragement he was back up on the board first go. The instructors are understanding and patient, we have re booked again in next week. Thanks guys!

Booked a private lesson for 6 kids ranging in age from 19 - 10. Great value for money all kids were able to get up by themselves by the end of lesson. Very professional and would recommend to anyone
