I would definatley recommend Beach Bum tours to anyone visiting Brisbane or the Gold Coast! 3 of us went on a 1 day tour which included a surfing lesson at Kelly Slater's favourite beach to surf at in the world, a trip to a surf factory outlet & to finish a swim at a beautiful spot with natural rock slides...

A great weekend had by all. I have had a lesson before but nowhere near this level of tuition. Very personal and very constructive. All of other other days events like the rock slide and so on were awesome too. I also got to meet some pro-surfers. It was also great to be on one of the truly great world... More

I went on the Beach Bum Surfari after winning a holiday to the Gold Coast from the UK and it was definitely one of the highlights of my entire month on the East Coast! The instructor Scott was very friendly and you could tell he knew what he was talking about when it comes to getting on the board. In... More

Beach Bums was the first of three surf lessons I've had while traveling in Australia, and after the other two I realize how lucky I was to have this one first. Our instructor was so helpful and we all stood up on our boards. He showed us some of the Gold Coast's best surf beaches and explained surf rules and... More

The Beach Bum trip was one of the best weekends we had in Australia. We got unique surf lessons from very nice, caring and professional instructors, went to special places and had the best fun in Surfers Paradise. Everything was just great! Thanks – you gave us an unforgettable experience!

Not just a pile them in Surf school. Personal attention, small groups and excellent location. Everyone got up on their boards within a few tries due to Scott's excellent training technique.
