I went to Merrick's for my first ever surf lesson this week and had a blast. There wasn't a massive group which was great because it meant we got more individualised attention during the lesson. We were shown all the basics of how to get up on our boards correctly and then headed into the water where I was able... More

I have never touched a surfboard and was absolutely amazed that I got to cruise a wave during my first lesson! I usually suck at any board riding but thought I'll give a surf lesson a go. The instructors were welcoming and their techniques of teaching were easy enough to understand even for the other people in my group who... More

I highly recommend this surf company. I did three lessons and from never having surfed before I was able to stand on the board and turn it! I had three different instructors and they were all excellent and very encouraging!

With my 2 kids (14 and 7) we took a 2hr lesson and...we managed standing up on the board. Job done. A bit expensive but surfing a wave with your family is priceless :-) Big up to Stephano our teacher, cool guy, pro and fun, we had a very good time.

I rocked up early with high anxiety and trepidation. At 51 I decided if I didn't learn to swim at this year's visit to Noosa I probably never would.
