Thank you Stefan for a wonderful couple of lessons! Learn to surf was my favorite part of noosa. I was planning on only taking one lesson but ended up taking three because I felt like I kept on improving by the end of each. I stood up heaps during my first lesson, and during the second one even managed to... More

My friend and I travelled the east coast, and Noosa was by far our favourite place. Our surfing experience had a lot to do with that. Noosa Learn to Surf has the best staff of any surf school we attended. They are all super friendly. Our instructor was Stefan and he was so knowledgeable and hilarious. Whether or not you... More

He talked us trhough everything and then told us not to be afraid to ask for help which I did frequently and he really helped and made me be able to stand on my board. I'm glad we... More

I wanted to try surfing and I dif. Through the YHA you only pay $45 so good value. I got picked up and we got ready. I was in a beginner's group with 2 20 yo and 2 8 yo. And children like to claim attention... The instructor paid more attention to them and they surfed more than us. It... More

Stefan is one rude, arrogant man! He even speaks to his colleges in a very disrespectful way. As for the other instructors they couldn't be more kind, helpful, constructive and great teachers. Jeffrey in particular - thank you so much.

I went there for 5 days of surf, 3 days of lesson and 2 of practice, it was really great. The team is very friendly and patient. The spot where they bring us is nice to learn surfing. Few instructors speak french so it's a must if you french and not very good in English. I really recommend Merrick's surf... More

Over the years there gas been a consistency in the instructors and they provide clear easy instructions which can be understood by young and old to get good results. The instructors even remembered our girls and as they improved... More

We chose this surf school for two reasons. 1. The excellent reviews on trip advisor 2. The life guards recomended Noosa as best place for children to learn surfing, beach more sheltered . We booked for a family of five, two adults, three boys ages 9, 8 & 8. The group was seven adults and our three children for 1... More
