      Amazing experience, would definitely recommend!
      Amazing experience, the coach was so nice and easy to understand, helping us go from no surfing to catching our own waves

      A fantastic experience with Merrick & the team!
      I decided to try surfing for the first time in Noosa. The surf team were all very helpful and professional in coordinating the lesson. The first 20 minutes taught us the fundamentals and the dangers of the water. This was really helpful and important information as a complete beginner. In the water the team were attentive and instructive, providing helpful guidance on how to improve. We were divided into small groups based on our experience/abilities, which meant the instructors could focus on every one of us. I had a great time and cannot recommend this experience enough to anybody visiting Noosa!

      Great surf sessions!
      I took a private surf class and was thoroughly impressed with the instructor, Merrick, and the overall experience. Not only did Merrick provide clear and concise instructions, but he also provided a safe and fun atmosphere for learning. The waters were perfect for beginners like me and I had a lot of fun! By the end of the class, I was able to catch waves on my own and ride it all the way to the shore. Overall, the surf class was a fun and memorable experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in learning to surf. You won't be disappointed! Thank you, Merrick and team, for this fun session!

      Catching green waves thanks to Merrick's Learn To Surf School
      After 2 years of surfing without having had proper instructions I was failing at even popping up on surfboard. I attended a 5 day lesson with Merrick's Surfing School and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We were given the same instructor for the duration of 5 days (Crof) and with proper guidance and individualised feedback I was catching Left/Right unbroken waves and turning with ease plus moving up and down the surfboard. Thank you Crof for making this such a memorable experience and we'll be back to Noosa to catch up with you soon 🤙Also huge thanks to the rest of the crew: Yanik, CJ, Luis, Rob, Paul and of course Merrick!

      Super fun morning with Louis and Finn, really adapted to our personalities and made us all feel comfortable and had a laugh with us. Was a great surf lesson with a group of girl friends. Highly recommend.

      Rob was amazing, we can’t rate these guys highly enough
      My 9yr old son and I flew up from Melbourne to learn to surf. We booked 3 days of lessons with Rob and had an absolute ball. His guidance was really patient and easy to understand and we both stood on the first day. My 9yr old son loved Rob who very patiently and enthusiastically played “would you rather” for the second and third lesson while we were out in the water. (Did I mention patient, fun and kind?!) If you’re contemplating surfing lessons definitely go for these guys, they’re awesome.

      Great experience, great lesson! Found my new hobby :)
      I had a great experience. He first told us some theoretical tips about the waves and how to stand up on the board. Then we got into the water and learnt step by step how to use the board, read the waves and stand up. Very friendly, patient and fun instructor. Definetly recommend.

      Fabulous, safe fun
      I was gifted a learn to surf lesson with Merrick - a big tick on my bucket list. Merrick is an excellent instructor, very clear and he focussed on safety first and supported each individual in our small group as if each of us was having a private lesson. Most of our group was able to stand during our first lesson, but the emphasis was on learning rather than immediate success. Highly recommended.

      Private Surf Lesson for 2
      Great experience! Super clear tips, great instruction. Anthony was very friendly, very helpful. We had the dry-land instructions and still had lots of time on the water. Anthony was very patient and encouraging. He helped with the boards, held the board for you when the waves were crashing in. Highly recommend Merrick's surf lessons in beautiful Noosa, main beach. Selecting a day that has a high tide would be a recommendation.

      Worth the time and money - private lesson
      Great - 2hr private lesson. Awesome to have the full focus of an instructor. A beginner refresher lesson for me, been 2 years since my last lessons. By the end I was standing and catching waves to the beach. Money well spent. Thanks heaps team!

      What a buzz!! You have to try it.
      I did a private lesson with Anthony and my two kids. In my late 40s and having never tried surfing before (and not being fit at all) I had low expectations of myself and was happy to go for a laugh with the kids. Anthony was so encouraging and enthusiastic! Miss 10 was up literally straight awAy. Mstr 13 was doing it pretty well too and there I was having the time of my life and right at the end there I was too. Actually unbelievably standing up ! It was a beautiful morning sun out, gorgeous noosa emerald forest right up to the beach. I’ll remember it forever❤️

      Great surf lessons
      Had two great days of lessons with Nicara and Laurin. Both of them were patient and encouraging! No pressure at all and you would feel like you could take all the time you needed. Nicara gave tips on how to improve after I managed to stand. It was a huge crowd with Laurin but he managed to make sure all of us could get a turn with little waiting. He was also very willing to share on more knowledge about waves. Thanks guys!

    We booked a group surfing lesson for two total beginners but ended up being the only ones in the group. Bryn was our instructor - so helpful and enthusiastic. We had a great time and would 100% recommend this to other visiting Noosa - we actually got engaged later on this day and it will be a lasting memory for us!

    Booked a 2 hour group lesson with Merrick’s and it was well worth it! My partner and I have never surfed and by the end of the lesson we were able to catch our own waves and stand up. Our teacher Anthony was very friendly and patient. The techniques they show you are very easy to remember, would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn how to surf !

    We had a really good time on our surfing lesson - the instruction and safety talk at the beginning were very informative and then we had plenty of time in the water. The instructors watched each person surf in so they could give tips on how to improve the next time. Absolutely fantastic lesson - would highly recommend.

    Learn to surf was my favorite part of Noosa. We were planning on only taking one lesson but ended up taking multiple surf lessons. All instructors were excellent and great fun! Nikara in particular! She is a great instructor and she makes sure to tell you what you need to work on and do differently to improve. We had the best time and we will definitely be back for more lessons soon!

    We had a great time with Anthony! He started with the basics and gave us a great foundation. He also stayed in the water with us the whole time, was so positive and continuously gave us tips on how to improve in a supportive and non judgemental way. There were only 5 people in the class, all at different levels and he managed to tailor it to everyone. Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone looking to learn for the first time or pick up tips.

    Having never surfed before, and in fact having not much prior experience with the ocean, I signed up for a 5-day surfing course with my partner and friends as a personal challenge. I set myself the goal of being comfortable in the water with a board and being able to pop up, but I far surpassed my expectations. Under the instruction of Crawford, by the end of the five days I was catching green waves independently and turning! Crawford was a phenomenal teacher, providing individualised feedback and encouragement, and teaching us many important things not just about surfing, but also the ocean and how to pick a board. Crawford and everyone else at Merrick's surf school were so friendly and approachable, and we really enjoyed chatting with everyone before and after classes. Can't recommend this surf school enough!

    Hi, thanks; all my staff are passionate surfers, and because the ocean is unpredictable, we try to break our structure down for the average person to understand, and combined with the best, safest learning venue in Queensland, we are happy to see your smiling faces when riding the wave

    I was not expecting to be able to stand on the surfboard. And I did, time and time again! As someone that is scared of the bigger waves, I was given so much confidence and knowledge in just two hours. Loved every minute and can’t wait to go back for more!
