All I can say is WOW. I had previously had a lesson from a different provider in surfers and wasn’t too happy so I booked with these guys. I wasn’t left disappointed. Jason is a great instructor who seems invested in his students, and the staff all round were very friendly and welcoming. They go the extra mile to ensure you get the best out of your lessons and I would recommend get wet surf school to anyone that’s looking for a fantastic service!!! Keep up the great work. Fantastic ambassadors for surfing🤙🤙

As my children are not participating their regular team sports due to COVID-19 restrictions I was looking for something for them to do that was fun, active and healthy.
A friend recommended surfing lessons.

I called several schools and found Get Wet up at the Spit beach were offering a special rate for one on one privates as group lessons are not permitted at the time.
Both children had an instructor each and it was amazing. Blake and Aidan ( 10) hit it off right away and Emma (8)though Sammi was “super cool”.

The price was incredible, almost a third of the normal private rate and they instructors were so professional and great with the kids. The company was very conscious of all of the rules of social distancing and hygiene.

My kids are already booked in for every weekend in May but would go every day if they could.
Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for your awesome review, Darcy. Getting fresh air and some exercise is so important right now, both physically and mentally (as long as we all do the correct social distancing!) :) Surfing is such a great activity and I hope your kids continue to surf once team sports resume! The Spit is also the perfect place to learn to surf :) Blake and Sami are awesome coaches and we are so glad to hear that Aidan and Emma get along so well with them. We will see you for the rest of the month; thanks again for the great review :)

I tried surfing for the first time and was elated with the experience. i was so happy the first time round that I ended up taking a second lesson a few days later with get Wet Surf school.
My trainer Sam for both the sessions made me feel very safe, shared all the key techniques and overall made the class so much fun. He is extremely hard working, willing to go the extra mile (in this case catch the extra wave) and shared practical inputs rather than focusing it all on theory. The other trainer, Jason who had joined Sam for the second session was equally competent, offering suggestions and corrections while maintaining the fun element.

Even the entire staff including Emma were very helpful, addressed all my queries before the classes and managed to arrange transport. Overall a very competent and professionally run surf school with employees who enjoy what they are doing.

Side note: Spit at Main beach is the best place for beginners as the waves are easy to ride and the beach has comfortable depth (less than 5 feet) for not so confident swimmers.

The twins further developed the skills they learnt 18 months ago (pre COVID-19) ably assisted by the excellent staff. The location is very good for beginners but the hidden secret of Get Wet is the fantastic staff. Highly recommended for anyone looking for beginner lessons regardless of age.

Wow! We will definitely come back here again.

I booked a group lesson for my partner. When we arrived, she was the only student. Many will have a requirement for the minimum number of students. But not here. To my surprise, they went through with the lesson. And what was supposed to be a group lesson turned into a private one. Just for that I was ready to give a 5 star review...

But wait! There's more! The staff is super friendly, the instructors are great. While I was hanging out on the beach with my daughter, I saw my partner going from a swimmer to a surfer. She was impressed, I was impressed, my daughter was impressed.

Solid 5 stars.

Hi av3nger, Wow! thank you so much for the lovely review :-) Although we cant always run a lesson for 1 person we do appreciate that people may be visiting the Gold Coast for a short time and have a tight schedule with so many amazing activities to try :-) I am thrilled that you found our staff friendly and the Instructors great, its easy when you love what you do to be excited to share it with others :-) We would love to see you and your partner again and really appreciate the time you took to share your experience. Kerri :-)

Get Wet Surf School is doing an absolut fantastic job! I have booked the package of three surf lessons. It was a real pleasure and great experience for myself. I could not imagine that I would really surf on a surfboard just after that short periode of time. My surf instructor Jason did an amazing job! On the one hand Jason was very calm and patient, on the other hand supportive and motivational. His immediately and precise feeback has helped me to implement his instructions into my surf directly. The progress which I have made during just these three surf lessons was unmissable (and an amazing feeling by the way too!)

I attended the beginner surf lesson at The Spit (Main Beach) on Saturday and was standing up and catching waves within the hour.

During the lesson, I was given some really valuable tips to correct my technique.

I highly recommend Get Wet Surf School for people of all abilities!

Emilio was fantastic, we had a two hour lesson with him at the Main Beach. He taught us basic safety stuff, how to avoid rips and we always felt safe.

We pretty much dived straight in to surfing, the weather was rather windy and raining but it didn’t stop us!! Emilio was really good and gave us all good tips and we all managed to stand up by the end of the lesson

5/5 would recommend

Fantastic 2hours. We were only 2 students and basically had a private lesson with the instructor. He taught us a very easy to learn tecnique, gave us plenty of time to practice both on land and in the water and plenty of feedback on our form. By the end of it, I was catching my own waves and was able to surf.

It was an incredible surf lesson, very thoughtful instructors that put in a lot of effort into their lessons and make sure you ride some waves. I love the fact that they provide transportation as well and take you to a beach that is not crowded. The surf wasn’t perfect but they still made sure we made the best of it and caught some nice ones. Would definitely recommend 🤙🏼
