First time after 4 years back on the board and the BIG GREEN SURF SCHOOL brought me back to the level I have been before. Not a pro but ready to stand up! Thanks for the lesson. Will recommend you! Cheers!

What a great group of people. We've been 2 years now and will be returning again. So much time and patience with my 7 yr old. She loves it and her confidence grows with each visit. Good price.
