Really fun morning. We did a one day lesson. Wish we were staying longer. Really friendly teachers and gave great tips. Also pro photographer comes out and snaps you, you have to pay but it's well worth it for the shots he got of us. Would definitely recommend!

Really enjoyed our two hour surfing lesson at Surfers Paradise. The instructors were great - we were in quite a large group but they made sure that they still gave everyone individual attention once we were in the surf. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

It started raining that day so I decided to look into surf lessons. Literally booked the class 10 mins before it started; they were really accommodating. Scott was a great instructor. Very friendly and informative. I took the beginner's class so much of the time was spent on land for the lesson. 2 hours was not long enough!

Our kids were given a Groupon Voucher for lessons for "Learning to Surf". These vouchers were valid until February which we were unable to use due to weather and work commitments. True to his word Cheyne honoured these vouchers in May well after the expiry date. Upon arrival at the surf school we were greeted by very friendly staff. Scotty... More

The team are really really friendly and surfers themselves, they know what they are doing and had our group up and going in no time. Booking was seamless and professional the whole way through. I highly recommend Cheyne Horan School of Surf to anyone wanting to learn and also just have a good time on the water. Cheers guys!

I booked my 9yo daughter in for a lesson with Darren. She has always loved the water and has been saying for a while she wanted to try surfing out. So after meeting the others in the group off to the beach she went. Darren got everyone to familiarise themselves with the board and techniques of how to push and... More
