I had a great experience with Walkin’ on Water. Instructor was really encouraging and helpful. Happened by chance that only one other person ended up in the group lesson so we had the instructor’s help and attention throughout. The two hours flew by and felt very comfortable

Thank you so much for such amazing words elfa_tra... we are super happy to read that your experience with us was so good and you had such a great time and loved how we do things. We really apprecaite hearing that you felt comfortable all the way through as being in often a very new environment for people not used to being in the ocean and waves, it can be intimidating and scary so we work very hard and have planned our lessons in a way to hopefully ensure at all times people always feel safe, secure and comfortable, so your feedback is excellent thank you. Thank you again for your sensational Rating and Review, we really appreciate it and love that you had such a great time with us and had so many fantastic words to say about your lesson. We would love to see you again!

So much fun, didn't feel anywhere as much of a dill on the beach as I thought I would, and most of the time is in the water. The instructors are fantastic, can't really give them enough praise! Friendly, supportive, and super helpful. Definitely have a go!

Dan the instructor was incredible! Absolutely loved every second and I could not believe what great value the lesson was. I stood up almost every time that I tried to catch a wave and I felt genuinely supported in trying to get better and better each time that I went for a wave.
