Another great morning surfing with these guys. Regardless of ability and skill level, Jamo, Dan and the rest of the crew really know how to get the best out of you. Would give you 10 stars if they would let me.
Cheers Legends

Booked a private lesson with Jamo for my 16yr old daughter. Very professional and a fantastic instructor who made it a fun experience. She was up surfing waves by the end of the lesson. If you or your kids are looking to learn how to surf, I can highly recommend this surf school and the environment they teach you in is one of the best on the Gold Coast all yer round.

Thank you very much Greg, your Review and Rating is very much appreciated thank you. It was fantastic having your daughter surfing with us and hugely satisfying to see such fast development and improvements in the session. Watching her improve each wave was excellent, seeing the building of her skills, her confidence and the belief in herself and her surfing was amazing. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and excellent feedback, we are stoked to receive it thank you and hope to see you both back again in the future.

My 18 year old had been surfing beach breaks for 5 years and had transitioned from a foami to a 6.9 board but had been struggling in perfecting his pop and wave positioning. Jamo in one hour managed to get him popping and carving the face of the wave with the greatest of ease. The change in his capability was impressive and I thank Jamo for helping him transition to the next phase of surfing journey.
Your patience encouragement and experience is priceless thanks.

Thank you so much for such an amazing Review and Rating. It is hugely appreciated and your feedback is very humbling, thank you. It is our passion seeing people improve and progress, being able to break through plateaus and instil the understanding of correct technique and correct surfing movements and manoeuvres. Often it can only be one or two little things that need to be tweaked that will then allow someone to move to the next phase of their development and it is something that we work very hard at, to detect and correct these technical components to help fast track this progression. Thank you again so much for your sensational Review and feedback. Your words are very much appreciated and i hope he is still going strongly and loving his surfing!

They are absolutely the best. We met jamo, dan and the rest of the team 2 yrs ago.
My son and some friends had group lessons and they loved it. They made my son to love surfing. Now because jamo and the team i can go surfing with my daughter and son.
After having experienced a lot of schools in different places, i can tell this guys are different, they focus so much in aspects that not everyone focus: technique!
I definetely recommend that if you are in Cooly stop by. They are the best!

Cannot recommendation the WoW guys highly enough.
I did a learn to surf lesson with Jamo and his guys on a busy Saturday morning. They took the time to show us everything and made sure not only we were safe but the other swimmers in the area.
The instructors all take time with each person individually to make sure you have the best day possible.
Big thank you to the WoW guys - have certainly helped get me keen to surf weekly!

Thank you very much 488helenr for such a great Review and Rating. We were really stoked to have Matt surfing with us and that we had the chance to help him improve his surfing and give him his biggest waves and longest rides he said he had ever caught. Thank you very much for your very kind words Helen, I loved being able to take him out for a surf at Greenmount while you were here and also get dad Terry on a couple of waves too!! I hope the rest of your trip was sensational.

Never done a review before, but walkin' on water deserve this one. These guys are so great and so professional, managing to juggle four of us with very varied levels of ability. Personally I improved loads in the few hours in the water and (most importantly) all of us had loads of fun.
I've done a fair few lessons with different people in the past and this was the best lesson I've had yet. Would highly recommend them to anyone, of any level or age.
