Our friends from NZ had a lovely swim but they were very disappointed that dogs were allowed to swim amongst other swimmers and between the flags. Not a good look at all. Please pass onto the local authorities

Myself and three others under the age of 16 attended a surf lesson in Coolum. Coolum itself was a lovely and reasonably quiet town and it was easy to find the company's surf truck located next to a skate park and find a car park (unlike in Noosa).

We had a private lesson with Chris for the whole family with 4 kids from 4-12 years old. Very friendly and professional style. Started with theory on the beach and then in the water. We were all on different levels but Chris managed to give us all attention. Even our four year old enjoyed the lesson!

My friend and I have gone for three lessons and have taken away something new each time. The instructors are encouraging and very helpful and very approachable. Had an absolute blast each time

My daughter and I had a great time. The instructor was excellent when my daughter became panicked in the surf. He was able to calm her down and get her surfing. She went from being very scared to having a great time because of the excellent instruction. She is now hooked and wants to take more lessons.
