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.

THANKYOU to our instructor Bob yesterday for our surf lesson on Saturday 14th Nov. He was so fantastic and patient with 2 "beginners" the talk on understanding the surf at the start of the lesson was really great. It was a wonderful experience, and hopefully again in the future we will return for another lesson!!
