This Company and Merrick are absolute legends. Had my daughter out for a father and daughter kayak and we saw dolphins literally one meter away from our kayaks. My daughter loves dolphins so you can imagine how she felt. The personalised service that Merrick gave too was exceptional and it explains why he was a world champ. Recommend this activity... More

Our instructor was a bit cocky (French), but funny and he gave us good pointers on what to focus on. Overall it was a great experience, although there was no photography service, as advertised on their website....

sun+sand+surfing with jimmy = paradise Jimmy was the best instructor Ive ever had Lessons start with beach safety, then it's perfecting technique session, then straight onto the waves. My son and I were surfing in no time. Looking forward to going back and hanging ten with Jimmy

We got the 3 lesson package for 165 dollars. Jimmy was a great teacher! He explained things clearly, was very patient, really enthusiastic, and gave lots of individual tips. He seemed genuinely happy when someone stood up! It made a very encouraging and positive atmosphere. Plus both me and my friend managed to stand briefly in the first lesson. Only... More

Older, larger mum learning to surf later in life- very self concious and nervous especially going alone. But thoroughly enjoyed it! Instructor was brilliant making everyone feel comfortable with really good instructions and coaching. We all got up and all left with a smile. Can't wait to put into practise what I've learnt- truly recommend!

Our first day on a surfboard was great! The teacher (stephano) is hilarious, patient and gives good advice. Because of a thunderstorm we had to get out of the water earlier. We could come back the next day for a free lesson. Now that's service! We are coming back this afternoon for the 3th lesson. Looking forward to it! :-)

This was our second trip to Noosa and our girls wanted to go back to Learn to Surf. The girls had a great time with two hours of learning to surf. They took into account that they had been before. Money well spent.
