The instructions were super entertaining and friendly and are open for questions and try to make the best out of your time!! It's quite cheap for Australia and just an amazingly relaxed beach. Can only recommend!

It was our first time surfing and it was so much fun! The instructors were super funny and helped us by pushing us in the waves and screamed when we should stand up. Later we all had the oppotunity to try it on our own....More

I had a great experience with Gnarly tours. If I remember correctly, we were about 11 students, an instructor and an assistant. Everyone very nice! Good atmosphere and positive feedback from everyone. I would like to recommend this surf lesson for people with any surfing...More

I had so much fun during my surf lesson with Wes and Lorenzo - they're both fantastic instructors and made it so easy for everyone. The free GoPro photos and wristband at the end were really nice touches. Highly recommended if you're in Agnes Water.
