Cheers Simona, yes you were fortunate to be in a small group of eager girls who all took to the waves and had FUN! Being a small group also allowed for more individual instruction thus progressing you quicker. Glad you had a great time.

Thanks Marie. Yes even in larger groups we coaches endeavour to get to each and every participant to provide the individual instruction designed to refine your style to make SUPing a very pleasant experience while encouraging you to progress more than you ever thought possible.

Great couple of hours out on the SUP board. Very easy instruction from Darren. By the end of the session I was doing doughnuts on the board. Would highly recommend the group session because of the price and individual instruction given. Great job Enviro reefs.

Had a combo SUP/ surf lesson and learnt so much in a short time. Coach's were great and water was fantastic. Recommend to anyone visiting or living in Bundaberg.

Cheers Ian. Yes we try to cram as much into the 1.5hr session but it is a self paced learning curve. Most people achieve quite a lot in this short time.

Took my 6 year old to give it a go and he managed to stand up and catch a couple of waves in by the end of the class. Great, patient and friendly coaches! Great morning and lots of fun 😊

Whether adult or child we instruct to individuals needs with the outcome that all get to achieve their expectations. Kids learn so fast they often exceed expectations.
