I did a 2 hour basic surfing lesson and it was awesome. The instructor did well teaching us and really helped me to stand on the board by the end the lesson.

My children had their first surfing lesson with Adam. Easy to book in and have my questions answered on their web page. Kids enjoyed the lesson and tried their best. Surfing is harder than it looks. They had fun and Adam was patience with them.

My colleague and I had one afternoon free in Sydney for some fun. The weather was gorgeous so we headed to Bondi and met up with the Lets Go Surfing team. The instructor was great and really made the experience fun. I even stood up and felt like a pro. Highly recommend to anyone!

We only had one day at Bondi and couldn't pass up the chance to try surfing. We were in a small enough group and split into complete beginners and the more competent which I think was good as everyone got the attention they needed.

Before you go out and buy yourself a shiny new board, thinking that surfing is in your blood, it’s a good idea to invest in a few lessons. That's what I did and I've never looked back. Big ups to Dave for pushing me on the waves!
