Trying to keep three teenagers entertained is a challenge on most days, but I have to say contacted Jon to arrange surf lessons who was more than accommodating. The kids were in their element, he was informative, friendly and just fab with them. By the end of the lesson they were all able to ride the waves. I even rang back the following morning and was able to hire the boards so they could take to the waves again. Thank you Jon they had a great time!!

Had a 2 hour surf lesson with Jon. He was brilliant with our 3 kids aged 9, 7 and 5...we were straight into the water and he had all 3 standing up within the first few waves. Jon was really relaxed and encouraging. Awesome fun!

I called the Northside Surf School on the spur of the moment and luckily John was available that afternoon. John was prompt and gave good clear instructions. John's local knowledge of various locations, tides and hazards to expect gave us confidence. John was amazing with our 8 year old and was mindful of all of our capabilities. John ensured that our first paddle boarding experience was fantastic. We would definitely book again when in the area.

I was a total beginner and John was a very good instructor; encouraging and extremely knowledgeable. Had a really great time and I definitely want to get back on a surfboard again soon. Would highly recommend northside surf school!
