We just had the most amazing experience. All of the surfing instructors went above and beyond to get our 8 year old daughter who was feeling quite defeated standing up on the board! Thank you so much!

the trainer was not able to tell us what we are doing wrong. he just said we are doing it wrong - i knew that otherwise i could stand up on the board! and most of the time he was absorbed with the girls in the course.

Of the few options available for a beginner's surfing lesson at Surfers paradise, this was selected because it was recommended by the agent I booked it through, and I was initially glad as it was around 15 dollars cheaper than the one I was considering booking. Very conveniently located on Surfers paradise, they have a good set up, with small... More

The coaches were knowledgeable and really friendly. The surf school is also only about 100yds from the beach! During the lessons a photographer from SurfShotzQLD takes photos which you can buy after the lesson. I was really pleased with my photos and the whole experience with all the staff and surfing in paradise... I hired a surfboard from the shop... More

Such a cool thing to do. We did two lessons, two different instructors. Both did really well. In the second lesson he seperated us from the rest of the group and learned us some nice new things. Two hours is pretty oke, you get tired if you're enthusiastic :-) You can also buy your photos for 15 dollars (total pp).... More

That was the best surfing lesson ever! Scott was very attentive and helpful. There were 4 of us but he managed to pay attention to all of us. He took time to assess my skills and showed new tricks. I'm still very much a beginner but now I know new tricks that seem to be very obvious for a beginner.... More

Scott was brilliant, really helpful and patient even though I seemed to take forever to grasp every concept. He explained everything really well, and split his time equally between the group when in the water. I'd definitely recommend, I had a fantastic time in my 2 hour lesson! Great fun!

Really fun morning. We did a one day lesson. Wish we were staying longer. Really friendly teachers and gave great tips. Also pro photographer comes out and snaps you, you have to pay but it's well worth it for the shots he got of us. Would definitely recommend!
