My friends and I met Jimmy this afternoon for a surf lesson. Turned out it was just my two friends and I that had booked in, so we nearly had a private lesson. He covered beach safety, water safety, safety with the boards, gave us tips on how to handle the hot sand, and got us going pretty quickly. My... More

I had never surfed before. Jimmy was excellent. Very encouraging and an excellent teacher. By the end of the lesson I had caught several waves succcessfully in to shore and achieved more than I could ever have hoped for as a 40 year old first time surfer. Of course I fell off a lot still!! I had so much fun,... More

Merrick's Noosa learn to surf is the best surfing school I ever tried. Our instructors Jimmy and Jonah were really nice and helpful, they explained everything very well. Altough it was a group lesson it felt like a private one because they helped everyone individually improving our surfing skills. It's also important to mention that they taught us the right... More

At Merrick's surf school I had a brilliant time. I had never surfed before and I stood up in the first 10 minutes, then I even learned some tricks. This surf school is great for learning. In my experience we only went shoulder deep and the waves were 4ft.

As a nervous mother of an eager 9 year old girl and an out of season rough surf my nerves were eased by the care Grant, Anthony and Bee showed Charli. After the first day we instantly signed up for the 3... More

A million thanks to Anthony our instructor. Two family sessions with our daughters who are 9 and 10 years old. Got us all standing up on our boards in the first session. Was so well worth it - these guys are real professional, safe and uber patient. Lots of positive encouragement and prose kept us spurred on. Highly recommend. Lots... More

Have self taught myself to surf over 2 years. Picked up some bad habbits. Kirra changed my technique, and had my surfing improved 100% in less than 2 hrs. Highly recommend the private 2hr session. Well done guys, great service!!!!
