Was great. Able to stand on board in first lesson and plenty of time to practice. Surprisingly good safety brief as well. It was actually interesting. Props to Tom for being a legendary teacher. Now to continue my shredding journey!

My 11 year old was given a surf lesson by her Uncle Steve and Aunty Lisa with Merrick Davis' surf crew. It was an awesome experience and
If you are wondering who Merrick Davis is, he is the bloke who kicked off the longest running (1995) and most recognised surf school in Australia. Merrick is former two times Aussie and World Pro Am Champion, so he knows his stuff, as do his fantastic team who built immediate rapport with the newbie surfers. My daughter had Tom that day as her instructor and he was a genuine, patient and talented surfer who instilled confidence in all. Needless to say I think all surfers that day stood on a board and rode a wave in on their first lesson. My daughter certainly rode one all the way in!

Booked onto the group surf lesson but as it happened there was only 2 of us so made it even better for receiving tuition. Anthony gave really useful tips off the water and on the water as we were complete beginners. It was so much fun and now we can't wait to try it again! Great value for money.

We had an amazing time learning to surf with our instructor, "professor" Jim. Our group was nice and small so we had plenty of 1-on-1 assistance, if needed. Thanks to his advice we were up in no time. He was extremely encouraging and fun! The other instructors were all ready to help out as well and even give you a few pointers, thanks Tom! Thank you for a great first surfing experience. Well worth your time!
