      Winter school holiday activity
      Surfing lessons with Lets Go Surfing were a hit with my boys aged 13 in the July school holidays. Cost was reasonable, staff were friendly. Bookings were flexible.

      A legendary experience
      Always wanted to learn surfing but the fear of the ocean always held me back... But one session with these guys and that's all it took to get my confidence up on high! The trainers here are excellent. I've never had so much fun learning such an adrenaline rushed sport. Special thanks to Ned. The man is a legend. Got to learn so much about the tide and the ways of the surf. The team here are the best to get your 101 sessions bout the surf. Highly recommended!

      A perfect day
      My partner and I have been living in Sydney for a few months and finally came for a surf lesson. I was really nervous about it as I’m not too confident in the ocean but our instructor made me feel extremely comfortable and safe. Shamus was passionate, friendly, outgoing, and easy to understand. He really made the experience. Even though we didn’t have too many waves, we had an absolute blast and I’m looking forward to going again soon! If you’re thinking about doing it, just book it! You won’t regret it!

      Amazing surf lesson at Bondi
      My daughter and I have a surf lesson at Bondi with Clare as our instructor and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. After 2 or 3 attempts and simple corrections I was able to stand and surf. If I had time I would have signed up for more lessons.

      Awesome Lesson
      I was by myself so I was a bit nervous about doing a group lesson, but it was great. The instructors are patient and kind. I have been surfing before, but this lesson definitely taught me what I could do better. If I was staying in Bondi I would do another lesson with them.

      Great lesson today with Claire who was very enthusiastic and helpful. She made us feel like we did really well even though I for one was an outright beginner. Gorgeous beach even in the rain. Would highly recommend.

      Jack our instructor was awesome. All 5 of us were standing after a thorough (but not prolonged) demonstration on the shore. The conditions were great, instruction was awesome and jack was extremely friendly and attentive. Can't wait for our next lesson!

      Great lesson with Will at Maroubra
      Was a really good lesson. Only 5 of us in the class so we were able to get a lot of practise tries. Would definitely go back again or rent a board form them.

      Negative
      I did not enjoy this lesson at all as the coach paid zero attention to me and my wife, perhaps thinking we are not frequent participants as the other customers that were there at the class. Most attention was given to them and I received zero advice on how to surf. Don't want to attribute it to racism but definitely a very negative experience. Would have been better to surf by ourselves.

      Sorry, not as good as Bondi branch of company
      This was the children's third lesson with the company, the other two were in Bondi. They got changed in a small hut and then had to carry the boards down to the beach. Unlike Bondi where they got ready outside on a grassy area and then the boards were stored on the beach. Aldo I noticed there was very little instruction before they got in the water. Whilst in the water there was one instructor to 6 children. Whilst the tide was on the turn this went against them and they were too shallow to have Soave to get up on the boards. I noticed one child got out and refused to return and mine also was very disheartened. I just didn't feel that the instructor was half as encouraging or as good as instructing as the Bondi crew.

    It was a great experience and it was a lot of fun!
    The instructors explain the basics in the beginning and we also tried out some practical skills on the beach before catching the waves ! Everything was very well organized

    I had a day spare in Sydney so decided to have a go at surfing. I didn't regret it. Great fun and a knowledgable patient instructor (Jackson). Next time I'm in Sydney I'll definitely be heading back for another lesson and highly recommend Let's go Surf to anyone thinking of taking up the sport.

    More interest in chatting with others in the surf than the lesson. Not in the least enthusiastic about teaching rather bothered by it all.

    I had the best experience with this crew! The waves are really good and easy at Maroubra beach, and not a lot of tourists. Look for Ned, he's such a good teacher!

    Surfing has always been on my bucket list and thus my sister signed us up for a single surf lesson at Maroubra Beach. Following the first lesson, we got "addicted" to surfing and ended up signing up for the Maroubra surf easy plus package.

    We were blessed to learn from the most knowledgeable and experienced surf instructors at Maroubra (namely Ned, Lars, Clay, Will, William, and Danny). In addition, the instructors have a good understanding of the surf conditions, as well as the nature of the beach, as most of them have grown up/lived in Maroubra for many years, which also allows them to share their personal experiences of surfing at Maroubra Beach.

    The lessons at LGS included a short introduction to the coastal geography of Maroubra Beach, followed by teaching us the right surf technique, and most importantly, having fun in the ocean while trying to catch waves! The LGS instructors always made sure that every single person in the group was safe and was having lots of fun.

    Our 6 lessons with LGS was definitely the highlight of my trip, and a memory that will forever stick with me throughout my life. I am still frothing over the surf lessons at Maroubra, and I'm already looking forward to taking more lessons the next time I'm in Sydney, hopefully sometime soon!

    Once again, thank you to the team at LGS Maroubra for the best surfing experience I could have ever asked for!

    Having never surfed before, I'd initially booked my sister and I in for a single surf lesson. Following that, we were hooked and ended up taking 5 more classes, with each one driving our passion for the sport.

    The instructors at LGS Maroubra (shoutout to Lars, Ned, William, Will, Clay and Danny) are all-round amazing people, with many years of surfing experience and passion. Most of them are locals as well, which adds a nice personal touch to their lessons, especially when they share their experiences and insights on surfing at Maroubra beach.

    The LGS classes are a nice mix of surf/coastal geography, technique and most importantly, fun! I really appreciated the attention the instructors gave to every single person in the group - being out at sea (even though we were just a few metres off from shore), this played an important role in making me feel safe.

    My time at LGS definitely goes down as one of the most memorable experiences in my life thus far, and is one I will cherish. Looking forward to taking a few more lessons the next time I am in Sydney and hoping to catch some "frothing good barrelmundis" too!

    Thank you for the best experience!

    My friends and I went on a group lesson in Maroubra. Much better price wise than Bondi Beach for a start. The instructor was great, really fun and patient making sure to spend time with each person. I would highly recommend for beginners or anyone who wants to get some tips to improve their surfing.
