Thanks to the Go Ride a Wave team for a great couple of hours - I went from never having been on a board to standing whilst catching a little wave in under 2 hours. And it was a lot of fun.

We really enjoyed it. The staff was very helpful and kind. You could really feel that they wanted you to do good. It was a lot of fun even though we did it in heavy rain. A great experience

Brayden & Sam were very welcoming & informative. I’d had some surfing lessons in the past without much success. Brayden gave me some great pointers and got me standing a few times. Worth every cent. Highly recommend these guys.

I did a surf lesson with go ride a wave and they took me from never having been on a board to riding like a champ in no time. The staff were very friendly, playful, and encouraging. They made me feel totally at ease and comfortable on the waves. I loved it so much I decided

Hello dgshaft, I stoked to hear you had a great lesson and then wanted to come back to keep practising. You are right though, a bad day surfing is always better than most. We always want you to be happy and safe while surfing and if that mean being honest with people, we are all about that. Hopefully next time you come back you hear us say "It's the best day ever, GET OUT THERE!!" :) Jack

Thank you so much to Will for an amazing surfing lesson - for two hours we couldn’t stop laughing at ourselves. Will explained everything thoroughly and was an awesome (and patient) instructor. Highly recommend Go Ride A Wave if you want to learn to surf.
