The secret of their success is the excellent staff.
The twins further developed the skills they learnt 18 months ago (pre COVID-19) ably assisted by the excellent staff. The location is very good for beginners but the hidden secret of Get Wet is the fantastic staff. Highly recommended for anyone looking for beginner lessons regardless of age.

Awesome surfing experience
Jun. 2021
Awesome experience. Super friendly environment and made to feel at east straight away. Our instructor Jasons teaching technique on land and in the surf made it a pleasure to learn. He was keen and genuinely excited to see our progress. And at the end some great photos to remember the experience by. Highly recommend the team at Get Wet Surf School.

I was surfing in less than 2 hours
Jun. 2021 • Solo
Fantastic 2hours. We were only 2 students and basically had a private lesson with the instructor. He taught us a very easy to learn tecnique, gave us plenty of time to practice both on land and in the water and plenty of feedback on our form. By the end of it, I was catching my own waves and was able to surf.

A great start for anyone looking at learning to surf.
Jun. 2021 • Solo
I attended the beginner surf lesson at The Spit (Main Beach) on Saturday and was standing up and catching waves within the hour.

During the lesson, I was given some really valuable tips to correct my technique.

I highly recommend Get Wet Surf School for people of all abilities!

First time surfing
May 2021 • Solo
These guys are great! Super professional. Teach you the surfing technique, and get you in the water! They will teach you how to read each wave, point your board in the direction of the wave and be able to ride it in!
Also teach you about the ride, ocean patterns. Pretty cool. I stood up twice then fell over haha.

Brilliant experience twice over
Mar. 2021
I tried surfing for the first time and was elated with the experience. i was so happy the first time round that I ended up taking a second lesson a few days later with get Wet Surf school.
My trainer Sam for both the sessions made me feel very safe, shared all the key techniques and overall made the class so much fun. He is extremely hard working, willing to go the extra mile (in this case catch the extra wave) and shared practical inputs rather than focusing it all on theory. The other trainer, Jason who had joined Sam for the second session was equally competent, offering suggestions and corrections while maintaining the fun element.

Even the entire staff including Emma were very helpful, addressed all my queries before the classes and managed to arrange transport. Overall a very competent and professionally run surf school with employees who enjoy what they are doing.

Side note: Spit at Main beach is the best place for beginners as the waves are easy to ride and the beach has comfortable depth (less than 5 feet) for not so confident swimmers.
