Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great early morning lesson on a SUP. Wanted to try it out before deciding if I wanted to get my own. Learned lots of great tips and techniques & now just have to remember to do them! Was a very relaxed lesson with plenty of guidance & heaps of fun.

Had a great time with Jono. We kept going until I had nothing left. I finished knowing the basics to go away and practice and I’ll be back shortly when I’m at the next stage.

Jonathon is a great surf teacher, and helped us to improve our surf skills.
He knows the best spots and leads you to them.
We had a great time, will be back soon.
Cheers Heiko and Marielle.

Private lesson with Jono. Had a great time. He’s very experienced and is amazing with kids. My son is 7, autistic and non-verbal, and this was the highlight of his trip.

Private surf lesson with Jono this morning - definitely recommend for anyone searching for good surf lessons.
All 3 of us stood up in our first 15 minutes of being in the water. Jono was a amazing teacher and full of laughs. Provided lots of feedback but also allowed us to try and challenge ourselves. Really supportive and really patient with us also.
Didn’t stop laughing for 1.5 hours and so excited for our next go on surf boards now we’ve learnt the foundations with Jono.

Thank you Jono !!

Amazing lesson from Jono. He picked up a few faults with our techniques, corrected them and we were all catching waves consistently for the rest of the day!
Couldn’t recommend him anymore!

Highly recommend a lesson with Jono. Had me standing almost immediately and confident to go off on my own. Jono is patient and truly teaches. My love for surf had been ignited!
