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!

Our two boys loved it and want to go back. The teachers kept an eye out for the boys and one isn’t a very good swimmer. They provided wetsuits for them. Overall great day had!!! Highly recommend

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.
