Wonderful experience! Only reason 5 stars not given was due to crowds and surf current so strong. It was exhausting and fun.

Thank you very much for your Review and Rating. It is fantastic that you had such a wonderful experience. We always strive for all our lessons for people to have the best experience we can offer so it is always disappointing when we do not quite meet this and do not get 5 Star rating. Sadly we cannot control the crowds nor the current. We are at the whim of what the environment gives us in terms of conditions and then the number of people at the beach. We are however very happy that you found our instructor lovely and had a wonderful time.

My 3 children attended a surfing lesson which was a birthday celebration. Such an awesome idea! The weather was perfect, our instructor Jamo was obviously very experienced giving each child equal attention. The thrilled look on the kids faces said it all- fun, fun and even more fun. Thanks!!

What an awesome day for my 2 girls! The team was organised and really helped the kids to take the first steps to riding a surfboard. 2 hours later we have 2 girls keen to keep going with surfing, and both caught plenty of waves. Fun, informative, instructive and safe. What more could you want? Highly recommended to try, and it's suitable for all ages:)

My 18 year old had been surfing beach breaks for 5 years and had transitioned from a foami to a 6.9 board but had been struggling in perfecting his pop and wave positioning. Jamo in one hour managed to get him popping and carving the face of the wave with the greatest of ease. The change in his capability was impressive and I thank Jamo for helping him transition to the next phase of surfing journey. Your patience encouragement and experience is priceless thanks.

Thank you so much for such an amazing Review and Rating. It is hugely appreciated and your feedback is very humbling, thank you. It is our passion seeing people improve and progress, being able to break through plateaus and instil the understanding of correct technique and correct surfing movements and manoeuvres. Often it can only be one or two little things that need to be tweaked that will then allow someone to move to the next phase of their development and it is something that we work very hard at, to detect and correct these technical components to help fast track this progression. Thank you again so much for your sensational Review and feedback. Your words are very much appreciated and i hope he is still going strongly and loving his surfing!

I highly recommend Walkin on Water to anyone wanting to learn to surf on the Gold Coast. Greenmount beach is a perfect location as it is nice and protected and we scored some beautiful crystal clear waves which will stay in the memory bank for a while to come. Jamo is an absolute legend who clearly loves what he does which really adds to the overall experience. Thanks for an epic morning mate!!
