Really relaxed but professional set up. They connected fabulously with little kids, adults and my teen. Really supportive and great training in technique and general surf skills. The teen wants to go back ASAP. Really good value for money.

We booked a family private lesson for us and our two kids. To start with we had booked a mid-day slot but requested an earlier if one opened up. The team managed to get us into an 8 am start with no problems at all! On the beach, Stephan was encouraging, down to earth and lots of fun. We were also lucky to have Jake join in and help our two groms catch their first waves while Stephan handled the other kids (the adults...)! From the beginning, it was a great experience and we've made the decision to pick up our first surfboards in the next couple of weeks! Thanks everyone for a wonderful introduction to the surfing lifestyle.

By the end of the 2 hours, me (44 yo) and my daughter (9yo) were both standing on our surfboards catching waves. Say no more. We loved it! Both never surfed before. I couldn't imagine that I could be standing, so very happy with the outcome and can't wait to try again. It was a busy Saturday, and a large group, Steph and Chris did well to ensure everyone got plenty of 1 on 1 coaching. 2 hours is certainly enough time for beginners before you're exhausted. Highly recommend to anyone!
