Arranged with Chris over emails who had Jack waiting for 2 kids and me just yesterday. We had a blast learning/trying to stand on the board. Jack was great with the kids, helping them all the time, encouraging yet not pushy. Do this activity with PFSS, absolutely fun.

We signed up for 5 days of learn to surf and it was absolutely fantastic. Great teachers who helped my daughter and myself learn surf safety, standing up and a few ways to steer the board. Fantastic location. Give it a try - you'll love it!

Best place for the starters. Our instructor Sheril was really nice and sweet. She was very calm and gave confident to my wife as it's her first time snorkeling. The wetsuit and snorkeling gear was really proper fitting. We had cherishing experience. We will come back again and we would recommend Port fairy surf school to our friends and travellers.

We recently had a 4 day stay in Port Fairy and we booked a kayaking lesson for our family. We have two children aged 13 and 10, and none of us had ever been out on a kayak before. We signed up via Chris at the Port Fairy Surf School and Chris arranged for Lola and Will to take us out. It was a Sunday morning, the weather was sunny and we started off from the beach, after an introduction and some basic instructions. Kitted out with life vests we paddled up the river, took a break in the shallows then paddled back out and around to a beach near the lighthouse. We walked to the lighthouse for a quick visit, then returned back to our starting point. They were great instructors, very patient and great fun to talk to, it was good getting a few interesting facts along the way as we were new to Port Fairy. We had a great morning, really got into it. None of us had kayaked before but we felt very safe in their hands. They took it at a good pace, with regular stops, and we enjoyed being out there on the water. Weather was sunny which made it all the better. Would recommend it to anyone keen on having a go fir their first time.
