We all had a fantastic time. The guys were really great at encouraging and helping the nervous kids, to make sure everyone had a good go. We went on a cold day and it was no problem as we were given really warm wetsuits.

My husband and I so enjoyed the whole experience of learning to surf with Go Ride a Wave! The teaching and instructions were fantastic! Our instructor gave us so much help and was so accommodating to our individual needs and levels of experience. We had so much fun and felt really safe as well, which is important when you're just gaining confidence at surfing. We can't wait to go surfing again! I would absolutely recommend Go Ride a Wave to anyone wanting to learn how to surf!
