I decided that surfing was going to be my new hobby for the year - so glad I picked Go Surf to help me achieve this! I have had two lessons so far and all the instructors knew exactly what they were talking about, were super friendly and fun. Great equipment and location too :)

Yet another who has caught the 'Surf bug'. It's one of the best bugs you can catch ;) Surfing is one of the best hobbies to have and can be done all year round. It also ends up being a lifestyle which can take you to some amazing places around the world in search of waves. Great to hear that... More

Ahhhh I love it when I get called young! Almost at the 'Dirty 30' age so I'm told it's all downhill from there ;) Or maybe you were not referring to me hahaha Thanks for the kind words and we look forward to furthering your skills in some lessons sometime soon.

I booked surf lessons for my 12yo boy with Go Surf in January 2017. I cant rate these guys highly enough. It was well organised and the instructors were knowledgeable and friendly. Sometimes the instructor seen some of the kids had picked it up early and so instuctors took those kids to the side and gave them further helpful advice... More

It's so nice to hear that he has been enjoying the surfing lessons and has now decided to make a hobby of it. There is no better way to stay active and healthy than jumping in the water for a surf each week. We obviously don't like to cancel our surf lessons, especially for the kids as I know it... More

Super surf school, with a very easy to use website for overseas bookings. Tom and the team are fabulous with kids: supportive, fun and also pushy when necessary. We signed up for 4 lessons, but kids wanted more, and they now can't wait for the next holiday.

Thank Miral F
Management response:

Glad you found our new website easy to navigate and that you enjoyed your surfing experience with the Go Surf team. The kids classes are always a whole lot of fun with lots of encouragement. As a parent I'm sure you appreciate the times where one needs to be a little 'pushy' to ensure everyone is listening to instructions and... More

My son is having surf lessons with Go Surf, he's had 2 of the 4 so far and he is loving it. As he's a beginner I personally would like to see more instructor involvement throughout the hour and a half class although I do appreciate this can be difficult for them to get around them all. However my son... More
