I am a 61 year old intermediate surfer who booked a private coaching lesson with Tom. Tom picked a great day regarding surf and when we went out he knew exactly where to sit to get some great waves and avoid the crowd. He had some great tips on how to improve my paddling into the waves so that I could improve my wave count, and overall surfing. Tom really knew his stuff and has made a substantial difference to my technique and also improved my confidence! A very nice guy. I only wish I had had the lesson at the start of my stay in Qld not the end!! Next time I am here I will definitely organise more lessons. Highly recommended for older surfers !

Can't speak highly enough of these guys. Small groups means that you get good one-on-one feedback. If you're looking to start surfing or improve surfing, this is your best bet.

I took the 8-week challenge. It seemed good for early-intermediate surfers, those folks who are well beyond beginner but who still have lots to work on. The coaches are really helpful and attentive. They seem to have an eye for those small tweaks that can make a big difference in your surfing. I benefitted a lot.

Tom has been great in helping me and my daughters get going surfing! Very patient with all of us and we are all loving it! I would recommend Currumbin to anyone that is just learning to surf and wanting to progress faster than you could on your own.

So much fun learning here for the past 6 months! I am a newbie learner and find the instructors super fun, experienced and explain how to improve in an easy to understand way. It's pretty great - there are young kids out there and folks in their later years in life! Which is super nice if you are looking for a family friendly and supportive place to learn regardless of your age or experience level. The instructors all love surfing and this passion definitely rubs off in classes. :-) I'd recommend signing up for at least a 5 pack to get a feel for the water, boards, surf and different conditions rather than a one-off.
