Awesome family activity that our teenagers really enjoyed. Our instructor Annabelle was knowledgeable and super helpful. The whole group was up on our boards surfing within the first 15 minutes. Loved every minute of it.
Jarrad and Oscar were great coaches, super friendly and helpful. They also rip! I’ve been surfing for almost 15 years and felt my surfing get a lot better over the two day camp I did. It’s a great way to get used to surfing in this part of WA. With so many different waves in the area and a bit of distance between them you will be much better off if you are with someone with local knowledge. Highly recommend!
I have been visiting Margaret River two or three times a year since moving to Perth in 2007 and my recent visit was my favourite because of Josh's surf school.
I have a twelve year old son who is getting a bit too old to want to hang out with his parents, so we booked a couple of lessons hoping it would give him some independent fun. We booked two sessions initially, using a Wander Out Yonder voucher and we were so impressed we booked extra sessions for every day we could.
You'll be blown away and reassured by Josh's knowledge of the local area and conditions. He is up at the break of dawn every morning checking on the surf to ensure the break you visit is suitable for your skill level and you experience as much if the area as possible. He is one of those rare teachers who clearly has a passion for his subject and wants to share it by lighting a fire in his young students. He is enthusiastic, positive and knowledgeable. He is also a really great guy.
Our instructor was Lee Olsen, a young local who described Josh as, "Just the best guy. He's more like a mate than my boss." Lee was awesome and also had that endless energy and positivity of surfers. He was attentive to my son's safety, engaging and skilful. We couldn't have been happier leaving our son in his care.
If you have a youngster getting into surfing, or wanting to give it a try, I couldn't recommend the school highly enough. I imagine they would be just as good with a competent surfer looking to upskill.
Worth every cent. Highly recommended. This school has made my son super eager to come back with us to Margs on our next visit. Great teachers and great guys. Loved it.
We contacted Simon to enquire about hiring a couple of SUP boards and he was so helpful. He arranged to drop them off for us and pick them up a couple of hours later and recommended a lovely spot to use them. Excellent communication and service, would deffo use again when in Margaret River.
