Did a surfing session together with my 6 year old son and these guys and it was awesome. I was half expecting to ditch my board half way through so my son would get some attention but they had it covered. Both my son and I had a great time. Totally recommend. Thanks Guys.

My children had a wonderful week long surf grom experience with Dan, as part of the holiday intensive program. From the helpful advice to the ever smiling face that greeted them, they love their time with Walkin' on Water and can't wait to come back.

This was my first time surfing after a lackluster lesson some 10 years ago and I loved it! Greenmount Beach was the perfect location: plenty of good beginner-size waves in shallow water. I had a private lesson with Dan who was friendly, professional, made me feel at ease about surfing after telling him I was a bit nervous, and got me standing up on my board super quickly. I’m just passing through Gold Coast while on my travels, but if I came back here I would 100% do a longer surf camp with Walkin on Water. Thank you Dan and the team!

Thank you very much Carmen E for such a fantastic review and feedback. We really appreciate this thank you and really appreciated your email as well. We were stoked to read that after one lesson with us when you chimed into a second lesson down the Coast a little bit you were out surfing others who had had 3, 4 and 5 days of full day surf camps! We love what we do and love making everyone feel as comfortable and safe in the ocean as possible and get them surfing and progressing as quickly as we can. Thank you again for your TripAdvisor Review, we wish you safe travels and love to see you back on the Gold Coast and surfing with us again.

I had booked for my 9-year old girl for 2 hours lessons. On the day we went to the wrong location due to my carelessness and missed the time. Jamo is so nice to resend me the address by mail and message as well that we could try the lesson the next day. They are so professional and kind. It was really great experiencs to surf with Dan.

Thank you very much for your review JadeHu. We really appreciate your feedback but are sad we couldn’t get the 5 star rating. We are really happy to read that you were so impressed with our surf school, customer service and surf lesson. It is hard when you are in a new foreign area so of course we can understand how easy it is to make a mistake with locations especially when there are the same street names in different locations. We were very happy to have been able to reschedule your son into the lesson the next day and are super happy to read that Sunnie enjoyed it so much. We would love to see you again if ever you are back on the Gold Coast
