I had a surfing lesson with Adam at Greenmount beach and it was an awesome morning. The gear supplied in the lesson was easy to use and Dan was a fantastic instructor who really wanted to see me learn and catch some wavesHighly recommended

Hi Guys,
As a 50 year old lady and a bit of a adrenaline junky, I signed up for the beginners surf class last Saturday July 21st.How lucky was I to have Dan as my instructor and partner in crime!
From the start of the lesson he made you feel welcome and comfortable and nothing at all was too much trouble or stressful!I had the most amazing,enpowering,challenging and fulfilling experience and yes finally stood up and caught quite a few waves.Dan was so encouraging,patient and had a fantastic and positive personality that made the lesson even more fun!
Even though I found out that night I had torn my medial meniscus in my left knee due to one of my maneourves, I wouldn’t change a thing and will be back next holidays for another lesson and will continue to surf when possible.Thanks Dan for an amazing lesson.

Well not quite pro but definitely an enthusiast. Dan corrected my technique to stand up which significantly raised my ability to get up which caused me to never want to leave the water. Dan was personable and created a fun and safe environment. It was so good that I have booked in my niece and I for another lesson when she comes up from Melbourne and I intend to get a lesson every month or so to learn something new or correct something that needs tweaking. Dan, I owe you big time!

I only originally went for one lesson, but it was so good, I booked another. My instructor Dan was a dead set legend. He had me catching waves on my first lesson. He was super friendly and approachable with a nack for teaching ,explaining things, answering questions and I feel went above and beyond with help and advice. It’s because of this I can’t recommend Walkin’ on Water surf school enough. In my opinion it represents the pinnacle of a quality surf school
