I was pretty excited to join the class, end up feeling disappointment.... I came alone and teamed up with a Chinese girl for carrying the surfboard, and as she keep complaining the surfboard was too heavy for her, we end up being struggling slow and got really behind and

We are sorry to hear about your experience. It can be frustrating when a contact lens comes out during a lesson but provided you can see at least 3 meters in front of you it is fine to proceed as the instructors are always close by. When carrying the boards, pairing up is the easiest way to do it, we do try to pair you with someone approximately the same size and physical shape to make it even but we apologise that the person you paired with for carrying boards was complaining and dropping the board; fortunately you didn’t miss any of the safety brief. Our instructor Chen really has such a polite and friendly nature, as all of our Chinese visitors do, he feel awful that he came across rude to you, that really was not his intention, he was just concerned for your safety when asking you to follow the instructions of the class, he said if had he known about your trouble with contact lens he may have been able to advise you as he wears them also. It is really important during a lesson that you follow the instructions and do what the rest of the class is doing to ensure that all participants are safe, as some people may be on a second lesson or are more advance it is not uncommon for the instructors to allow them to move to the side of the class to practice by themselves but they keep anyone who is on their first lesson close, safety is our number one priority. As with all our lesson we work with a maximum of 6 students per instructor,the lowest ratio in Queensland, the recommended ratio is 8:1. Your class was 17 people with 3 instructors with perfect conditions, the other instructor was with a private client so that may have caused confusion for you with the number of participants. We hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

This was my first time surfing but by the end of the lesson I was confident standing on the board and was even able to catch a couple of waves on my own! I had a fantastic time and the instructors were really helpful throughout, all in all a great experience.
