Sent my teen for 5 days of surf lessons at the end of which she is confidently changing speed and turning. Most importantly, she loved the lessons and 1-2-1 instructions received from all instructors. Thanks guys, you've created another surfer!

Awesome surf centre. Would highly recommend. We have been going here for a number of years as part of a youth holiday (11-14 year olds). Every year we have fantastic reports back from the young people and adults. Would strongly recommend using this centre.
