Amazing lesson. The Instructors, Nat and Tristan were great, so professional, relaxed and patient . Thought I might be a bit overwhelmed being older but really learnt the fundamentals of how to surf! Cant wait to practice at home.

Great to see the expressions on the faces of people that have never caught waves before, when they are riding a wave standing up. Lots of fun.
