Mark was an excellent, patient and fun teacher. He even managed to get 2 rookies on their boards in one lesson. Definitely recommended if you are in the region!

Amazing lesson...Mark is a wealth of knowledge and an excellent communicator. He gives you the skills, knowledge, safety and confidence to surf on your own. After having 2 lessons elsewhere this was by far the best and most insightful experience! Thanks Mark...highly recommended! Would definitely come back when next in NZ!

Thanks very much for your review,
We specialise in educating people to be able to surf by themselves, to be continually learning and improving by using self analysis, we dont teach you how to surf, we teach you how to surf better and we are stoked that you notice the difference.
Thanks again and hope to see you both again,
Thanks Georgie.
Best Regards Mark
