As a family we had an amazing first experience of learning to surf with these guys just over a week ago. John was our instructor, he had alot of patience and was extremely encouraging. Highly recommend you guys to anyone wishing to learn.

Awesome experience, whole family loved it. Everyone wants to buy a surf board now!
