Cannot rate them highly enough. We turned up pretty late and asked if they could do us a private lesson for three. The lady in the shop was as helpful as could be and rang around to find an instructor happy to take us out at 2.30pm. The instructor was called Chris and he was amazing. My kids had done a beginner lesson before on the Gold Coast so I thought I knew what to expect but Chris was totally different. He gave a short speech on safety and how to work out the swells and rips. Then we had a short ten minute instruction on the correct positioning on the board and how to stand. After that we were into the waves. The surf looked huge on the day we were there but two of us were standing on our second waves using the guidelines we were given. The third member was a little less confident so Chris spent time with her getting her to stand for her first couple of waves. After that he pointed out any errors or adjustments we needed to make. He even noticed that our kids were surfing next to us and gave them some pointers as well as bringing them nearer to us for safety. As gung-ho as I was, Chris patiently pointed out that while using the pot luck approach was fine, a more scientific method for getting on the board would be better in the long term. He helped me learn how to find balance on the board and what a difference a couple cms can make. All three of us where very very satisfied with the lesson and cannot recommend them enough. A bargain compared to others around. Don’t hesitate if you are looking for surfing lessons on the Sunshine Coast. Book these guys.
