Thoroughly enjoyed my surfing...
Yvette_P, Mar 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed my surfing lesson. My instructor from Go Ride A Wave sorry! I forgot his name was an extremely knowledgeable local young man who knew the beaches very well and taught me a lot about surfing safety. It was my first time EVER trying to surf, and I would highly recommend him because of his kindness and patience. A word of advice to first-timers and folks who are a bit out of shape like me: Get a good night's sleep and have a decent breakfast before attempting so much exercise. lol I was so pooped out that I had to quit my lesson before I actually got a chance to stand up on my board. :- But the next time I visit the Gold Coast I will gladly book this excursion again, especially with this company. God bless the folks at Go Ride A Wave! It was truly one of the highlights of my visit to the Gold Coast.
