Be had such a great time! This was our first time surfing, and Marit the instructor was so good! She really followed up on everybody and gave you tips and tricks to get better! By the end of the session everybody was so stoked and had a huge sense of accomplishment! Would really recommend! The beach was also really nice! Good waves and only sand, si really safe!

Great Surf Lesson for any Skill Level
Monica_C, May 2023
I have never surfed before and this was the best experience I could have imagined for my first time! Hannah was a fantastic instructor and so incredibly patient with helping me the entire lesson. The two hour lesson was perfect for a beginner and it was nice having a smaller group to get to know each other and have enough 1:1 time with the instructor. I can't recommend this course and instructor enough!
Perfect day surfing

Really enjoyed our day in Noosa surfing. Had so much fun, and the instructor were so funny and good at what she did. She were able to explain and instruct us, so it was easy for us to understand. She helped us catch the waves so we had the best chance to try and stand up on the boards. Everyone managed to stand on the surfboard at the end of the lesson. Will definitely recommend trying this!
Great experience!

This was a really great experience for me as a beginner in surfing. The instructors were really helpful and nice and I managed to stand up and stay on my board multiple times.

Mena_F, Jan 2023
Was amazing and we ended up going two days in a row. The instructors were great and made the whole experience worth it.
Great fun learning to surf
Martin_A, Dec 2022
Great experience, great fun instructors were excellent, plenty of time spent with individuals. Highly recommended
I wouldn't recommend this...
Brittany_J, Sept 2022
I wouldn't recommend this surf school compared to the one other I've tried, the instructions could have been a lot more straight forward (as I've previously experienced) and it'd be a lot more effective in getting students standing up faster. The instructor didn't share his attention equally to everyone in the class or make effort with the students who weren't doing so well, he preferred to spend all his timw with the one's who had previous lessons and/or were doing the best. I didn't like that the coach touched me when instructing. I don't recommend.
Helen_B, Sept 2022

Great fun for all
Stephen_C, July 2022
Really friendly, great fun, all the gear. Even larger group still feels personal. Safe environ,ent. Great mix of people. Everyone got up on the board, even me.
Give it a go - you won’t regret it
Stuart_A, July 2022
Great fun, great people & they make sure everyone catches a wave. We did it on a cold (relatively) rainy day and stayed nice and warm in the wetsuits provided - and even got picked up and dropped off at our accommodation.
Response from Host, July 2022
Well done Stuart, i hope you all had a great time. Thanks for the review.
Best thing to do at Noosa Main Beach
