Bought a voucher for my boyfriend to try the surfign lesson. The teachign style was really average as they dont give you any feedback on your performance and the coaches just pretty much stand by the beach and talk to each other rather than focusing on the students. NO

Had a great time in Torquay! Friend and I were running a tad bit late and the girl instructor was kind enough to offer us a private briefing and a runthrough of the fundamentals. Despite that in my opinion, the two instructors had their hands full with everyone's safety

Hi Dory, It's unfortunate to hear that you didn't feel like you had enough 1 on 1 coaching by the instructors. However at the end of the days everyone's safety is our number 1 priority and being out in the unpredictable ocean can always throw a spanner in the works. If you are down in Torquay in the near future, we are more than happy to through in a free board and wet suit rental or maybe its worth jumping a private lesson to get a more in-depth experience.

Coaches were not friendly , didn’t feel like answering some surf related questions. Honestly would be better off hiring board and wetsuit and learn it by myself . Wasn’t a pleasant experience unfortunately , have been to better ones around Victoria

It was ok; maybe more instructors(only 2) needed for a large group (13) as majority were very green and several people needed just a little extra help once we got into the water. Overall the staff were friendly and helpful; but really needed more staff. especially for

I had booked a two hour trial lesson for my partner who wanted to go surfing for the first time. If instructed correctly, a surfing student will be able to stand up on the board and have a lot of fun during the first lesson - I have been to multiple surfing schools in Europe and
