First time our entire family age 8 and up went surfing. Lesson was great and instructors were really helpful in the water selecting the right waves to ride. Put lots of sunscreen on the back of your legs and face!!! Zinc even!! Went back for a second day and had even more success!

Even though my sister and I were in the lowest fitness and ability percentile :) in our group, we still had a blast and made amazing progress due to a patient and well humoured instructor who had a knack for treating every member in our group in the best way to get the best out of them. We saved $10... More

We booked a private lesson for 13 adults and kids who were mostly first-timers. The instructors were very professional and friendly. Considering we did not pay for one to one tuition they were able to help the kids quite a lot which was helpful as the waves were powerful so it was hard to get the board out far enough.... More

We had a great time, but thought there was too many people in the class to instructors (especially considering the cost for the 4 of us)

Surfing was way easier up in Noosa than in Gold coast so I really recommend doing it there. Our teacher was awesome: he gave us tips, asked questions about our travels and was really there for us the whole lesson. I loved my lesson very much! I was able to ride a wave all the way to the beach twice... More

My teen and pre teen loved their first lesson and were then hooked on surfing. Ended up doing the 5 day package as the Go Ride a Wave people were very accomodating, letting me upgrade to the 3 day package after 2 lessons and then upgrade to the 5 day package after that. Kept our kids busy while we parents... More

My two children and husband had a surf lesson from Jammo. They had a fantastic time and were quickly standing up on their boards. Such a great location and perfect conditions for learners.
