We booked Manly Surf Guide for our 12 year old daughters birthday with 9 of her friends in December, and the day was a huge hit. Ryan and his team took care of everything, they were great and incredibly patient with ten 12 year old girls! If you are looking for an easy, hassle free kids party with a difference, this is highly recommended. My daughter loved it so much, she can't wait to give surfing another go. Thank you so much for making our daughters birthday memorable!

I was travelling with a large group to Sydney and we booked beginners surfing lessons. Ryan and the team were great; super-patient and a lot of fun with our group. Everybody came away from the day saying it was one of the highlights of their trip. If you want to learn to surf in Sydney, this is the company to do it with!

We booked two days surfing with Manly Surf Guide. They were very accommodating of the dates we wanted. Picked us up on time, were very friendly and the surf lessons were great. The equipment was all in good condition and the group was nice and small which meant we got good one on one time with the instructer. Cant wait to go back for our next lesson!

We had a private lesson for our family (mom, dad, son & daughter) during our holiday visit to Sydney. Ryan was very accomodating to schedule our session based on our needs. Chris was our instructer and he was awesome! It was so much fun to learn the basics of surfing at the beautfiul DeeWhy Beach. We all enjoyed ourselves and were able to stand up on our boards by the end of the session! We would highly recommend Manly Surf Guide to begin your surfing experience! FUN!!!
