Fantastic experience

My boys aged 9 and 10 had the best time. The instructors and all were amazing. A most memorable experience for my children whom had never tried surfing before.

It was hard to catch the wave only after practicing surfing for a couple of times + for the first time. I hope next time it will be improved more.

My first surf lesson was with Go Ride a Wave in Surfers Paradise and overall the experience was great! Staff was really nice and I felt comfortable being in a water with them. In the beginning we had a shot safety and technique lesson and after that we had plenty of time to actually surf in a water. Highly recommended!

Surfing at "Go Ride A Wave" was one of the best experience I've ever had. Our 2 week holiday would not have been the same without surfing at Go Ride A Wave. Customer service was stunning and price was incredibly friendly! I would recommend this company to everyone who is going to Surfers Paradise, I won't forget how much fun... More

I had a paddle board lesson and it was excellent, it was my first time on a paddle board and the instructor was very helpful and took it all at my own pace. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to try paddle boarding.

It costs a bit more than the other surf schools but the instructors were very friendly and engaged. Unfortunately the weather wasn t that good but it s nothing that we can change. The school was good.

We had around 8-10 of us in the group with two coaches. All of us had never touched a surf board before but the coaches were amazing! Started from the basics and they made sure everyone had a go at standing up. They were patient and would give advice on what we were doing wrong if we weren't able to... More
