Absolutely awesome lesson today! The coaches are friendly and were able to give me heaps of help and tips to continually improve. 10/10 would give this place a higher rating if I could!

The twins further developed the skills they learnt 18 months ago (pre COVID-19) ably assisted by the excellent staff. The location is very good for beginners but the hidden secret of Get Wet is the fantastic staff. Highly recommended for anyone looking for beginner lessons regardless of age.

huiyuan_L June 2021

Very helpful teaching and advice! So happy that we managed to stand up on the board! It was a super fun experience!

dazV4693UZ June 2021

Awesome experience. Super friendly environment and made to feel at east straight away. Our instructor Jasons teaching technique on land and in the surf made it a pleasure to learn. He was keen and genuinely excited to see our progress. And at the end some great photos to remember the experience by. Highly recommend the team at Get Wet Surf School.

Giuliafromaustralia June 2021

Fantastic 2hours. We were only 2 students and basically had a private lesson with the instructor. He taught us a very easy to learn tecnique, gave us plenty of time to practice both on land and in the water and plenty of feedback on our form. By the end of it, I was catching my own waves and was able to surf.

liam3899 June 2021

I attended the beginner surf lesson at The Spit (Main Beach) on Saturday and was standing up and catching waves within the hour. During the lesson, I was given some really valuable tips to correct my technique. I highly recommend Get Wet Surf School for people of all abilities!

Donnibabe May 2021

These guys are great! Super professional. Teach you the surfing technique, and get you in the water! They will teach you how to read each wave, point your board in the direction of the wave and be able to ride it in! Also teach you about the ride, ocean patterns. Pretty cool. I stood up twice then fell over haha.

amytG9214AV April 2021

Awesome lesson! Instructors were great at explaining the basics and helping us catch a wave! So much fun !!

I tried surfing for the first time and was elated with the experience. i was so happy the first time round that I ended up taking a second lesson a few days later with get Wet Surf school. My trainer Sam for both the sessions made me feel very safe, shared all the key techniques and overall made the class so much fun. He is extremely hard working, willing to go the extra mile (in this case catch the extra wave) and shared practical inputs rather than focusing it all on theory. The other trainer, Jason who had joined Sam for the second session was equally competent, offering suggestions and corrections while maintaining the fun element. Even the entire staff including Emma were very helpful, addressed all my queries before the classes and managed to arrange transport. Overall a very competent and professionally run surf school with employees who enjoy what they are doing. Side note: Spit at Main beach is the best place for beginners as the waves are easy to ride and the beach has comfortable depth (less than 5 feet) for not so confident swimmers.

The session was great. Really practical for beginners. Sam was very helpful in demonstrating all the needed instructions to learn as quick as possible. Great experience. Will definetly continue.

av3nger March 2021

Wow! We will definitely come back here again. I booked a group lesson for my partner. When we arrived, she was the only student. Many will have a requirement for the minimum number of students. But not here. To my surprise, they went through with the lesson. And what was supposed to be a group lesson turned into a private one. Just for that I was ready to give a 5 star review... But wait! There's more! The staff is super friendly, the instructors are great. While I was hanging out on the beach with my daughter, I saw my partner going from a swimmer to a surfer. She was impressed, I was impressed, my daughter was impressed. Solid 5 stars.

patsyandleigh January 2021

We both did it!! First time ever learning to surf and at our age! (64 & 66yrs old). Awesome
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
