manly surf school is fantastic, have two lessons to go and cant wait
I have only completed one of my three lessons purchased, it was the perfect day weather wise and even though our group was large we had assistant staff who got out into the surf and helped the group. I am really looking forward to my remaining two sessions.
The lessons and staff at Manly Surf School were fantastic! It was a big challenge for me and the team made the lesson really interesting and fun. I'll be back!
What about photographs? Photographs of your stylish surfing moments are also available on the day. Private sessions are available, call us for more details.
Be warned it’s not as easy as the pros make it look. In fact, I’ve heard many an international comedian state that it would be easier to eat handfuls of sand and drink a bucket of salt water!
But they weren’t in the company of Matt Grainger and his team of friendly, Surfing Australia qualified instructors. Matt himself has been teaching surfing since 1984 and is more than qualified with many years experience competing in pro events as well as being Head Coach of the NSW team, Level 1 Presenter and current NSW and Northern Beaches Champion. The surf school team are all Surfing Australia Level 1 qualified instructors, all hold senior First Aid and Advanced resuscitation, have competed in ASP pro events and have a minimum of 5 years teaching experience and 15 years surfing experience. So you are definitely in expert hands.
