“Paradise on the waves with brilliant instructors!” I have done various lessons with Walkin’ On Water by myself and with my 2 children. I can not fault it!  I even went out on a lesson with my 12 and 8 year old thinking it could end up a disaster, yet was brilliant. Dan managed to instruct us all, even though we were at different levels- lots of laughs!!! Look forward to our next lesson!

I just wanted to drop you a note on behalf of Danielle and myself to thank Walkin on Water for such a great experience last Thursday when we had our surfing lesson. Your professional and encouraging approach was extremely impressive and I am sure went along way to easing the nerves of everybody!! As I said to you on the day, I am now hooked and after living close to the beach my whole life, I can’t believe that it has taken me until I was 35 to give surfing a go! Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you up there next year for some more lessons!

I wanted to say thanks for an awesome lesson when we were in Australia. I had the best time – thanks for your help and your patience! I can’t believe that you got me standing – it was the best feeling and I can’t wait to get back for more!

Gosh, we would love to both go surfing again. We had sooo much fun and laughed a lot. And, your excellent instruction, expertise, patience and sense of humour truly added to our experience. If I was in the position (living in Australia versus in the mountains in Colorado) I would most definitely recommend your surfing school and you as an instructor again. Coming from another professional in the ski business, please take this as a great compliment.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Miguel. We all had a great time. And thanks for being so accommodating! I’m trading in my snowboard for a surfboard!

Hi Jamo,
Thank you for another fabulous SurfGroms program last week. Sabine and Xavier really enjoyed level 2 last week with joey and Brendon. They got so much out of the week and really built up their confidence, particularly dealing with a variety of conditions.  They’ve hired soft boards this week and keeping up their practice every day.
It worked well to combine the level 1s and 2s. Joey and Brendan were great with all the groms in the group. They built up a special trust with the kids from the outset and were always therefor them with huge smiles and endless encouragement. And their knowledge was immense.
Looking forward to more groms with you next summer. Until then, keep up the great work and thanks again.

Best surf lesson I have ever had! Never done a review before, but Walkin’ on Water deserve this one. These guys are so great and so professional, managing to juggle four of us with very varied levels of ability. Personally I improved loads in the few hours in the water and (most importantly) all of us had loads of fun. I’ve done a fair few lessons with different people in the past and this was the best lesson I’ve had yet. Would highly recommend them to anyone, of any level or age.

I am back in NZ now, my surfing lesson yesterday was the absolute highlight of my Australian trip. I really cannot believe you actually got me to stand up on my first lesson. I am completely hooked. Off to buy a wetsuit tomorrow and practice… You are a great teacher, Thanks!

Thank you for the lesson today. It was something we never thought we would do but very glad we did. We appreciate your enthusiasm for the sport and your patience with us. Thanks again!

We had another brilliant morning! Thanks again to Dan for his manner with the kids – he did a great job in helping them feel confident in the waves. They all want to be surfers now – not such an easy life choice in Melbourne!


Have you surfed with us? We'd be stoked if you could leave us a review!
