Take to the waves at one of Sydney’s top surf spots with a surf class at the beautiful Maroubra Beach. Choose from a 2-hour group lesson with a maximum of 6 people and master the basics, or opt for a 1-hour private lesson and hone your skills with one-to-one tuition. Whichever option you choose, your expert instructors will have you standing up and catching waves in no time.
Booked the lesson six days in advance, and received a confirmation email that same day. Two days after making the booking, received an email from the tour operator stating that they were sold out for our chosen date. I did not see the email until a few days later, so didn’t respond.
The original booking did not specify a time, only that the lessons were between 8:00am-5:00pm. I was expecting a follow-up email or SMS with details on the time but did not receive any additional info about exact lesson times.
The day before the lesson, I called to find out what time the lesson was and was told only one time slot was available, which was fine. However, it turns out that had I not called to find out when our lesson was, it would have been considered “unconfirmed” and canceled, despite having been paid in full and having received an email with a confirmation number.
The lesson itself—and our instructor, Eddy—was great. Each instructor had about 4-5 people in their group, so there was enough 1-on-1 time for each person. The weather cooperated so that helped as well. Sunscreen was provided. The provided surfboards and wet suits seemed to be in good condition, but the rash guards hadn’t been washed recently. The one I was handed smelled like someone had just run a marathon in it.
Overall, still a positive experience and would recommend it to anyone looking to learn the basics.
Hugo was a great instructor and it is a great value for 2 hours of surf lessons. I went with my teenaged daughter and she was a bit tired after 2 hours but I think it is necessary to get at least 2 hours in to learn anything.
