Just did a two day high performance camp. Improved my surfing no end, got some great advice on what to work on and how to improve further and to top it all off it was done whilst constantly having a laugh. I couldn’t recommend highly enough
Everything was just great. It was my first surf lesson, I could progress, learn a lot and also had fun. Matt is an excellent coach. He cares and loves to teach and wants you to learn as much as you do. I will continue surfing and i will never forget my first coach Matt who got me hooked to surfing….

My 11 year old boy and I had a fantastic time for our very first time at surfing. Our coach Matt was awesome : he was fun, very efficient (we managed to stand a few times) without minimizing our safety. Location (Redgate beach) ideal too. We hope we can it make it back to Margaret River to have another lesson!
