Manly Surf School Reviews
Had my seventh lesson this morning. Couldn’t be more grateful to the whole Manly Surf School team for introducing me to surfing. I would highly the surf school to anyone wanting to give surfing a shot... more »
Igor our teacher was great. I learnt so much in such a short time. It was fun and the water was warm. Even manage to stand. more »
The young staff was enthusiastic and alright but the old staff was obviously a racist that he picked three WHITE PEOPLE only from the classroom (leaving all Asians behind), claiming their levels of experience were different, when my friend and I already told him we had the same level of experience as those three. Not to mention that he was wrong and one of them had to come back to “not-experienced Asian group”. @ManlySurfSchool please train your employees to treat ALL customers well, regardless of the skin color.
I have been surfing with the boys (and occasional lady) from the surf school for 4+ years and the instructors have been nothing but supportive and helpful. I started out a as a rookie not knowing anything about surf, rips, tides and most importantly how to stay safe in the water. I still am learning from them and the ocean every time I go in. They place utmost priority on safety and for that I am very grateful:) Cheers boys and here’s to another year of safe surfing yewwww 🤙🏾
