Torquay Surfing Academy Reviews
Today was a birthday present to myself and I would describe the experience as magical. I learnt more from "curly kev" in 2 hours than I did mucking around on my own hiring boards over the last 20 year... more »
We decided we would learn to surf! OMG! Lots of fun and laughing as we wiped out many times, but finally, the wonderful instructors got each of us to our feet and surfing, even if not text book style,... more »
Legendary crew! Nothing cookie cutter or corporate about this place. We've done 4 lessons with Kev, and he expertly knew how much information to feed us each time without it being too overwhelming. He spends a good amount of time on the beach explaining before we get into the water, which really pays off. By our fourth lesson, we were straight into it and really feel we owe our abilities to Kevin! The owner (Brad) was incredibly generous as well, letting us borrow straps and giving us a great deal on our lessons. A lot of places will teach you to get up right away and "feel" like you're surfing, but this place will start you on the foundations needed to progress. It doesn't happen overnight! It's got to be one of the toughest sports to learn but wouldn't want to learn anywhere else. Thanks again!!! Taylar and Jason
Friendliest guy in the shop. The place was packed this morning and he helped everyone. Even helped me strap the board to the car. Equipment was great and cheap to hire with a wetsuit. $40 for 4 hours for everything and let our friends extend the hire time by phone.
