You look the part. Your hair is crusted with salt water, you’re rocking a ripcurl wetsuit and you have a 7 ft board under you. The next set of waves is approaching and you paddle hard to get on the wave. The wave is breaking beside you as you move from your knees to feet. You’re surfing…
Manly Surf School is a leading surf school in Australia, training everyone from beginners to professionals. Bring along some friends to learn from a group of instructors who have dedicated their lives to sharing an Australian passion.
Manly Beach, Manly NSW 2095
Kids had fun, the instructors were patient and made sure kids had a chance to pop up and surf. I was on edge watching the kids in the water filled with blue bottles, most of them got stung. Not a bad location, but we had to walk a fair bit to the lesson area and at the end carry the surf boards back... which was tiring... but oh well...
Nice place to spend time learning to surf. The instructors were great, as was the experience! However, I would go with a smaller group if I were to do it again.
I dropped into the surf school and was made to feel very welcome. I have only surfed once before a very long time ago but my instructor (Thomas) said he would get me standing on the board before the end of the lesson and he did. I was pretty pleased with myself as a new surfer aged 66. Thanks guys.
Amazing surf school, almost learned to surf in a single lesson 😎
Fantastic! Ed and Graham our instructors were just great. My son and I were first timers and they were so patient and helpful despite some challenging surf conditions on the day. Great experience all round.
I would not recommand this to anyone. There were way too many people in the water in a limited space (you were told off is you went too far) and it was practicly impossible to actually catch a wave as we kept bumping into one another. So frustrating !!!! Instructors were too few to be able to help you out, although they all seem nice. Many cheaper and less crowded options available along the coast.
AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!!! A HUGE Thank You to Manly Surf School for welcoming Me to the water & teaching Me how to Surf. Palm Beach: Big Thanks to Blake(private lesson) & Crew at Palm Beach. Amazing, The Best Day EVA!! Blake was so passionate & carried an attentiveness that was second to none. Up on the first day, working on technique & confidence & making sure that I enjoyed The experience. Fantastic Bud, Thank You. Long Reef: (Group lesson)- Again, Huge Thanks to Breno & Crew at Long Reef, waves were not great as it was right on high tide; Today was a great learning experience as We surfed in a group, much of the lesson was spent wiping out. Still a hugely constructive experience. If You really want to get this: I would probably recommend a couple of private lessons(1 on 1) before joining a group lesson. Manly: Massive Thanks to Rob & Crew at Manly. Fantastic day, highly attentive instructors both in the water & out. I was able to correct My errors of 2nd lesson & really had a ball. I started actually riding the waves rather than just getting up & riding straight. The tide was high with an onshore wind, but still, a great session. All in All: Manly Surf School; 5 Star: 🏄🏾🏄🏾🏄🏾🏄🏾🏄🏾. Massive Thanks to All of The Instructors & behind the scenes staff that make Manly Surf School possible. A highly devoted team with a great passion for Nature, the Ocean, & making sure the participant really really enjoys the experience. Thank You MSS. All the best for 2018; I hope to see You out there.
