My daughter joined on Matt's kids surf holiday camp this week and she had an absolute ball. Her confidence in the water improved so much and she was catching waves on her own in no time! Thanks so much to Matt, Brandon, Jason and Kelly. Amazing and encouraging coaches. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone who is wanting to learn to surf!

I booked a guided day surf trip through Matt. From the start, he was extremely helpful and friendly. It was a pleasure to be shown around by Matt who has such a passion for the CT area. Needless to say, his local knowledge was of great value. I will certainly be back as soon as possible and would highly recommend to anyone no matter your surfing ability.

My 2 kids(8yo & 10yo) had a blast with Matt in Big bay last week, saying he was a super cool instructor and surfing is so much fun!! They can’t stop talking about taking a lesson with him again. We will definitely give him a shout next time we visit our family in Cape Town.

My daughter who is five years old had never been on a surf board. Her Grandma organized for a lesson. Within five minutes my daughter was surfing. More importantly the people that worked there were amazing. Noble took her first two lessons, everything that he said was positive and Emily thought that he was amazing, Her third lesson was with a young lady, whose name I have forgotten, she was equally positive. The man who organised everything was great. A message from the UK. We are STOKED that we met you. Many many thanks for making it such a great experience. See you on our return.
