Kim and Matt are a great combination. Kim is great with the admin, makes sure you are comfortable before your lesson even starts. Matt is the instructor you want when teaching those waves. He is friendly, patient and taught each of us according to our level of knowledge. I didn't know anything at all but he got me riding waves quite quickly (very small waves) I loved that he talks through what you can improve on after each attempt. I felt really comfortable with him. He didn't rush me or make me feel like I wouldn't get it. He was very encouraging and really takes the time to help you. My sister knew more than me so he challenged her more and she really enjoyed herself. I don't know what other surf schools are like but this is the experience I would go for. Pricing wise, they are market related, but in opinion, they are better priced because they help you with the rash vest and board. Matt and I have a year long plan to make me a surfer:) #bucketlist underway

Matt and Teagan were excellent coaches! They have plenty of patience and are good at what they do. We learnt so fast how to surf.

We booked with Living the Dream Surf School without having any experience or knowledge about surfing. They took great care of us, made sure we were safe at all times but also that we were enjoying ourselves. The coach picked the perfect waves for beginners so we were able to stand up on the boards and made good progress on our very first day. Kim, who took care of the organizing was very friendly and gave us great advice for the rest of our trip. Very good experience!

Kim and Matt run a great school. I had 3 lessons, the first with Bongani, and the next two with Matt. Great people, and really good teachers - I learned to surf! Matt showed me a couple of secrets I hadn't heard of before and next thing I was up and riding the waves, magical!!

My girlfriend and myself had tried surfing a few times, in different places. We were never very good. UNTIL MOW 🤙 Matt is an excellent teacher and Kim was also incredibly helpful with our entire trip to Durban.
