First time surfing with my friends and after a few minutes we were all able to stand on the board. Frank is the person you are looking for if you want to learn quickly.

Had three amazing days on the beach in Gisborne with Frank and his two surf teachers. I tried surfing for my first time and I did very well on the board.

We've never surfed before, but Frank got the both of us standing up on our first try. He told me that I was a freak because I got up and was able to turn and ride the green-faces within my first hour. Maybe he was lying, but at the very least he was so enthusiastic and encouraging that it made surfing almost easy! Not only did he teach you skills for your first time out, but he was equipping you for future trips. It was a really fun and helpful lesson. We definitely recommend for anyone traveling through Gisborne! It's a bargain for the lesson and experience that your get.

Incredible opportunity to learn to surf just within a very short time, very good and motivated surf coach, flexible times, board and wetsuit provided. Beautiful beach and you will be prepared to surf by yourself wherever you want to.
