Occy is a great bloke and was so patient and helpful out in the surf. His son was out with us and together they made sure we got some good waves and had a good time. I am a bit of a beginner and didn't think I'd do well in the conditions. but they got me out there and surfing way above my expectations for the day. I'd recommend them to anyone who was thinking about doing this. Cheers Occy and Jay!

I booked the experience for my husband as a surprise birthday present, Occy is his all time surfing hero. It was such a surreal experience for my husband, surfing Dbah against the wall which they had to themselves, Occy was a super down to earth, genuine, top bloke, that made the whole experience so worth while. We highly recommend it!

Such a great experience to be able to go for a surf with a world champion. Takes your skill level into account and will take to to where the waves are best. Made it even better when Parko paddled out and we were all just chatting

My husband was stoked to spend time in the water with Occy. Super chill friendly guy, and such a thrill spending a couple of hours surfing together. Recommend to anyone that grew up watching the raging bull surf!
