What you'll do

My goal is for you to have an excellent surfing experience, whether it's your first time surfing or you are trying to advance your skills.

We will most likely meet at Noosa River Mouth. Alternately, I will contact you with the location that will be best on that day. From there we will collect the surfboards I provide for you and walk to the surf location that I believe will be best suited to your ability and the conditions on the day. Noosa has multiple bays offering a very diverse group of waves. Each wave breaks differently. There are also many other great surfing locations on the Sunshine Coast if you are interested.

For the first 10- 30 minutes we’ll be training on the beach, depending on your ability. Making sure that you have the correct technique and body position on the surfboard before trying in the water. The next hour will be in the water, catching waves and getting feedback with my assistance.

This experience is unique as we can change location to find the best waves for you. With small group sizes you get a lot more out of the session. I can focus just on you, giving consistent, constructive feedback that adherers to your specific needs.

Surfing is my passion. Surfing has inspired me to travel the world in search of new waves, countries and cultures. I learnt to surf in Noosa with my dad, it has been my home break for 20 years. I know every cove and corner like the back of my hand. I am a qualified surfing instructor with Surfing Australia and (ASI) I am also a qualified lifeguard. I have worked in New Zealand and Australia at various surf schools and as the head Surf Guide at a surfing resort in Indonesia.

My goal for you: have a fun and exciting experience while teaching you to surf in the best waves. I am an enthusiastic and fun surf coach who's priority is you.

Tomas is exceptionally knowledgeable and a great coach. Tomas was great at teaching fundamentals both on the board and reading the surf, and helped to correct errors through the session. This was my first time on a board and he coached me to stand and ride by the end of the session. Enjoyed it greatly and thankful for Tomas to getting me up.

My wife and I had a great time with Tomas. Although we’re beginners he was patient and adapted the morning to suit our needs. You can’t ask for a better guide than a local who grew up surfing these beaches 👌🏽👌🏽 Definitely recommend; we’ll be back for sure

This experience was amazing! Tomas was super knowledgeable, charismatic and encouraging. He got both of us up and riding waves in no time! Such great value and definitely worth the money for the one on one time. Would do again!

I had a 1.5 hour private session with Tomas on a long board. He was super passionate with his instructions and his knowledge of the local surf conditions. I'll be doing another session with him when im back up in a few months

Couldn’t recommend enough! Tom was a great instructor and a really down to earth guy. Felt very safe in the water and learned about safety when it comes to surfing, as Tom is also a surf life saver. The equipment provided was great. We were beginners with some prior surf experience. Tom helped us learn to improve key technique faults which was extremely helpful, you get much more out of this than a large group surf school. We will be back to do more sessions to improve further :)
