Location: Bondi Beach
Thanks again for a most amazing experience! The instruction has been outstanding: clear and systematic, supportive and encouraging, relaxed and cool. I’d felt so apprehensive at the start, but from day 1 felt completely safe and well taken care of out there on the waves, whatever the conditions, and simply have had so much epic fun. (Yes, Shannon, the smile on my face is also because of you!) We experienced all conditions, from beautiful sunny days with gentle waves, to rough rainy conditions, and even went out the back! Thanks again too to Ash and Paolo who convinced me to start learning to surf now, i.e. in winter — I’m glad I didn’t wait (until it got warmer). I’ve been telling everyone: you can’t live in Bondi and not try surfing! My life is such that I won’t become a fulltime surfer, but I absolutely understand how amped people get — after my very first lesson I was so stoked and already thinking, wow I’m addicted. And WOW is a particularly special initiative — the two groups of women I encountered have become great communities, who keep in touch and often head out to catch a wave together.
Looking forward to my next WOW lessons!
