"Miles has many years of local surfing and coaching experience and he will really help you whether you are a beginner or a competent surfer looking to improve. I am happy to recommend Miles for your surf coaching needs."

Mark Richards (Five times Surfing World Champion), Richards Surf Shop

'Learning to surf is a skill for life and there is so much more to surfing than just standing up on a board. Just like learning to swim or snow ski correct technique is the key. Surfing is my passion and coaching surfing is my full time job. I’m there in the water for every session building your confidence and surf safety education is a big part of every lesson I conduct. So make a lifestyle choice to become a surfer and surf for the rest of your life! I have friends still surfing in their late 60’s and 70’s, surfing really is the fountain of youth and I’ll teach you to love it just as much as I do.' Miles Niddrie, surfer for over 35yrs!

'If you want a surfing lesson from someone with great knowledge & patience with a mature, absolute beginner - book in with @MilesNiddrie'

Nice comment on twitter from Mel who had a private lesson on Wed 26th March 2013. Thanks Mel!
