I had a great time learning to surf and now I'm addicted to it. I'll be back again, and on the next visit I'll stay somewhere near Bang Tao Beach.

Thanks for the surfing lessons, your a great teacher. ;)


Thanks for lessons. It was good to be able to stand up. I'll try and get a third lesson in January or February once setlled back into New Zealand.


I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic surf lessons you gave me at Bang Tao Beach. I really enjoyed it!

Attached you will find some pictures.

Take care!

Best regards,


Now I´m back to Norway (actually almost a month :P).

I wanna go surfing again in Phuket when I go to Thailand next time ;)


Nice meeting you and thanks for the great surf lesson last Thursday.


We had a blast! Thanks, Rick!

Some experiences are forgotten, some are remembered, and others become a part of us. Thanks again for a great lesson and an experience that will stay with me forever.
Time to hit the waves in Okinawa!



Hi Rick,

Thanks again for the great lessons, I'll make sure to sign up for more next time in Phuket.

Thanks Rick. We had a great time today!


I'm back in Hawaii now. That 6'2" Piranha board is killer...rides just like one of my Glen Minami's. I surfed Kamala right after we talked...it was crankin' Then I caught Kalim in the evening with three Thai local guys out.

It was putting out solid 4 to 6 foot down the line rights. (2 to 3 Hawaiian) I was pumped...even got a little backside barrel on my last wave.

Anyway, it was great meeting you. Your boards are the finest...

I'll be back. =)

received my ordered board and accessories today. The postman had some trouble finding me, but it all worked out in the end :-) Everything looks great by the way, and I want to thank you again.

Thank you very much, it has been a great pleasure doing business with you :-) You are very professional and answer my constant nagging quickly, and if I ever get the change to recommend you to others I surely will!!

Now i just need to find the waves :-D

Thanks again and have a nice day :-)

André =)

As I am french, i have the tendency to complain quite a lot ;-) much more then I should mention when I am happy about something.

I have to say that I am impressed with the speed of the package (i just received the T shirts). The quality of the T shirts is excellent, the design of the with T shirt Polynesian style is awsome and the neck logo (to write the brandname and how to wash it) makes it compete with Quicksilver shirts type range that cost more then 1,500 THB....

You can be sure that when I need shirts (or my wife or my daughter), I'll get back to you.
-Amir, Thailand

Just received the go pro floating device. As usual very fast and in perfect condition.

im just writing to say thank u for the clases and i hope i can use the knowlodge to enjoy surf around the word. Have a great year with your family and friends. Good waves and blue sky in phuket. Thanks,


We have bought your surf board and some other accessories. This was just the reminder that maybe you still remember us =) Because we wanted to let you know that the board was "tested" in the waters of Bali and Sri Lanka and my son is very happy so we made a good choice by buying a board from your shop for which we thank you very much.


I left Phuket a week ago and i didn't have time to say goodbye.

I would like to tell you thank you for the great surf lessons. I really enjoyed it and you are a very good teacher! I Hope to continue to surf :D

I hope to come again

Best regards,


Many thanks to you and also Kay for the lessons for past few days. I really learnt a lot and enjoyed :)


Hi Rick and your team,

Thanks for giving me a extraordinary experience to learn how to surf and enjoying more the ocean!
