We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.

Try your hand at surfing the waves on the beautiful southern end of the Gold Coast renowned as the ideal learn to surf location on the Gold Coast. Under expert tuition you will be given step-by-step guidance and encouragement to enjoy riding your first waves.
Your Professional Surf Instructor will talk through the surfing lesson, encourage you to ask questions and constantly remind you what it's all about, having fun! The Group Lessons last for generally about 2 hours and in this time it is expected that even beginners will come away with the memory of that first wave on your own and this will last forever! At the beginning of the lesson, your Instructor will explain and demonstrate the various movements and techniques you need in surfing so you begin to get a good understanding of what you should be doing.
You then will get all ready to head to the beach including putting on a rash shirt and making sure you are all sun creamed up. We then head down to the beach for you to have a practice of the movements previously demonstrated. When we do get into the water, you should have a really good understanding of what you need to do. And then we hit the water and the real fun begins!! You will be helped and pushed onto as many waves as you would like by your surf instructor who is with you the entire time in the water, to help you onto waves, give feedback and assist you to have a really enjoyable and successful time surfing! At the end of your lesson, you and a friend will receive a showbag.
All the Instructors are professional fully qualified Surfing Australia or International Surfing Association Surf Instructors who also hold First Aid, Emergency Care and Lifeguard qualifications. Your Instructors are professional fully qualified Instructors to provide with you not only great fun where you will learn a lot about surfing and the waves but to experience it in a very safe and unthreatening environment. Renowned for safe and reliable conditions, Greenmount Beach is the perfect spot for beginners.
Group lessons are generally 2 hours long. However if there are only the 2 of you in the lesson, it may be a little shorter. Lessons take place all year round 7 days a week except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Your professional instructor will be in the water with you throughout and generally, you will always be able to stand in about waist deep water. Basic level of confidence in the water's important & understanding of broken water management helps, although you do not have to be an exceptional swimmer.
