Our day with Pete was nothing short of magical! The Great Ocean Road is stunning itself - but with Pete’s insight and personal connection, we had the opportunity to experience it in a way we never could have on our own. Everybody felt at ease from the moment the day started. Pete was really kind to get to know us and made sure we each got the most out of the day. I would highly recommend Pete’s tours over any other option.

This experience for me was great :) Pete made us feel welcomed with the friendly and caring atmosphere he had provided. He is an excellent story teller and surfing coach, guiding you through the waves and back and always looking out for your safety! Apart from taking away an excellent surfing experience, I also got a new friend :)

Pete is the best! He was so friendly right from the beginning til the end. It was my first time surfing and I had a lot of fun. The surfing was cut short due to bad weather but Pete made up for it by bringing us along multiple places with scenic views. Eventhough it was short, Pete really made sure that everyone felt comfortable being in the water and he prioritised safety over everything else - which was good. We stopped by at Lornes to have lunch and I had the best milkshake while I was there. Pete then took us on a drive along the road towards Twelve Apostle where theres a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. I feel like my friend and I really connected with Pete during the experience and we would definitely come see him again when we return to Australia in the future.

Would definitely recommend going on any adventures with Pete. He was very friendly and humble. He grew up in Australia so knows all the local spots that you wouldn't normally get from a regular tour company. He made sure to chat before the day started to get my expectations and was willing to adjust if there were any special requests. He can accommodate surfers of all skill levels and is not shy about sharing his favorite spots. We found a perfect, windless, peeling break that was so fun to surf in. This guy is quality!!

Pete’s knowledge and passion unload onto you from the moment you shake his hand. The drive is filled with stories and questions and just great chat! Getting out to scenic beaches and just a day along the coast was perfect. Petes super flexible and attentive, offering a ton of options to experience this amazing area. If you’re looking for a taste of the Great Ocean Rd and the surf along the way — book with Pete!
