Matt is a role model and mentor
Matt has coached our son for quite some time now. His dedication towards his students improvement is second to none. Matt is knowledgeable and passionate about his surfing and this is evident in every session he has with his students. Matt is patient and understanding of each individuals strengths and weaknesses and builds his sessions around their abilities while ensuring the students are building on their capabilities all the time.
Matt gives us so much time to not only help his students become the best surfers they can be, he is a role model and mentor. I cannot recommend Matt more highly.
Matt provides focused training without bombarding the groms with too much information at once
My son and daughter have been training with Matt Hoar for almost a year and their surfing has improved ten-fold. Matt provides focused training without bombarding the groms with too much information at once, allowing young athletes to not only hone their competitive advantage but also finesse their natural style.
Dalmeny Surf Academy is a pro-surfing dojo that delivers clear and insightful feedback backed by session videos that the groms can revisit at home.
My style and approach to surfing has improved far beyond my expectations
As a beginner level surfer in my 30s and feeling like a lost cause, I was apprehensive about my capacity to improve, but when I approached Matt about coaching I knew I’d made the right decision.
Over the last 18 months, Matt has patiently broken down each aspect of surfing in a completely non judgemental way. His attention to detail has taught me the fundamentals of intermediate level surfing - I feel comfortable doing basic rail turns, taking off on steep waves and paddling out in bigger swell. I am now confident to select the right board, to push myself on more critical sections and even judge at local surfing competitions. My style and approach to surfing has improved far beyond my expectations.
Matt has a sincere and tireless dedication to seeing improvements, seen by his genuine stoke when you put his advice into action, both in lessons and free surfing.
Matt’s coaching is certainly not just for juniors or those who surf competitively. Anyone with passion and determination who is looking to improve their surfing should get on board, you certainly won’t be disappointed!

Ultimately, Matt’s encouraging, analytical and thoughtful guidance have made me want to spend more time in the water.
Matt absolutely shreds, but more importantly he’s a great communicator. After working with Matt I have a much better understanding of things that I’m doing right, and things that I can focus on to improve and get the most out of my surfing.
Ultimately, Matt’s encouraging, analytical and thoughtful guidance have made me want to spend more time in the water and provided a foundation for me to keep improving for years to come.
Nothing compares to getting video analysis and feedback from an experienced surfer like Matt.
Nobody knows the waves around Dalmeny like Matt does. In just a few video coaching sessions he has helped me fix some technique issues I’ve probably carried for years.
When I moved to the South Coast, Matt has helped me understand the spots around Dalmeny, and how to surf them better.
Nothing compares to getting video analysis and feedback from an experienced surfer like Matt. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to surf better and have more fun!
