We know you have a lot of questions about learning to surf and we are happy to answer them all.

That’s why we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions to our instructors. We hope this might help clear up any doubts you have about surfing and our surf school.

Are our programs suitable for weak swimmers?
Yes they are! Our lessons are held in waist deep water. So your feet will be touching the sand at all times.
Is there a minimum age?
Safety is our priority, Children’s only lessons are held for children from 6-12 Years . Children 12 and up can join our group lessons with adults. Children under 6 must do a private lesson.
What happens if the weather is bad?

Conditions at the Spit are generally very good for beginner lessons. However, if we feel that conditions may be too rough for our participants, we will reschedule for a different date or refund your money.

 
What do I need to bring?
On the beach you will only be needing swimmers and big desire to surf and have fun. We will provide you with a wetsuit, rash shirt, sunscreen and of course … a surfboard.
How do we get to the lesson ?

If you have your own car you are best to drive to the Spit as the parking is free all day and you can stay and enjoy the best beach on the Gold Coast.

If you require public transport, the bus terminates at Seaworld so we run a shuttle service from several pick-up locations. See our pick-ups list in About us tab

Is your shuttle service free?

Our shuttle service is complimentary for participants only who book directly with us online. If you are booking through a 3rd party website, conditions apply.

The shuttle is not available for spectators as we need to reserve the seats for those surfing. If the participant is under 12 we allow 1 adult to accompany them in the shuttle.
