Back in the fifties surf movies and photography became popular around the world. Surf movies usually ended with a punishing big wave finale. Magazines started to appear, and big gnarly waves always made the cover. Surfers all over the world were willing to do anything to appear in these movies and magazines. Motivated by cameras; “Kodak Courage”, was the term used to describe the willingness of surfer to jump into the deep end to get the shot.


Let’s be honest; we all like to get good photos and share them with our friends. There is something magical about capturing that awesome memory that will last forever. We want to help you achieve this. Even though we don’t surf 10 ft waves, we will go to great lengths to capture that perfect picture. Including a few nosedives in the process…

So, depending on the conditions, most of our surf lessons are captured on camera. So you have the opportunity to show everyone shots of you riding the perfect Gold Coast waves. At the end of every lesson, we will show you a slideshow of the pictures of your experience so you can see yourself surfing and laugh at you wipeouts. If you like what you see, you can purchase the pictures on the spot, and we will put them on a USB drive for you.
