Beginner Group Lessons

The perfect start if you are new to surfing!

Can you imagine yourself riding a wave on the beautiful Gold Coast?

Our 2 hour beginner surfing lesson is designed to give you a taste of the thrill of surfing!

Joining a group of like-minded people looking for something new to try is always loads of fun. We get you down to the beach, run through some basic steps that will have you standing up on your board in the safest and easiest way possible and some basic safety instructions and we get you out in the water as soon as we can.
 
Our surfing instructors are there to make it fun, safe and easy for people of all age groups and levels of fitness. We want you to love surfing as much as we do. If your only on the Gold Coast for 1 day and want an awesome photo of you riding a wave, you might be wanting to tick it off your bucket list or you just want to see why it’s one of Australia’s greatest pass times we encourage you to give it a go. All equipment is provided and where ever possible we like to offer transfers to and from the beach.

For the safety of our participants and for best results our group lessons run with a 6 student to 1 instructor ratio (this is a lower ratio than recommended by leading Surfing bodies)

Students / children surf lesson:

  • This rate is offered to all children and includes anyone with a student card ie: university or international students.
  • Children’s ages must be given at the time of booking
  • Children 8 years and under are recommended to do a private surf lesson for their own safety or during school holidays we offer children’s only classes with 4 students to 1 instructor ratio.
  • Children 10 years and under must have an adult assistance during the lesson for their own safety, if an adult is not able to assist the child an extra instructor can be assigned but this must be prearranged and will incur an extra fee
