Are your kids keen to Get Wet?

Our kids only surf lessons are for little frothers who want to try their hand at shredding without those pesky adults killing their mojo! These classes are for 6 to 12 year olds and they are run daily throughout school holidays and on weekends throughout the school terms. Kids only classes are run with an even lower coach-to-participant ratio of 4:1 to ensure maximum amounts of both safety and fun!

Surfing is such a great sport for all ages and these sessions are designed to give them a taste of surfing and hopefully they love it and want to come back for more. The Intro to surf session is the prerequisite to our Beginner surf programs and we cover the following:

  • Identify the parts of the surf board and equipment
  • Basic surf awareness
  • Recognize hazards in the surf such as rips
  • Learn the steps to standing on a board
  • Ride a broken wave in the white wash assisted by the instructor
  • How to fall off safely in the shallows

What To Bring

We supply all surf equipment so all you need is swimmers, towel, thongs (flip flops) and a bottle of water.

Complimentary Shuttle

Our complimentary shuttle is for participants only, our lessons are held at The Spit Beach and there is FREE all day parking.

Student Rates

Student rates are applicable to anyone who is the holder of a valid student ID – children, adults and international students.

Children Under 6

Children under 6 years are recommended to do a private surf lesson for their own safety.

Children 6-12 yrs

Children 6-12 and under are not permitted to join the group lessons with adults for their own safety, special exemptions may be made if the child is physically capable but that must be approved by Get Wet Surf School management.

Children’s only classes (for 6-12 year old’s) are held during school holidays and most Saturday mornings. Children’s only classes offer a  4 students to 1 instructor ratio for safety.

Parents are welcome to assist small children in a children’s only class if that are competent in the water.

Public Holidays

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS: in line with fair work agreements all of our instructors are paid public holiday rates, so a surcharge will be applied to lessons on official Queensland public holidays.

Had an absolute blast with Get Wet! Had never been on a board before, and they built me up with so much confidence, I didn't want to get off! Great atmosphere, friendly staff!
