School, Corporate & Private

Surfing lessons for school groups, sporting teams, corporates, & more…





2 Hours

Opening Season


If you have a special group of 10 or more you are practically bringing the fun along with you so you may be entitled to a special group discount. Get Wet can provide surfing lessons for school groups, sporting teams, corporate groups, birthday parties or hen’s/buck’s parties and create a package that’s just for you.

Our beach experiences are held on the Spit Beach, Seaworld Drive at the northern end of the gorgeous Gold Coast. The Spit Beach is primarily a local’s beach, which on week days is virtually empty so we can cater for larger groups with lots of space. The Spit is protected from most of the unfavourable surf conditions that the open beaches are exposed to due to the rock wall and the Sand Pumping Jetty which create a safe bay and is located less than 10 minutes from the heart of Surfers Paradise with ample free parking for large buses.

All equipment is supplied and our highly qualified staff will do everything they can to ensure a wonderful experience.

Catering options are available for morning or afternoon tea or lunch provided by the Seaway Cafe.

School groups and sporting teams

Get Wet are the leaders in providing an unforgettable Gold Coast beach experience for your school group or sporting team. We offer a range of activities to cater for all ages and swimming abilities.

For many students growing up in Australia, the beach culture is part of their childhood experiences, but we understand that there are also many who do not have access to these experiences.  Get Wet can provide a package for your group, catering for groups of up to 100 plus, to provide participants a taste of the “Aussie Beach Culture”.

Experiences include:

Beginner surf lessons
Bodyboarding lessons
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Surf Swimming lessons with qualified lifeguards
Beach Volleyball
Beach Cricket
Beach Soccer
Tug of War

You can choose all or just some of these experiences for your group and the duration depends on the activities and size of the group.

We know that students respond better when their learning is fun, outdoors and they are rewarded with a team building activity as part of their learning journey.

Get Wet Surf School has been working with education providers locally, nationally and internationally since 2005. We have tailored outdoor education and cultural emersion experiences in conjunction with business partners for primary, secondary and international school students.

Based at The Spit on the Gold Coast, an incredibly diverse location with endless possibilities for educational experiences, Get Wet has a range of Aquatic Experiences and beach activities to enhance any school excursion.

Community engagement with education providers and students is so important to strengthen relationships with community organisations.

We can work with you to organise activities such as tree planting and clean up days followed by a special reward from the list of activities that we can provide.

Corporate Groups

Get Wet caters for many corporate groups, team building and incentive travel clients. Conferences can get a little tedious for the delegates, but we have a lot of awesome feedback from many corporate clients who find that organising a team building activity like one of our beach experiences, prior to a day of seminars, can enhance the delegates experience and get them off to a great start for the day.

Hen’s & Buck’s Groups

The days of booze cruises are almost a thing of the past, more and more bridal parties are looking for a weekend of fun experiences to share with their Hen or Buck. We can offer a memorable 2 hours of fun with fabulous photos. The Hen’s package includes a 2 hour surf lesson, all equipment, veil for the Hen for photos and a toast for the entire party with bubbles after the lesson. The Buck’s package also includes all equipment, ice cold beers to toast the Buck at the end and an optional “Mankini” for awesome photos.

What To Bring

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

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.
