Full description
Get picked up by a complimentary shuttle bus from the meeting point, 30-minutes prior to your lesson. Enjoy a short, scenic drive to a beautiful beach known as The Spit, the Gold Coast local's favourite surf spot.

Hop in the water with your fellow surfers and coach at your side to personally help you catch the waves. Learn how to stand up and ride the waves to the beach. Ride past another surf coach who will be taking photos of you and giving you lots of handy tips. If you're doing well, head out on your own and start tearing it up.

When the lesson is finished, head back to the beach, take a load off and get ready for a group photo with your classmates and surf coach. Get changed back at the surf bus, view the photos from your lesson, and have a laugh at some of the wipeouts.

First class location, waves and attention!

First class location, waves and attention. We surfed at a beautiful local beach that we never would have discovered otherwise. The weather & waves were perfect for beginners. We had plenty of attention from the friendly coach with a maximum of 6 of us in the class. He taught us a great technique which had everybody successfully standing up & surfing. Loved the photos, I’ve already changed my profile pic!
