What to Expect

Learning to surf is a must for any visitor to the Gold Coast. Boasting stunning beaches, endless stretches of sparkling coastline, perfect weather and warm water, the Gold Coast is one of the most iconic surfing destinations in Australia.


Enjoy the perfect introduction to your surfing journey with a 2-hour surf lesson at one of the renowned beaches, choosing between Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach. Both of these locations provide the ideal conditions for learning to surf, and with our fully-qualified instructors guiding you in waist-deep water, you will be getting to your feet in no time. With more than 28 years of instructional know-how, and all instructors being qualified surf lifesavers, we provide a safe and fun environment for your surf experience.  


You will first be given an introduction to surf safety before hitting the water. Your instructor will teach you the basic tips and techniques to get you surfing all the way to the beach, and having fun while doing it. Surf lessons are offered twice daily so come and give it a go!


Surfers Paradise

The aptly-named Surfers Paradise is just that – a haven for those who pay homage to the gods of the sea by attempting to become one with the waves. The beach here is a golden stretch of soft sand that provides the perfect ambience for a day of learning to catch waves.



Broadbeach has quickly become the destination of choice for holidaymakers coming to the Gold Coast. It is where you will find the city and beach lifestyles combine, boasting a brilliant stretch of coastline, a spectacular skyline, a haven for shopping and ideal beginner waves on safe, patrolled beaches.

As a general rule we suggest anyone over 8 years old, we find younger children don’t have the attention span to last 2 hours.

The eldest person we have had is 81 years old, and yes they stood up! Come on give it a go! You’re never too old!

The way we teach surfing, you don’t have to be that fit at all! All our classes for beginners are taught in waist to chest depth of water. So there is no need to paddle out in your first lesson.

We recommend anyone who is into surfing should lead a fit and healthy lifestyle.
