What to Expect




Everyone has to surf on world-famous Bondi Beach at least once. With our 2 hour Bondi Surf Experience you can practice your surf skills and learn to stand up on that board. This popular beginner session teaches you how to safely get out and up onto your first wave. You will be trained in a small group setting of 5 students or less, so you will get plenty of help from your instructor. It is a great way to build your surf knowledge, confidence and cultivate your surfing technique. You will be amazed at how easy, safe and enjoyable it can be to learn to surf. If you are concerned about your swimming ability, no worries! Lessons are scheduled around the lower tides & conducted in waist-deep water, with your instructor by your side. So no swimming required! You don't have to worry about a surfboard or wetsuit either. Surfboard and wetsuit rent is included in the deal. So you're all set and ready to rock the waves!
