What you'll do

I can grab you from most Surfers Paradise & Main Beach accommodations in my surf shuttle bus, then head to a beautiful local beach that's rarely discovered by tourists. You'll throw on a rash vest or a wetsuit, grab a surfboard and head down to the beach for some brief but detailed instruction. I will teach you a tried-and-tested technique, that will get you standing up and surfing in no time! Once you are successfully riding the waves I will try and grab the camera to take some awesome action photos! After your 2 hour surf lesson has finished, it will be time to head back to the surf trailer to shower, get changed and check out your photos!

This was my first time trying to surf. Andrew wasn’t there but two of his “coaches” were there. We had plenty of attention from them since our group was rather small - 5. The weather conditions were quite rough and the waves were choppy with occasional rain but I still had a lot of fun. Be prepared- it’s rather exhausting :)

Great experience, perfect location. Weather was pretty miserable, but despite that we still had an awesome couple of hours. Loved that we got straight into it and our instructor was encouraging, enthusiastic and fun.

What a wonderful experience.. never had a surf lesson before... I found the whole two hours uplifting and very positive. Instructors were kind, authentic, very knowledgeable and provided clear feedback. I’ll need another lesson though.... lol But I’ll be back again next year when I’m on vacay from Toronto! I highly recommend their services!
