We’ve packaged the cream of the crop. Surfing Australia provides a surf experience like no other. From intro surfing lessons that get your toes wet to more technical courses and multi-class packages, these professional surfing experiences put you in good hands. For instance, at Bondi Beach, surfing lessons are lead by Brenda Miley, champion surfer and National Woman’s Director of Surfing in Australia! A private lesson will have you feeling confident in your own surfers' paradise.
In the Gold Coast, you may travel to a secluded beach (yes, we know a little gem that’s not swarming with people) where the instructors are so confident that you’ll learn to surf during their two-hour surfing lesson that they even offer a pop-up guarantee: if you’re not standing by the end of your surfing lesson, you’ll get another one at no cost! The feedback online suggests this is one not to miss.
For a surfing experience with a difference (and good waves guaranteed) don't miss URBNSURF Melbourne, Australia's first surf park. North of Melbourne CBD, this aqua park offers surf conditions suitable for beginners and pros. It's a great day out of surfing that's perfect for those based in the city or just passing through and wanting a surfing fix.
You can also book a private surfing lesson at numerous locations throughout Australia. Two-time Australian Merrick Davis and his team of ace instructors will give you their full attention as you either learn to ride your first wave or brush up on some of your skills.
Looking for more than an afternoon at the beach? Opt for a 3-lesson surfing package. Day one breaks down the basics and gets you up on your two feet. You’ll follow up with a class focusing on essential manoeuvres like a floater, a cutback and a re-entry. By day three, you may be confident enough to test your mettle by attempting some more challenging moves!
For a slightly more serene day on the water, we also offer several stand up paddle boarding tours in Sydney, Brisbane and St. Kilda. Keep your balance as you absorb the striking scenery in each of these unique coastal locales. Tour guides will point out all kinds of wildlife and take you to a few hidden spots that’ll leave you wide-eyed.
Of course, if it's your first time on a surfboard, it’s not as easy as the pros make it look. But it’s also not as hard as you might think (especially when you’ve got the right team showing you the ropes). Learning to surf is like starting a new chapter in your life. Surfing lessons operate from Mon-Sun and make a great school holidays activity. It’s not just about sharpening your physical abilities; surfing, for many, is a path to pure Zen. Don your wetsuit or rash shirt, slap on some sunscreen and get out there today!
