These surf lessons are great value and if you want to make surfing a regular activity in your life and get further advanced, then the surf lesson package is for you. You will learn how to use surf etiquette, read surf conditions, identify good waves to catch, paddle through waves, get longer rides, stand up faster, turn forehand and backhand, position yourself to catch good waves, take off on unbroken waves (when conditions allow for this), develop a bottom turn and understand different surf boards and find a board thatís right for you. Our lesson packages are not just a great way to learn how to surf but they are also a great way to meet new people who share the same enthusiasm for trying something new and fun.
Adults that have a surf lesson with our surf school can learn to surf in one of the most ideal locations for beginners on the Gold Coast. You will only ever have a maximum of 6 people in your surf lesson and whenever possible we always try and separate the kids from the adults, so those loose limbed youngsters donít make us feel like uncoordinated giraffes.
We hold our surf lessons at the Spit which is just a short 10 minute drive north of Surfers Paradise. The Spit is one of the few areas on the Gold Coast that has been saved from development and is the ideal location for beginners to learn how to surf. The Spit has a break wall which not only allows for the formation of good sand banks but also reduces the strength of the stronger sweeps that occur on the more exposed beaches along the Gold Coast. It really is the beginner surferís paradise!
