Beginner Lessons

Our group Gold Coast Beginner Surf Lessons generally run for two hours (dependent upon the number of people in the class – if there are only a couple in the class, it may be a shorter lesson). Group Beginner Surf Lessons are maintained at a maximum of 8 students per Instructor in the surf to maximise student attention, help, supervision and safety. With all our surfing lessons, your professional surf instructor will get in the water with you to help you learn and progress.

Intermediate Lessons

This Intermediate Level is for those surfers that are surfing out the back and paddling onto and competently taking off on small to medium size waves (chest to about head high). In our Gold Coast Intermediate Surf Coaching program, our experienced instructors will work with you to begin to utilise the whole of the wave, to surf top to bottom in the more critical area of the wave, to work on your bottom turn and start to develop competent top turns.
