What you'll do

We run comprehensive lessons for all abilities and are passionate about making sure everyone leaves having had a fantastic time but also learnt and improved their surfing skills. We run our lessons so that everyone feels safe, comfortable and has an amazing experience in a super enjoyable, relaxed and unthreatening environment.
In our Beginner Learn to Surf Lessons, we start with a brief introduction to surfing, the equipment and the techniques we will be using. Everyone will then be fitted out with a rash shirt and if required, a wetsuit and of course sunscreen. Then we hand out the safe soft learn to surf boards to each participant and head to the beach. You will then have ample opportunity to practice all the techniques and movements on the sand with plenty of feedback being given by our instructors.
Then it is time to hit the surf and put it all into action in the waves. Our instructors are in the water with you for the duration of the lesson giving feedback and tips throughout the entire lesson to help everyone improve as much as possible.
There are plenty of laughs, plenty of fun and plenty of waves for everyone to have a sensational experience in the surf with us.
Other things to note
Our Beginner Lessons are always in shallow water, so you will always be able to stand. You don't need to be a great swimmer, just comfortable being in the water. Come ready for a heap of fun!!

Where you'll be

We will be surfing at the beautiful Greenmount Beach - ideal for learning to surf & often a missed location when tourists visit the Gold Coast. We are at the southern end of the Coast, out of the main tourist hub of Surfers Paradise & Broadbeach. In Coolangatta & Greenmount, you will find a much more relaxed laid back vibe than the far busier hub of the Coast. We are based in a little hidden, often unknown gem which love to share.

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 119 reviews.

Jamo was great, he is a very good teacher and has alot of patience. Im in my 50s learning to surf for the first time. i was very nervous, Jamo was awesome and has a lot of energy, he got me standing on the board and has given me the confidence in going out on the board and continue to practice what ive learnt.

Lessons were very easy for beginners with no experience to follow. Waves in the area were lesser than other famous spots along the coast but it was chosen for that reason to ensure the safety for beginners. There were lesser people in the area too so that's a plus.

非常好的冲浪体验,没玩过的推荐体验一下,是的,体验一下。因为如果你平时不怎么运动,没有强壮的肌肉,那拖着2米多长的冲浪板在海里走10分钟,绝对让你你精疲力竭了,想要放弃的念头

Dan is really nice and patient to teach us, it was a great experience, even though for people like me not good at swimming can be very enjoyable!! You may find a new hobby after this experience like my friend does.

This experience was the highlight of our 3 week trip. Dan was really friendly and chilled and knew his stuff. It was a small group so everyone was given individual guidance when needed. But we could also surf on our own if we didn’t want help! Our only regret is not staying longer in Byron so we could surf more!!
