Bondi Surf Lesson

This popular beginner course teaches you how to safely get out and up onto your first wave before you’ve had time to worry about falling off.

Looking to start your surfing journey? Join in with other locals on our fun and safe two-hour beginner lesson.

Surfing in small (max 5) supportive groups you will learn all of the surf basics including; warm-up, paddling, catching waves and standing! All equipment and expert instruction is included in the lesson price.

It is the perfect time to start something new, challenge yourself and become a surfer. The professional team looks forward to showing you the amazing benefits of surfing, including fitness, fun, mood booster and a way to spend some time in nature.

You will be taught in a small group setting so you get plenty of hands-on help. To build up your knowledge and confidence, first start out on the beach and you will be taught how to recognise surf conditions and practice your surfing technique before you get into the water.
