Schools Surfing



“Thank you so much for the amazing surf lesson today. The organisation and professionalism of your company and your staff are amazing. The instructors today made sure that every child from our school stood up on their surf board, something I didn’t think would happen. The smiles and comments today from the kids have been one of the best highlights of my teaching career. Watching them all grow in confidence and believe in themselves and what they could do brought me to tears. The encouragement, support and above all patience from the instructors today was freaking outstanding! From the bottom of my heart, thank you. You made a bunch of country kids feel so so special and important and made their teachers burst with pride!”

Let us take your students surfing!

Fun, safe, beginner surfing lessons on the pristine beaches of Port Fairy, Warrnambool and Cape Bridgewater. GO Surf School specialises in teaching surfing to primary and secondary school groups. In fact, we’ve had literally thousands of kids go through our fun-filled programs. See the testimonials from their teachers here – or if you really want the gossip from the kids, jump on our Facebook page!

GO Surf School offers schools an unparalleled surfing experience. The best qualified and most experienced staff, the latest equipment including quality beginner soft boards and premium brand full-length and sealed wetsuits, the highest safety standards and especially…the most fun!

Talk to us about a customised package to suit your students’ needs. We can teach over 90 students in one day but strictly follow student to staff ratios of one instructor per eight students. This means a big group might be broken down into 2 or 3 session times throughout the day.

Surf Courses for Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Schools

GO Surf School offers a range of surf safety, surf education, surfboard riding, body surfing and paddle surfing programs all year round. All programs are tailored to the school and age of the participants and are run in conjunction with Surfing Australia’s Safe Surfing Program.

We focus on fun, fitness, surf skills, ocean awareness, safety and team morale building. Our students learn surf safety (rips, shore-breaks, wipeouts), surfing skills, paddling, standing, turning, surf etiquette and to respect the marine and coastal environment. Whatever the age, shape or experience of your students, we cater for everyone and are ready to GO when you are.

“The crew at GO Surf School run a fantastic program in a safe but exciting environment. There is a genuine emphasis on including every child no matter what level their surfing skills. A great way to have fun and learn some important beach safety skills at the same time. Our Year 5’s haven’t stopped talking about it since returning from camp! Thanks to the guys from GO Surf for their hands on and enthusiastic approach.”


Teacher, Ballarat Grammar JS

The kids absolutely loved the surfing. Thank you for making it such an enjoyable experience for them. We completed a survey about their favorite activities on camp, and surfing came out with more votes than any other activity we did. We will start planning soon for next year’s camp, and surfing will definitely be in the program!


Teacher, Horsham Primary School

We had THE most fabulous time learning to surf with GO Surf School. They were so wonderful with our students (Prep-3’s), and explained things in a fun way that everyone could understand. We giggled about fish nibbling our toes and chicken wings for the rest of camp! Students were able to learn the basic skills, and successfully stand up, (or part way up) on their boards. Thank you GO Surf, we will be back!


Teacher, Merino Consolidated School

The kids had a brilliant time surfing for the first time (and so did their teacher!) Instructors were helpful, enthusiastic and full of energy, which enabled the kids to quickly pick-up the necessary skills to surf successfully. Really easy to book with too which made my job of organising the camp easier. Definitely recommend GO Surf to other schools.


Teacher, Holy Trinity Lutheran School Horsham

The kids had a fantastic time and were still talking about it the next day. Cape Bridgewater is such an ideal place for many different adventure activities and very safe for beginner surfers. We’ll definitely be back next year.


Teacher, Swan Hill College

What a great team building activity for the club. The coaches were fantastic guiding the beginners through their paces and encouraging the more experienced ones in the group to extend themselves. A fun time had by all. Ballarat Gold Swimming Club say thank you.
