The Lesson:

GO Surf School will teach you the skills of surfing and how to handle yourself and your surfboard in the ocean, while having a stack of fun along the way. Beginner and Intermediate surfers will also learn how to assess surf conditions and identify potential risks. We provide coaching to all ages and levels of surfing ability. Our instructors are there to help you learn to surf and provide advice on all questions related to surfing. We hope that you’ll love surfing as much as we do. We’ll get you up and riding in no time!

What to Expect:

Roll up at the beach at your start time with your swimwear on.
Your coach will introduce themselves and gets you sorted with a wetsuit and board.
You will start with some beach-based technique and surf safety info. We are big on getting it right on the beach and getting you ready to hit the waves.
You then hit the surf in waist deep water and waves suitable for your ability.
Surf coaches will help get you up and riding by pushing you into a few waves, giving feedback on your technique, keeping an eye on your safety, encouraging you and maximising your fun.
Surfers will leave the water approximately 15mins prior to the end of the lesson.
A feedback session with goals for your next surf lesson is done before getting changed.

Where to meet:

We meet at the Portland SLSC at the start of the lesson.
Address: 1669 Bridgewater Rd, Cape Bridgewater VIC 3305

What is provided:

All equipment is provided including surfboards suited to your abilities. Our equipment is the best available on the market and produced specifically for surf schools. We use soft, stable boards that are easy to balance, paddle, stand and surf on for intermediate and beginner surfers. Quality Rip Curl and Quiksilver wetsuits keep you warm and coloured GO Surf School rash vests easily identify you in the water.

What to bring:

Surfers need to wear a swimsuit or boardies and bring a towel and lots of sunscreen. Don’t forget a camera to document the fun you will have.
