Let Us Take Your Students Surfing!

We offer fun, safe beginner surfing lessons on the pristine beaches of Port Fairy, Warrnambool, and Cape Bridgewater. 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 two or three 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.

Teacher Reviews for Our School Programs

“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.”

Steve 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!"

Helen Teacher, Horsham Primary 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."

Jason 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."

Kate 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."

Rodney Teacher, Ballarat Gold Swimming Club

"The team at Go Surf did an amazing job developing confidence in the water with our students. Having an understanding of water safety (especially at the beach) is truly a skill for life. The knowledge our instructors were able to impart with our students about having fun in the surf but also the importance of keeping yourself safe was invaluable. Above all, they provide a safe, positive and most of all fun environment for participants. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Our students (and staff) had an absolute blast!"

Ben Teacher, WAVE school, Warrnambool
