Let Us Take Your Students Surfing!
Surf Courses for Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Schools
GO Surf School offers a range of surf safety, surf education, surfboard riding, and paddleboarding 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.
Go Surf is all about kids learning to surf in a fun, exciting and safe environment. Surfing is a ‘whole of life’ sport. Unlike many other mainstream sports, surfers are still getting out in the environment (even in winter), with their friends, travelling and keeping fit, healthy and active well into their 60’s and beyond. Our surfing programs are the key to developing the skills kids will embrace for a lifetime!
Go Surf is acutely aware of many parents concern about their child entering competitive sports too early. Surfing is essentially a non competitive sport and the our surfing programs focus is on participation and enjoyment, NOT on winning. Most surfers will surf their whole lives without entering a single competition. Competitive surfing is something that surfers can graduate to later on if they want wish.
