Overview
Catch a wave at one of the most famous surf spots in the world with this beginner's surfing lesson at Australia's Surfers Paradise. No need to hone your skills ahead of time or lug a huge board on the plane; this surfing lesson comes with everything included. Enjoy the sea air, sand, and warm waves with a small group, which ensures your safety, comfort, and plenty of attention from your instructor.
Highlights
  • All equipment included for a successful lesson
  • Freshwater showers on-site to rinse off after the lesson
  • Free all-day parking or round-trip transport from select Surfers Paradise hotels
  • Small groups ensure safety, comfort, and plenty of instructor attention
What to Expect
Choose from morning or afternoon lessons when booking; multiple lesson times ensure you can fit this into your vacation schedule. Opt for included transport from your Surfers Paradise hotel or drive your own car to the beach, which features free parking all day.  Meet your small group and instructor at the Spit, a stretch of beach free from high-rise hotels and known for its small, easily rideable waves. Get set up with everything you'll need for a successful lesson. Get some dry land instruction and surfing theory before hitting the water. The instructor will tailor the lesson to your group's abilities; even those who aren't strong swimmers can take a lesson. Walk away with commemorative photos or a USB drive of images from the lesson (own expense).
