If you ever wanted to learn to surf Coolangatta is the place for it. 10 months of year the water is warm. Surging is easy with a good coach. Even as an over 50 I could stand on the board from lesson 1

Had a great surfing lesson at Kirra with the guys from Go Ride a Wave. Ended up just being me in the class lesson so it was excellent. I even managed to get up and go for a few short rides. Loved it. Highly recommended.
