Learn how to surf with Perth Go Surf, an ASI accredited surf school, located at Brighton Beach (southern end of Scarborough Beach), Perth, Western Australia. It’s one of the Perth’s favourite locations for learning to surf.

Perth Go Surf offers group and private surfing lessons, beginner and intermediate surfing certificate courses, surfing guide trips, team building, surfing awareness for kids, adults, parties, school groups, backpackers and corporate. Large groups can be accommodated.

Perth Go Surf is owned and run by a father and son team, Andy and Tom “Bomber” Johnston. Andy is a veteran of the sport with over 35 years of surfing experience and has surfed all over the world. His passion and love for the sport lead naturally into teaching his son Tom “Bomber” Johnston to surf at a very young age (basically before he could walk). Bomber has since traveled extensively around the globe, surfing and teaching surfing to people from all walks of life. He’s been surfing since he can remember, has represented Western Australia in the sport and has been coaching surfing for 10 years.

Bomber, Andy and the Go Surf team are all accredited surfing instructors, holding surf rescue, and senior first aid qualifications and working with children checks.

Hi Matthew, That's the aim! Improve your skills one step at a time. It can be a frustrating sport at times but so rewarding once you master certain aspects. That's why the team at Go Surf Perth are fully accredited coaches who have tons of knowledge to share with the customers. Look forward to seeing you down again soon for... More

I was booked on a 4 week course and it was really good! Definitely recommend!! They changed the location depending on surf conditions which was good, and them having wet suits and suncream was really handy.

I visited Australia for three weeks, and over that time I had three lessons with the Go Surf team. My friend and I had private lessons with both Tom and Chris, and both turned out to be top blokes. They are knowledgeable and friendly, and both committed to giving you top class surfing tuition. We both improved loads over the... More

This is what we love to hear. Someone who gives surfing a go and then finds out how fun and rewarding the sport actually is. 1 Lesson then turns into 4, 5 6 ..... and the sport of surfing becomes a hobby. Cheers for the great feedback and HAPPY SURFING. Cheers, the crew @gosurfperth More

From my first lesson with Go Surf school I noticed the instructors were professional, experienced and fun. The thing I like the most about Go Surf is the amount of knowledge and tips the instructors pass on to get you surfing like a pro in no time. They ensure everyone get one to one time and teach you how to... More

Hi Kelly, We always look forward to having the students for your group down at Go Surf. I know I speak for the other coaches when I say it is the highlight of our week. There is something special about teaching students who have had little/no experience in the surf. Their excitement and 'froth' is so evident and it definitely... More

I did a private lesson with a friend and their knowledge of all things surfing and their hands-on approach got me standing up on my first lesson! Would definitely recommend.

My 7 year old had a lesson, the adults and kids were split off into 2 separate groups. 3 instructors took the lesson, they were attentive to all kids even though there were different skill levels. They started off practicing on the surf boards on the beach before going in the water. The little kids get tired and are able... More

Hi Rhonda, Thanks for the great feedback. One thing we definitely do realise with the kids classes is that they can and do get tired which is why we only surf for 1.5 hours. This ensures they don't get tired, cold and loose focus. I'm sure by the end of his surfing course with Go Surf he will be off... More

Hi Matt, I can't take all the credit mate :) Standing up in the first 10 minutes of a lesson is indeed a great success and it takes a natural ability as well as sound instructions. Keep working on the solid foundation of skills that you have learnt! Cheers Tom and the crew @gosurfperth More

Instructors are very helpful, great places, great people. They provide all the quickest including wetsuit and softboards. You learn a few things about the waves, wind and weather and how to stay safe in the water.

We had our first out of 4 lessons last Tuesday. We were lucky that the two of us were the only ones who booked that day. Tom was a fantastic teacher and was giving direct feedbacks during the lessons.
