Can you imagine yourself riding a wave on the beautiful Gold Coast? This 2-hour beginner lesson is designed to let you experience the thrill of surfing. The surfing instructors are there to make it fun, safe and easy for people of all age groups and levels of fitness!
Who wants to "Get their Surf on"?
"Get your Surf on" allows you to get on a board and experience the thrill of surfing. It lets you enjoy a maximum time in the water. Arrive at the beach in your swimmers, pay attention during a quick safety brief and... "Get your surf on"! 

Join a group of like-minded people looking for something new to try. We will go down to the beach. There we will run through some basic steps that will have you standing up on your board in the safest and easiest way possible. Some basic safety instructions will be given as well and then you will be all ready to get out in the water and ride some waves. 
Our surfing instructors are there to support you. The lessons are suitable for people of all age groups and levels of fitness. 

What to expect?
Get there: Arrive at the trailer at the Spit at lesson time. Pick-ups can be arranged from Surfers Paradise, Main Beach and Southport. Make sure you are at the pick-up location at the time you have been informed. We do everything we can to get to the beach on time.

Get Ready: Fill out a quick medical form, grab a rash vest/wetsuit and a board and head down to the beach.

Get Started: Listen very carefully. The instructors will run through an important safety brief about the conditions you are surfing in on that day. They will also show you some easy techniques to help you get up and maximise your vertical time on the board. You will even learn how to fall off the board safely. Once the instructors are confident that you are all good to go, it is then time to ….

Get Wet: What you came for! The instructors will take the group down to the water. Before your big toe touches the water, they will run through the formation they need you to stay in. That way everyone gets a good experience and the instructors can give tips to all the participants. If you do what the expert instructors tell you to do, it should be pretty easy to stand up on your first or second wave.

Get Vertical: In the beginning, the instructors will help out by pulling you onto the best waves. It won’t take long before you can pick your own waves and ride them. Some people learn faster than others so the instructors are there to help you achieve the best you can.

Get Sharing: After spending about an hour and 20 minutes in the water, you will be tired, yet satisfied... with a smile on your face. It is now time for an Instagram group pic. If conditions are good and everyone has been catching waves, the instructors will do their best to take some action photos of you. After the group photo, we will head to the carpark where you can view your happy snaps. You can buy all of your shots for only $25.

Get Dry: Time to rinse off the sand now. Use one of the outdoor fresh water showers and bathrooms, freshen up and get dry. Time to say goodbye to the instructors and to your new friends. 

Do you need a pick-up?
Pick-ups can be arranged from several, central complimentary pick-up locations in Surfers Paradise, Main Beach and Southport. Are you travelling from Brisbane by public transport? Then take the train to Helensvale and hop on the 704 bus to Seaworld. We can pick you up there just 5 min before the lesson begins. Are you coming from Broadbeach or Griffith University GC? Catch the G-link tram. We will pick you up at The Main Beach G link station about 15 minutes before your lesson.

After the lesson, we can drop you off at the same location where you were picked up.
