Who wants to "get their surf on"?
"Get your surf on" enables you to experience the thrill of surfing and enjoy maximum time in the water. You'll arrive at the beach in your swimmers, listen to a quick safety briefing and join a group of like-minded people looking to master the waves.
At the beach, we'll run through some basic steps and techniques that will have you standing on your board in no time. After which you're 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?
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, as it's very important to do what we can to get to the beach on time.
Fill out a quick medical form, grab a rash vest/wetsuit, a board and head down to the beach.
Listen very carefully. The instructors will run through an important safety briefing about the conditions you are surfing in on that day. They will also show you some techniques to help you stand up and maximise your 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! The instructors will take your group down to the water. But before your big toe touches the water, they will run through the formation you need 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 instructors tell you, it should be pretty easy to stand up on your first or second wave.
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.
After spending about an hour and 20 minutes in the water, it's 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.
Time to rinse off the sand now. Use one of the outdoor fresh water showers and bathrooms, freshen up and get dry. 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.
