Learn to surf on one of the world’s most famous beaches during a surfing lesson on Bondi Beach in Sydney. Get customized, hands-on instruction from qualified instructors and learn the basics: from timing and technique, to standing up, and catching your first wave. Beginners and returning surfers are welcome and instructors can help students at every level with group or private lessons.

What to Expect

Meet your instructor at Bondi Beach and get comfortable with your equipment. Start with a surfboard and wetsuit fitting and then begin your lesson on the sand.

Learn basic techniques for paddling out and popping up on your board and then practice on the beach while learning some Australian surfing history and lore.

Once you are ready, you'll take your board into the water to try catching some waves. Your instructor is by your side to offer advice on effective paddling and timing to help you get up on that first wave. Spend plenty of time practicing with attentive instruction to help you improve.

Choose from a private 1- or 1.5-hour or a small group Lesson ( six people max).
