2 Hours Beginner Surf Lesson
Who wants to "Get their Surf on"?
Our beginner lesson for people who just want to jump on a board and experience the thrill of surfing. This is a great lesson for first timers or some one who has maybe done one or 2 lessons and just need a bit more help with the basics. If you want to "Get your surf on" you will arrive at the beach in your boardies frothing to get in the water after a quick safety brief. You won’t be ready to join the pro’s at Straddie but we do guarantee we will do everything we can to get you standing up and catching a wave in the white wash in the first 2 hour session

What to expect
Get there: Our Shop is located behind the Seaway Cafe, at the end of Seaworld Drive main Beach.
The seaway cafe is located in the carpark and parking is FREE all day.
Check in time is 15 min prior to your lesson, to find us just walk down the right hand side between the Cafe and the amenities block and come in the back gate.
Get Ready: We really need you to be in your swim wear when you arrive so we can get the class started on time, we will check you in, make sure everyone has arrived, grab a rashie/ wet suit and board and head down to the beach.
Get Started: This is where you have to listen, the instructors will run through a really important safety brief about the conditions you are surfing in on that day followed by some really easy techniques to help you get up on the board as easily as possible and maximise your vertical time on the board and of course how to fall off safely. Once the instructors are confident that you are all good to go, its then time to ….
Get Wet : This is what you came for. The instructors will take the group down to the water together, before your big toe goes in they will run through the formation they need you to stay in so everyone gets a great crack at it and the instructors can give you tips. If you are doing what these expert instructors are telling you should be pretty much standing on your first or second wave.
Get Vertical: At first the instructors will help by pulling you onto the best waves, but it won’t be long before you can pick your own and go for it. Some people learn faster than others for one reason or another, but the instructors are there to help everyone achieve the best they can.
Get Sharing: after a good hour and 20 min (if you can last that long) in the water you should be tired, satisfied and have a big smile on your face, met some new friends and want to tell the world. It’s now time for the Instagram group pic so you can share with your friends. if the conditions are good and everyone has been catching lots of waves the instructors will do their best to grab some photos of you ripping, after the group photo we will all head back to the shop and they will show you your happy snaps on the the big screen, if you like what you see and want to grab them for your next facebook profile pic you can grab a USB with all of your shots for just $25
*** the instructors will do everything they can to get some good shots of you but sometimes its just not possible- they will not compromise your safety for a photo.
Get Dry: you will be a little salty and sandy so if you want to have a quick rinse off now is the time to nip off quickly to one of the outdoor fresh water showers and bathrooms and freshen up and get dry. Time to say good bye to your new mates and if you LOVED it, chat to the instructors about coming back for some more.
