Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What better place to learn to surf than on world-famous Bondi Beach? Here you'll find fantastic waves, sunbathing beauties, year-round sun and the coolest beachside vibe anywhere. Join a two hour group surfing lesson, or for the ultimate experience, take a private surfing lesson with your own personal instructor.
  • Learn to surf on Bondi Beach with expert instructors
  • Chose from small-group or private lessons
  • Feel the exhilaration of standing up on a wave in an iconic surf spot
  • Surfboard fitting and gear are included in the lesson
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).
