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).

Super surf lesson on Bondi with Claire & Gus. These guys took a random group of Europeans and Australians and had us all surfing much quicker than I’d thought possible. They made this a brilliant experience on the waves with so much knowledge, guidance and...More

Nice lessons to stand after the first hour

Dylan was very attentive, took care of every detail, starting from the instructions before we entered the water or when he share tips on how to stand up easier and quicker. He's very experienced and watching him riding the waves later was wow. Fun team...More

Great beach, great instructors, great staff.

Gabriella, Dan, Eddy & Jamie made sure that the surf lessons were easy to book, make changes and great fun. The beach itself is a bit crowded, which made surfing a bit more difficult, but still a great experience.

They have multiple start times throughout the day. I surfed from 8am to 10am and then again from 1pm to 3pm, but there were other sessions starting later and earlier.

Hi! In Sydney, summer is usually November- February ish and even then the sea is cold! I think it really depends on how brave you are, and if you're ok with it being quite cold (even with a wetsuit it's rather chilly). I... More
