About Bodie's School of Surf
The School of Surf is a mobile set up, which allows you to maximize your surf adventure by going to the locations with the most ideal conditions on any given day, with safety always being a priority. Bodie teaches all the surf lessons himself and brings along 30 yrs of teaching experience. Whether you are a total beginner or an eager intermediate you can sign up to join an open group lesson, book a private group class or take a private one on one session. All lessons are 2-2.5 hrs long and the cost includes transportation from Oistins and nearby accommodation, rash guards and use of a GoPro camera to capture pictures and videos of your waves, which are sent to you at no extra charge. We also provide hourly, daily and weekly board rentals as well as surf tours. Windsurfing lessons and rentals are also available at a quiet beach near to Oistins on the south coast.

Bodie took a group of our kids (and a few mums) for a surf lesson last weekend. He was so patient and great with the kids! My daughter fell in love with surfing and talks about it every day!

Bodie somehow managed to successfully teach 4 first time surfers to pop up and surf from the first attempt. He did so by explaining the required technique quickly and efficiently whilst keep the attention of 3 young children. It was an exhilarating experience.

Bodie's School of Surf is just that: A surf school. They're not just pushing you into waves. We were a group of six with widely varied skills and Bodie (and Ezra) gave unique and specific instruction to all. They're also a riot to hang out with. Highly recommend!
