Overview

We are a mobile surf school that searches out the BEST waves on any given day for our surfers. The peak winter surfing months (Nov- Mar) we provide a daily "POP-UP" surfboard rental shop at Freight's Bay where we do our surfing lessons. We specialise in teaching surfing & act as surf guides taking advanced surfers to premium surfing breaks when the swell is just right. Surfing lessons are designed for "newbie" and "wannabe" surfers to find those surfing wins quickly & safely. We welcome any beginner or intermediate surfer to join our surfing lessons and boost their wave count, work on their technique & surfing performance or simply share a fun surfing session. Our GoPro cameras will take lots of videos of our surfers and all of content is FREE! Our surfboard rental quiver of shortboards, mid-length surfboards & longboards has surfboards suitable for beginners and intermediate surfers as well as high performance and traditional shapes for advanced surfers.
