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).

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.

Good intro to surfing

Group lesson with 5 mixed ability beginners. Waves were a bit small (really can’t hold that against the school). Instructor was friendly and provided individual feedback to each of the students. It took about 30mins of a 2hr lesson to get in the water, if...More

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.
