Dive into the heart of Australia's surfing culture when you meet your group in Sydney and drive 45 minutes south to the beach where you spend the day learning to surf. In total, expect four hours of lessons divided into two separate two-hour sessions. In between, have time to relax, eat a delicious barbecue buffet lunch and take in the scenery.
Your instructor takes you through Royal National Park by four-wheel drive. Zip over the sand to a long empty beach with smaller waves that are great for learning to surf. Start on land with a safety briefing and basic maneuvers before moving onto the water. By the end of the day, most people are able to stand up on their board. The lessons progress steadily, building your skills and confidence in a relaxed fashion.
Bring your swimming gear and a camera on your tour, which includes the use of a wetsuit and surfboard along with lunch and refreshments. After an epic day surf instruction and beach fun, your guide returns you to central Sydney in the early evening.
