Start the day with hotel pickup by your guide, who is a professional lifeguard and surf instructor. Drive through the city to the beach, stopping to see some interesting spots along the way.
Discover Bondi and gain an understanding of its importance in Sydney’s beach lifestyle as you visit Bondi Beach and the headquarters of the famous Bondi Lifeguards. Learn about the colorful history of Bondi, in addition to the roots of surf lifeguarding. Top off this portion of the day with a photo op on the beach with a Bondi lifeguard.
Next, hit the water for your surf lesson. If you are new to surfing, begin with an introductory small-group surf lesson. Your guide teaches the basics of surfing in small groups with a maximum of five people. Cover the safety rules, and how to warm-up, paddle out, catch waves and stand on the board. Your lesson includes the use of all equipment, such as surfboard, wetsuit, rash vest and sunscreen. If you already know the basics, your guide adapts the lesson to suit your abilities.
After working up an appetite, have lunch at a favorite local beachside eatery with superb views. Choose the dish you like from the full menu and enjoy it accompanied by a cold beverage.
