What You Can Expect

Surfing Lessons in Sydney

Royal National Park Surf Trip south of Sydney

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.

I highly recommended this school because they took us to a very secluded beach where we could surf all day without running into other people, this is very important when you first learned to surf. I went to Bondi the day after this lesson and found people everywhere in the water, I cannot avoid running my board into them. The lesson was good and plenty of surf time. We surfed so much, we were completely worn out and still had 2 hrs left to surf. The instructor kept encouraging us to continue surfing but none us had the strength anymore. By the way, your knees will get scratched up pretty bad, so wear a knee pad until you get good. The sand will scratch up your knees and the salt will attach your wound, that's what wears you out and can't surf anymore but no worries about injuries.

Yay! I learned to surf. I got a bit scraped up, but rode in some waves and had a good time. Overall it was a great tour -- the beach was lovely, the guys who instructed us were fun and professional, and lunch was good. I did wish we got to stay about an hour more -- we got there at 10.30ish and left at 3, with a break for lunch and instruction time. It didn't feel like I got to surf as much as I would've liked.

Excellent day! The lessons were great and managed to stand up at the end of the day. The lunch was a good selection of stuff excellently prepared. With anything like this what you put in is what you get out of it.

Great fun day out!!! Lessons could have been more detailed, especially the second one when the conditions changed. But people were awesome and food was great!
