After making your own way to Bondi Beach, which is located just six miles from Sydney CBD, meet your surfing instructor and get fitted with a surfboard, wetsuit and other gear for your surfing lesson. 

Your instructor starts the lesson on the sand, introducing the gear and basic techniques for paddling out and popping up on your board. Practice your technique on the beach, and hear some entertaining stories about the history of Australian surfing. Once you are comfortable with your dry run, pick up your board and step into the warm ocean waters to try catching some waves. Your instructor accompanies you into the water and helps you to improve your paddling and time your pop up. Have plenty of customized attention and time to practice in the water as you learn.

Whether you are a first-timer or you want to refresh your skills and test the big surf, the waves and weather at Bondi Beach are perfect for year-round surfing. Have the choice of a private 1- or 1.5-hour lesson, or learn in a small group with a maximum of six people. See more details under Itinerary below.


The Bondi Surf Experience - Small Group Lesson (2 hours):
Join this popular beginner course that teaches you how to safely get out and up onto your first wave. Learn in a small group setting of six students or less, with plenty of hands-on help. To build up your knowledge and confidence, start out on the beach and learn how to recognize surf conditions and practice your surfing technique before you get into the water. Then it's off into the ocean, where you start off in 'broken waves' — the white foam created after the waves run their course. You'll be amazed at how easy, safe and enjoyable it can be to learn to surf.

Private Surfing Lesson (1 hour or 1.5 hours):

For the ultimate in surfing instruction, why not get your own personal surf lesson? Private lessons are great for those wanting lots of feedback, for families looking to learn on their own, or for people who want advanced or specific instructions not found in standard group classes. With a dedicated instructor, you're bound to learn at your fastest-possible pace with a lesson tailored to your individual needs.

Let’s Go Surging staff Jake and Hugo were fantastic at helping first time surfers. They were patient and made sure to suit all surfers’ needs

Worth it! The instructors are friendly and helpful. Had a blast surfing with this group. Would recommend to anyone visiting Bondi!

The surfing lessons were fun! Our instructor really gave his best to teach us how to surf.

I absolutely loved doing this! I have never surfed before, but the instructor took his time to teach each person who was there for lessons patiently and professionally. By the time we were finished, I was able to surf some of the small waves. I even signed up for an additional couple of hours afterwards to use their board and suit to practice a little. Overall, it was a great day!

Lessons were great and we had a lot of time to attempt to get up on the board. The instructors were out there in the water reminding us of the steps and trying to help us surf. The only complaint I'd have is the continuous salt water in my face, but that was my own fault! :

My Cousin thoroughly enjoyed the day!! He couldn't walk after and even managed to get on a wave for a little while!!

Overall an excellent experience - although the weather was a little windy which led to choppy waves and challenges getting out to the waves. Great instructor. Might have done private lessons to get more tries rather than waiting for others, but I might have gotten too tired anyway!

I highly recommend this surfing experience on Bondi. The instructors were great. High energy guys that were very supportive of all surfers at all levels. I'd never surfed before, but by the end, I was able to stand up from time to time, which is amazing considering the waves were pretty big on the day we went. Highly recommended.

We had a BLAST! We had never surfed before and we fell in love with it!! If we weren't leaving Sydney the next day we would have signed up for additional classes! Highly recommend the surfing company! The guys were GREAT!

We did this as a family and had a great time! I wish I could remember our instructor's name, because he was really awesome!

Friendly and knowledgable staff. Had a great time!!

Absolutely amazing. Caught my first wave. And a further two. Everyone is really friendly and the instructors are really nice. Lesson was cut short due to a shark, but they managed the situation well and ensured we left happy.

I was an extreme beginner for my very first surf lesson, but I had a blast. The beach was full of people and some waves looked really big, but our instructor, Adam, was very good at keeping us feel safe. He explained to us why he was taking us to certain parts of the beach and how the rip currents were in Bondi beach. He did walk us through the techniques on the beach a little bit, but he definitely was light on the lecture. I preferred this because until you have tried it, whatever he says doesn’t really make much sense. So he took us into the water and then gave us tips on our techniques again which I thought was great. Overall, I had a great time and I will definitely take another lesson with Adam.

Had a blast! The surf shop was easy to find, my husband and I opted for the private lesson for the two of us, well worth the hour just the two of us with the instructor and with no prior experience we both were able to stand on the boards by the end of the lesson. Staff were very friendly. Dont forget to check out the bucket list restaurant for some good beach side food!

Fabulous! The instructor was outstanding. We had a ball and would do this again in a heartbeat. I recommend this for beginners or surfers with some experience.
