- 2-hour surf lesson
- Use of wetsuit, rash top, sunscreen, and surfboard
WHAT TO EXPECT
Learn to surf at one of South Australia's famous beaches – Moana. These two-hour group lessons will have you carving up the waves in no time.
Your lesson starts by changing into your gear, including a full-length wet-suit, rash-vest and sunscreen. Then you'll grab your board and head to the sand. Your surf instructor will get you warmed up, give you the low-down on surf safety, and familiarise you with your board, so you know which end points where! Next, it's onto the basics of board riding, including how to catch a wave, how to stand up, how to dismount, and how to fall off safely. You'll do all of this on the sand, so you can really nail your form before taking to the water.
Once you do hit the surf, you'll be tackling waves in waist-deep water. Don't be afraid to cheer and celebrate the first time you successfully stand up on your board - it's all about having fun while learning! You'll spend around an hour and a half in the water before rinsing off both your wetsuit and board. While you'll have all the excellent memories from the day, you'll also get to take home some incredible photos from your lesson!
You can choose to join a class for a once-off lesson and a taste of surf life, or you can take your surfing further with multiple lessons. All the instructors hold a level 1 surf coach certificate, surf rescue, working with children certificate, and first aid. Many of them are also competitive surfers themselves, so you can ask them anything surf related and they'll have the answer. Every class has a ratio of 1 instructor to a maximum of 8 students.
