Who wants to “Get their Surf on”?

Our beginner lesson for
people who just want to jump on a board and experience the thrill of surfing.
This is a great lesson for first timers or some one who has maybe done one or 2
lessons and just need a bit more help with the basics. If you want to “Get
your surf on” you will arrive at the beach in your boardies frothing to
get in the water after a quick safety brief. You won’t be ready to join the pro’s
at Straddie but we do guarantee we will do everything we can to get you
standing up and catching a wave in the white wash in the first 2 hour session

What to expect

Get there: Arrive at our trailer at the Spit just 5 min
before the lesson, if we are picking you up you need to be at the pick-up
location at the time you have been informed, we do everything we can to get to
the beach on time.

Get Ready: We really need you to be in your swim wear when
you arrive so we can get the class started on time, we will check you in, make
sure everyone has arrived, grab a rashie/ wet suit and board and head down to
the beach.

Get Started: This is where you have to listen, the
instructors will run through a really important safety brief about the
conditions you are surfing in on that day followed by some really easy
techniques to help you get up on the board as easily as possible and maximise
your vertical time on the board and of course how to fall off safely. Once the
instructors are confident that you are all good to go, its then time to ….

Get Wet : This is what you came for. The instructors will
take the group down to the water together, before your big toe goes in they
will run through the formation they need you to stay in so everyone gets a
great crack at it and the instructors can give you tips. If you are doing what
these expert instructors are telling you should be pretty much standing on your
first or second wave.

Get Vertical: At first the instructors will help by pulling
you onto the best waves, but it won’t be long before you can pick your own and
go for it. Some people learn faster than others for one reason or another, but
the instructors are there to help everyone achieve the best they can.

Get Sharing: after a good hour and 20 min (if you can last
that long) in the water you should be tired, satisfied and have a big smile on
your face, met some new friends and want to tell the world. It’s now time for
the Instagram group pic so you can share with your friends. if the conditions
are good and everyone has been catching lots of waves the instructors will do
their best to grab some photos of you ripping, after the group photo we will
all head back to the carpark and they will show you their happy snaps on the
lappy, if you like what you see and want to grab them for your next face book
profile pic you can grab a USB with all of your shots for just $25 ( if you pre
pay its just $20).

*** the instructors will do everything they can to get some good shots of
you but sometimes its just not possible- they will not compromise your safety
for a photo. If you have pre paid and we don’t manage to get photos you will be
offered a refund on the photo price.

Get Dry: you will be a little salty and sandy so if you
want to have a quick rinse off now is the time to nip off quickly to one of the
outdoor fresh water showers and bathrooms and freshen up and get dry. Time to
say good bye to your new mates and if you LOVED it, chat to the instructors
about coming back for some more.
