Progress your surfing to the next level by joining our Advanced Beginner course!

Twice a week
New topic every lesson

Coming into its 6th year, our Advanced Beginner (AB) has been an extremely popular stepping stone for surfers looking to progress past beginner level. AB is designed for surfers that have surfed about 1-2 years and want to learn all the fundamentals of surfing or are stuck in the white whiter without the confidence to paddle out further.
10 lessons over 5 weeks, we focus on giving you the skills to identify the right type of waves for your level and how to put yourself in the right position using the rips and currents.

 Your will learn about surf etiquette, how to read surf reports correctly, how to use the rip to get out the back, how to position yourself and catch unbroken waves.
We will be using video analyses to help you improve surfing techniques such as your pop-up, turning and generating speed. Video analyses is the best way to help you progress quickly.
Our goal is to give you the skills and confidence to get your surfing to the next level in a fun and safe environment.
