Our Tours

Surf Coaching

Brad chose to conduct surfing lessons at The Spit, because it is one the safest locations on the Gold Coast.

He conducts lessons from Beginners to Advanced.
Disabled people are most welcome.

It also has a consistent gentle beginner's wave on the shore break, making it, not only safe, but easy for students, to pick up multiple - fun waves, in the session!

You are taught " how the Sea works, and how to work with it."

Soft safety boards are used, and they only go out to your waist deep.
You don't have to be a good swimmer! Every aspect of safety, and understanding how to work with the Sea, and your soft safety board, is covered.

You will accomplish personal satisfaction, of learning new and interesting skills - and have great fun, with friends!
