Winter WAVES 6-week program

Want to grow your confidence in the ocean and have wild fun while doing it? This program has been designed to progress your surfing skills, ocean awareness, fitness, and confidence in the water, with instructors who will give you detailed attention and make sure you're having an epic time (because we all know the best surfer out there is the one having the most fun)!

$455 AUD 




  • 6 x 2-hour surf lessons with a qualified & experienced surf instructor, running across six consecutive weeks. These lessons will be progressive, and dive into practical surfing skills, ocean awareness, mindset tools, and so much more.

  • We'll provide you with a wetsuit, surfboard, and sunscreen for all lessons (you are welcome to use your own if you would prefer to).


We have three different levels running for this current round of Winter Waves.

  • Level 1A: Complete beginners or those who are working at standing in the whitewash.
    Weds at 10am, starting June 1st, 2022.
    Sats at 10am, starting June 4th, 2022.


  • Level 1B: Those who have surfed a bit before and are confident in the whitewash, but want to learn how to surf unbroken waves, and grow their confidence to paddle out the back.
    Sundays at 10am, starting June 5th, 2022.

  • Level 2: Those who are confident paddling out and taking off on 2-3 foot waves, and wanting to work on technique, turns, and speed.
    Sundays at 8am, starting June 5th, 2022.
    Please note, we are looking at running an additional Level 2 group running Mon or Tue during school hours. If you are interested in this, please contact us.

We want to make sure you get the most from your sessions, so we choose the beach with the best conditions on the day. You'll receive a message 24-48 hours before each session with instructions on where to meet us. We have permits to operate at several beaches along the Great Ocean Road, so lessons may be held anywhere between Point Addis and Fairhaven. If needed, we can help you organise carpools to get you to and from any location we head to.


frequently asked questions

How are you going to help coach me on my specific goals in a group setting?
On booking, you'll receive a short questionnaire to fill out telling us where you're currently at ability-wise, what you want to work on, and what (if anything) may be holding you back. While we do try and group our lessons with similar abilities, if you have a specific goal in mind, we'll likely bring in an extra instructor and split the surf lesson up further so that you can have coaching on that specific goal.

Do I need to be a good swimmer?
Our complete beginners will be starting out where they can stand, in waist to chest depth water, and we'll never force you to go deeper than where you're comfortable. If you want to paddle out the back, you should be able to comfortably tread water and swim 100-200m unaided, just in case your leg rope snaps and you lose your board.

What happens if I can't make one of the weeks?
We know committing to a 6-week program can be a lot. We'll be running a few make-up classes at the end of the program for anyone who's missed a session. If for whatever reason you can't make any of those, we can let you know when we have a surf camp running that's not at capacity and pop you into one of those lessons. Basically, we'll try and be as flexible as possible to make sure you get everything you can from the program.
