  • Bondi Beach: Private Surf Lesson

    4. Bondi Beach: Private Surf Lesson

    Hone your surfing skills with extra attention from a dedicated personal surf coach. Whether you’re an individual determined to get up on that wave, a group of friends wanting your own personal surfing experience, or a more experienced surfer needing feedback on technique, these private surf lessons give you that extra attention to detail and a dedicated coach to work with. Your own personal surf instructor will set some goals, determine your current level, and structure the lesson around your ability. If you are an absolute beginner you’ll get you up on the waves before you’ve had time to worry about falling off. If you’ve been surfing before, your instructor will help you move onto the next steps a lot faster by focusing on technique, board control, and bringing out your natural ability.

    I had a short time in Sydney, so I booked a 1 hour private lesson to maximize my time surfing. I got an excellent instructor, that helped improve my technique. I was definitely not paddling correctly and she fixed that and other technique problems.

Great view and sensations in the helicopter! Sydney Harbour and seaside are definitely worth being seen from the sky. The pilots' comments were useful and made it an even more pleasant ride. The gentleman who drove the shuttle from the CBD to the airport was also very friendly.

Fantastic experience. Lovely staff . Got to steer the ship and learnt heaps about sydney. Recommended. Will definitely do it again.

Great views of the city, harbour bridge and opera house. Nice cruise along the coast line back to the airport as well.

Going on an official Home and Away two hours on my bucket list for quite a few years
