South Australia has numerous options for where you can learn to surf and ultimately who to learn to surf with. How do you eliminate the small fry so you can be assured that your first surf lessons in South Australia are worthwhile?

Here are our tips about 5 Things To Consider When Choosing A Surf School Provider in South Australia:

Are they experienced?

It can be tempting to want to learn to surf as quickly as possible and make rush decisions about who may be the best to teach you the basics. But it’s crucial that you establish whether the company who is renting you the gear and taking you out on the water, is actually a legitimate business.

Surf & Sun is a multi award-winning licensed surf school operating surf lessons at a number of South Australian beaches including Middleton, Moana, and Robe so you can be assured that we operate to strict protocols and ethics.

Do they provide good quality, well maintained equipment?

While it’s perfectly fine to learn to surf on gear you bought at a second-hand sale, if you’re joining a surf lesson from a professional company you want to be secure in the knowledge that they have inspected and/or maintained the equipment.

Surf & Sun supply all equipment necessary for surf lessons including a huge variety of soft surfboards, rash tops, and full length wetsuits.

Do they provide flexibility with surf lessons?

Surf & Sun realize that not everyone wants to slot into a once-a-week surf lesson so we schedule surf lessons at different times of the day to allow maximum flexibility for surfers. Join a lesson with backpackers from your hostel, convince your family to have a private surf lesson on a weekend or book a session with a group of your friends.

Are the instructors qualified?

All of the instructors at Surf & Sun hold Level 1 surf coach certificates, current first aid and surf rescue techniques and Working with Children checks which is important for parents to know that their kids are in a safe environment.

Do they make the process fun?

Surfing is challenging and frustrating, but it should also be fun! There’s no point doing endless beach drills of pop-ups without putting in time on the water!

Many of the instructors are qualified school teachers so they understand the significance of making lessons interactive and fun and that is what makes Surf & Sun the best Surf School in South Australia.
