Day 3

8.00am - 12.00pm
2 hour learn to surf lesson + 2 hours free board hire on Bondi Beach
This popular beginner session teaches you how to safely get out and up onto your first wave. Here you`ll be taught in a small group setting of 5 students or less, so you get plenty of hands-on help. It`s a great way to build your surf knowledge, confidence and cultivate your surfing technique. You`ll be amazed at how easy, safe and enjoyable it can be to learn to surf. Great for First-time surfers or those seeking to refresh or refine their basic technique.
After meeting up with your fellow surf trainees and your instructor, you head down to Bondi Beach. Because the groups are so small you will get plenty of hands-on help.
To build up your knowledge and confidence, Lets Go Surfing first start you out on the beach and teach you how to recognize surf conditions and practice your surfing technique before you get into the water. Then it`s off into the ocean, where you start off in broken waves - the white foam created after the waves run their course. You`ll be amazed at how easy, safe and enjoyable it can be to learn to surf.
Techniques covered:
- Surf awareness and safety
- Sport specific warm up and stretches
- Standing up
- Paddling techniques
- Catching Waves
- Equipment selection advice
By the end of the lesson you should be standing up and riding your board with aplomb!

In Manly you’ll pick up your hybrid bike with helmet, bicycle lock, bicycle handle bar bag and map. You can take the challenge and ride to the spectacular views from North Head or simply cruise along the beach promenade and take a swim.
