What you'll do

You can ggl 'By Earth & Ocean' to find all my direct contact details and ask any questions but here is the general info;

In my surf lessons you will have a lot of fun, learn how to catch waves, understand correct technique, surfing etiquette and how to read the ocean conditions

It's an ideal surf lesson for both beginners and those entering the intermediate stage of their surfing career.

We start with our boards on the beach and do a full warm up, practising our board handling and surfing techniques. We jump into the flat water to practise these skills before returning to shore to discuss ocean currents/rips, safety and surf etiquette.

Once you have all these skills, we put them to good use and enter the surf for some fun waves. Noosa World Surf Reserve is an incredible place to learn and we'll find you the best banks with the best waves for your ability. I'll be out there with you, giving you feedback after every wave, making sure you're safe and helping get you onto the waves (if needed).

We'll take a break and have a breather halfway through, quickly practise a few land-based exercises to keep improving your technique and then get you back out into the surf for some final waves.
Other things to note
Bring along the usual beach attire: swimmers, sunscreen, water.
When making the booking pls also notify me of each persons age and surfing experience.

Where you'll be

Globally there are only 14 World Surf Reserves and I am so lucky to get to teach in 1 of them. We catch waves at Noosa West and Sunshine Beach. This gives me the unique ability to get you the best waves during our surf lesson.

It was a perfect experience. We don’t have any surfing experience before. We know a lot of things about surfing after this course. Coach Paul is so nice and patient. He gave us useful tips after the first round, that made us better to our second round.
