What you'll do

Surfing at Sydney's 2nd most famous beach 'Manly Beach' is a great way to spend your time whilst visiting this amazing city. It doesn't matter if you're an expert or just wanting to learn, we will have a great time surfing in my local area.
We will meet at the marked location in Manly Corso and depending on the swell and crowds we will walk to the best surf spot between Manly Beach and Queenscliff Beach. If you're a first time surfer ill give you a lesson focusing on the skills of surfing and how to handle yourself and your surfboard in the ocean. We will also have a warm up/ practice on the sand if necessary. I will be in the water surfing with you the entire time and offering assistance if required.
After our surf, we will have a cold shower and get changed. We will walk as a group to one of Manly's best Cafe's and enjoy a fresh coffee (Morning Group) OR we will walk to one of Manly's best boutique bars and get a beer or refreshment (Afternoon Group). (Drinks are at own expense). During this time we will have a debrief about our awesome surfing sesh!
I will also have a GoPro in the water with me during our surfing sesh and send you all the photos!

My name is Andrew and I've lived in the Northern Beaches, Sydney for most of my life.

I have a passion for travelling, going on new experiences and meeting new people. After travelling to 70+ countries, I was inspired to come home and start providing my own experiences so travellers can enjoy all of the local areas in Sydney.
I have taken full agvantage of all the natural beauty Sydney had to offer. I have surfed since I was 5 years old and know all the local breaks. I want people to come and enjoy the area as much as I do.
