About your host

I grew up on the Gold Coast, got my first foam surfboard when I was 5. I’ve been surfing, waterskiing, sailing or kiteboarding fairly regularly over the years. I understand the ocean conditions and surfing techniques you’ll need to learn to be safe and have fun. I’m also a school teacher, so you can expect clear and simple explanations.

What we’ll do

Depending what you already know and what gear you have already... I’ll explain the selection of an appropriate surfboard for your weight, level of experience, wave size.

What else you should know

Equipment
You will hire a board and wetsuit for each guest from Go Ride a Wave in Torquay. I don’t lend my personal boards to guests.

Where you'll be

The session will happen in the Torquay area near Torquay SLSC. I will drive you there from my place in Pascoe Vale South. I’ll chat to you in the car to establish what you know already, and then we will have a suitable theory lesson on the beach before we go for a paddle. With any luck you’ll stand up and surf! I’m happy to take photos for you if you like also.
