Ocean Grove Learn to Surf
Ocean Grove learn to surf is one of the most popular beach destinations for all on the Bellarine Peninsula, due to its beautiful long beaches and plenty of car parking. This is a great location for learn to surf for beginners and also for those who have more experience. Conditions are ideal for surfing lessons or surf hire with beautiful clean water, a safe beach with gentle rolling waves, and a headland to provide shelter from the strong South Westerly winds. Ocean Grove beach is one of the best beaches for learn to surf in Australia.
Our surf school specializes in daily, beginner surfing lessons. Group and private surfing lessons are also available on request. Surfing lessons are run in waist deep water, and as a result we are able to keep it safe for beginners. Ocean Grove learn to surf is run by Go Ride A Wave, Australia’s favourite surf school which began in 1987.
We have a mobile operation and we operate every day over our peak period. Our trailer is next to the boat ramp that leads to the beach, on the beach side of the new toilet facilities. We meet for lessons at least 10 minutes before the start time. This will allow time to complete some paperwork and select the correct size wetsuit and pick out the right size surf board.
