Wye River Learn to Surf
Wye River learn to surf is a beautiful beach along the “must drive” Great Ocean Road. It is a perfect location for teaching surfing with gentle easy waves. There is also a great cafe and pub, and plenty of accommodation just opposite the beach. Wye River is a small popular coastal town where the bush meets the sea, about 20 minutes drive past Lorne, on the Great Ocean Road. The Wye River Big 4 Caravan and camping ground is a great place to stay. They have cabins, caravan sites with power and camping areas with plenty of space.
Wye River Bush Fire Dec2015
Wye River was part of a large Bush Fire at christmas 2015 when some of the houses were lost to the fire. It is growing strongly again and especially relevant is that the Big 4 Park did not sustain any damage in the fire. The Wye River Hotel was one place all the locals and fire fighters saw as a must save area in the fires. As a result it still has an amazing view over the beach.
Wye River learn to surf on the Great Ocean Road is a fantastic place for surf lessons. Conditions are ideal for surf lessons or surf hire with beautiful clean water, a safe beach and probably one of Australia’s best learn to surf destinations. Our surf school specialises in daily beginner surf lessons over the summer school holidays. Group and private lessons are available on request. Our surfing lessons are all run in waist deep water because we want to keep it safe for beginners.
Wye River learn to surf is run by Go Ride A Wave, Australia’s favourite surf school. We operate from our trailer from the Wye River Big4, which is only a short walk to the beach. We have daily 2 hour lessons at 12pm and can arrange special classes on request.
How to get there
For all our lessons we meet just inside the grounds of the Big 4 Caravan Park, next door to the cafe. You can also make bookings for lessons through the reception at Big 4 or arrange a hire board for those who have done a few lessons or already have some experience. You will see our trailer on the grass opposite the Big 4 Caravan Park reception.
