Kirra Point Surf Lessons near Coolangatta

Kirra Beach, near the Kirra Surf Club , is the location for our surf lessons, just around the point from Coolangatta. We are also very close to the Coolangatta Airport and not far from Kirra Surf shop.

Kirra Beach is one of the safest beaches on the Gold Coast because it is a sheltered beach. Many of the other beaches on the Gold Coast are open to the main swell and wind.

They can get large waves with strong currents and can consequently be quite dangerous. The predominant strong wind and swell on the Gold Coast comes from the South East.

The point at Snapper Rocks shelters Kirra Beach from these dangers and as a result it is usually very safe.

We park our van in the car park just South of the Kirra Beach Pavillion. It also houses the Kirra Surf Club (which has a restaurant upstairs) and the Kirra Boardriders Club and Pizza Hut.

Car parking can be busy, so we recommend that you walk from your accommodation and avoid car park rage.

It is only a short walk from all the main Kirra accommodation places. It is also only a short walk around the point from the Coolangatta hotels and resorts.

The Kirra Boardriders club has many famous competition surfers as members and is one of the strongest surfing clubs in Australia.

We carry out our lessons close to the shore, in waist deep water, to keep it safe, while the competition and experienced surfers go out deeper and catch the waves coming off the point.
