Go Ride a Wave’s Lorne learn to surf on the Great Ocean Road is ideal for Private Surf Lessons!
It has a fantastic flat beach and gentle waves, with a safety rating from Surf Life Saving Victoria of 5/10. This makes it a very safe beach because higher values are more dangerous.
Our surf school specialises in daily beginner surf lessons. In addition, group and private lessons are available on request. We conduct all our surfing lessons in waist deep water, to keep it safe for beginners.
Lessons include a full length Quiksilver wetsuit and a soft beginner surfboard with 2 hours of quality instruction and fun. All that customers need to bring with them are bathers and a towel. We provide sunscreen and we lock personal items in our trailer while you are surfing.
Go With a Surf Guide
It is the same price as a private surf lesson but your surf buddie can take you to most locations dependant on your ability.
We will not take you to Bells Beach on the Surf Coast or Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast or First Point at Noosa on the Sunshine Coast unless you are a very experienced surfer (but why would you come to us if you are?)
We will usually try to pick an intermediate location which is suitable to your ability, to help progress your skills.
Our Surf Guides will happily take you to the right surf spot for you and give you a few helpful tips.
With either a Private Surf Lesson or a Go with a Surf Guide session we can use a soft G Board or if customers are at an intermediate level we can use a fibreglass board
