Surfing School - Lorne

Go Ride a Wave’s Lorne learn to surf on the Great Ocean Road is ideal for 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.

These public group lessons are also available on weekends up until Easter. Our main customers outside these times are school and corporate groups.

They usually stay in Lorne at a school camp, camping ground, Cumberland Resort or Mantra Lorne.

Lorne point, which goes right out to the pier where the famous Lorne Pier to Pub swim begins, shelters the beach.

It is a long, gently sloping, sandy beach with mostly small surf, which makes it easy for beginners and young children to learn.
