Frequently Asked Questions

Where do we meet?

We are mainly located at Redgate Beach so you are required to meet in the Redgate Beach carpark 10 minutes prior to your lesson commencing. Directions can be found on our Contact page. We will contact you with directions if the beach location changes.

What if I am late or unable to attend?

We are required to have 24 hours notice for any cancellations or no refund will be given. Please make sure you meet your coach 10 minutes prior to your lesson as latecomers will forfeit their lesson and no refund will be given.

Do I need to be able to swim?

Most of our lessons are held in waist-deep water but we will ask if you are able to swim 50 meters (the length of an Olympic swimming pool) so we are aware of your swimming ability. Please speak with your coach on the day if you have any questions or concerns about your swimming ability.

We book Margaret River Surf School every year. My son and me really made progress through the enthusiasm of all coaches. They helped us all the way, and we stood up surfing!!! They flexibly adapt to the different levels of the people, and that really helps…thanks for making us surf…we will be back!

Everything was just great. It was my first surf lesson, I could progress, learn a lot and also had fun. Matt is an excellent coach. He cares and loves to teach and wants you to learn as much as you do. I will continue surfing and i will never forget my first coach Matt who got me hooked to surfing….

Kite_Tubi

My 11 year old boy and I had a fantastic time for our very first time at surfing. Our coach Matt was awesome : he was fun, very efficient (we managed to stand a few times) without minimizing our safety. Location (Redgate beach) ideal too. We hope we can it make it back to Margaret River to have another lesson!
