Schools & Corporate Surfing
We offer your school or corporate team a safe, fun surfing program in the Margaret River area.
The beach is a big part of life in Australia and it is imperative that we can identify and deal with the unpredictable conditions of the ocean that surrounds our beautiful country. Learning to surf is a fantastic confidence builder and brings with it a great sense of achievement, responsibility and life long skills in and out of the water.
Surf lessons include a wetsuit and board for each participant for the duration of the lesson. We have a minimum of a 1:8 participant to coach ratio. Participants learn about the waves, rips and hazards, surfing etiquette, as well as techniques on how to carry their board, attach their leg rope, paddle for a wave and stand up safely. We also hold team-building activities on the beach and in the water. Our qualified, fun and friendly coaches assist with wave selection and help participants to balance on their board as they get a feel for paddling and standing up on the waves. If participants are more advanced, surf coaches can improve techniques and offer professional advice to take their surfing to the next level.
Beginner lessons: We teach the fundamentals of surfing and beach safety while having loads of fun in the process. Even if participants have surfed before we can work with them to improve their skills at a beginner level.
Intermediate – Advanced Lesson: We can cater for schools and corporate teams who are already confident surfers, with their own equipment, looking to take their surfing to the next level. We can teach participants how to improve their skills and add new maneuvers to their repertoire.
Weet-Bix SurfGroms Program: Our SurfGroms program is designed for primary school aged children (5-12 years). Schools can apply to have the program fully funded through Sporting Schools. Students also receive a pack full of beach gear.
Team Building: Our lessons can also include important team building exercises that bring your groups bond closer together and energise them to take on whatever challenge comes their way! Participants work together to achieve vital surf rescues and beach relays. We can include activities both in and out of the water so please feel free to discuss your options with us.
We offer discounts if you book more than 8 people or if you are booking multiple sessions.
Between 7:00am – 6:00pm

“Our school has used the Margaret River Surf School for a number of our camps down south this year. They are always professional and the enthusiasm their coaches show for surfing and getting kids to stand up on a wave is infectious. Staff and students had a ball. Thanks Jarrad and co.”

“I’m an Outdoor Ed teacher who took a group of 17 Year 11 students with different surfing abilities down to Margaret River for two morning lessons. The more intermediate surfers got the opportunity to have their first crack at a reef break which was awesome. The beginners in the group had the opportunity to go out the back of the break at Redgate, and surf down the face of a wave under completely safe conditions. The staff were highly skilled and very encouraging – they got alongside every single one of the students…Highly recommended. I’m booking for next year!”
– Mandurah Baptist College
