That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Fulfil that lifelong dream of learning to surf and tick it off the bucket list once and for all. Certified instructors will teach you how to understand the water conditions and show you all the techniques and movements to make you a pro in no time.
All classes begin with stretching and warm up followed by a land lesson on technique and so you can observe the demonstrations on land prior to getting in the water.
Practice the movements and techniques demonstrated by the instructor to understand how the positions and movements should feel. This simulation will prepare you for getting in the water and controlling the board in the waves, paddling out, getting through the surf and standing up.
Before entering the water the instructor will describe the wave conditions for that day and point out rip currents and sand bars so you’re familiar with what is happening in the water at the location they will be completing the lesson.
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.
This voucher is for one person to participate in a group lesson.
