How do instant gifts work?
Learn to surf at Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, one of Australia's most iconic surf destinations. With its warm waters and safe beaches, the conditions at Noosa are ideal for beginners. You'll learn to surf in waist deep water with fully qualified surf instructors who are also surf life savers. Soft beginner surf board and rash vests or wetsuit are included.

We meet at our trailer in the car park at Beach Access No 11 in Claude Batten Drive at Noosa Heads 15 minutes before the lesson begins. We provide a long sleeved rash/sun shirt (or wetsuit in winter) and select the correct size soft beginner surf board and then walk to the beach. We begin with a safety talk and some basic instruction on the beach and then catch our first few waves in waist deep water. We then return to the beach for more detailed instruction about how to stand up. We then spend the rest of the lesson in the water with the instructor assisting everyone to stand up.

My sister and I had our first surf lesson with Emily. We both had an awesome time, I was a bit worried and nervous that I wouldn't be able to stand up but we were riding waves right in the whole time, she had us standing up from the first wave. Highly recommend.

Great team and very calm working with little kids. My daughter was 5 yrs old and comfortable already in the surf. The team taught her how to pop up and get to her feet. Thanks to Scott, Emily and Mason

My friend and I went for a surf lesson with Scott on a Monday and it was so quiet with only two of us in the lesson. Luckily the waves were just perfect for us beginners and Scott made sure that we caught as many waves as possible. My favourite part was standing up first go, such an amazing experience.

Emily (instructor) was amazing. Knowledgeable, encouraging and patient. Boards and wetsuits were great quality. Great location to learn as well.

Loved it! Good fun and Emily has been a terrific instructor! Would definitely go back if I was in the area again!

Really friendly guys and great location to learn. Went with wife and two teenage children. I'm 55 and fit, but a bit overweight. On the second day, when we only hired boards, rather than took a lesson, I got up about 5 times, some runs as long as 10 or 15 seconds.

Always awesome. We’ve been so many times and my kids love it every time. Instructors were amazing and fun

What an awesome morning for some waves. Jules the instructor was very patient, experienced and kind in her approach. My daughter Montana has enjoyed the morning and looking forward to the next lesson in surfing.

My two children (10 and 14) had a 2 hour beginners lesson at Noosa main beach an both stood up within minutes of starting the lesson. The instructor was fantastic and really helped the kids and made it fun. They were both beaming for hours afterwards.

3 teens had a brilliant morning. Extra time was spent with my daughter who struggled to get up on the board. Diligent and supportive instructors. Everyone tired and happy and I had 2 hours of me time - winning!

We had a group of six kids (and a mum) who took part in the lesson. Scott was an awesome teacher - very patient with everyone and all had an excellent time - and we all managed to stand up and surf into the beach! Great day, great value and awesome fun!

I took a 'group' lesson which turned out to be just myself and Tim, the instructor. I am amazed that Tim got me up and surfing within a very short space of time. Pays to get the right advice!

Our two young girls 11 and 7yo, totally newbies to waves. The instructor was Tim, he did a great job by keeping it friendly, simple yet educative. They were able to stand up on the board riding their first waves within the first 30minutes In all safety. A bit reluctant initially they now can't wait for next Saturday to come and have a second go...they made every proud parents of us. Thanks GoRideaWave! Andrea & Claudia

Highly recommend this surf school! I had an awesome time, the instructor was great at explaining the basics and I was able to stand up on a board in no time. Now I’m off to buy a board to surf myself! Thanks Scott
