Numerous Surf & Sun instructors are also qualified school teachers specialising in outdoor education so they understand the importance of making lessons fun, interactive and adaptable.

School Surf Lessons

We can offer one-off group surf lessons for 2 hours, or ‘Learn to Surf’ specialty school camps that are 3-5 days in duration depending on requirements and can be inclusive of activities, accommodation, catering, transport and more depending on each schools requirements.

We can run programs based on SACE and other criteria if requested and required by each school. For example, in Stage 2 Physical Education, we can integrate a Practical Assessment into a surf lesson to test for proficiency in the performance of physical activities, and interpretation and application of skills, specific concepts, ideas, strategies, and techniques, in a practical context.
