We are a small team of local surf instructors who are passionate about giving YOU the best surfing experience possible! Since 2006, we have been teaching surfing to people of all ages and abilities. Based in the heart of the Gold Coast, Broadbeach Surf School offers a fun, healthy and safe surfing experience!


Surfing Lessons

At Broadbeach Surf School we ensure you have a more personal approach to your surfing lesson and the session is focused completely on your skills and comfort level. We cater for beginners to advanced surfers, so if you’ve never been on a board before, want to improve your surfing skills or require some local knowledge to get the best out of your surfing at our local beach break we can help you.

We also love to share our intimate knowledge of the ocean, so you can gain valuable ocean safety and awareness.

Our pristine sand bottom beach offers a variety of wave types for surfers of all ages and abilities. Broadbeach is blessed with waves all year round, and we are far less crowded than most other beaches on the Gold Coast. The water temperature rarely dips below 20 degrees Celsius, and we regularly see dolphins, and whales during winter and spring. 

Since we are mobile, we like to park as close as possible to where conditions are best within our permit area in Broadbeach. Our permit extends from Australia Ave to Wharf Road. We are currently surfing in front of 1/5 Broadbeach Boulevard, Broadbeach. Our van is parked in the beachside free carpark opposite here.





So happy with our decision to take a private lesson with Broadbeach Surf School. Easy to book, everything went as planned, easy to locate, such a smooth process, would give 6 stars if I could…

Can’t wait to do another lesson. We went to a theme park yesterday and it was 1/5. The lesson at Broadbeach Surf School was 10/5 in comparison. 10 x better value. 10 x more rides. 10 x more fun. Don’t think twice about doing it - just book it. So friendly. So professional. Great photos. Lots of laughs. Highly highly recommend.
