You are sitting out the back, waiting for your next wave. A set starts to roll in and you pick what wave you want… here it comes.. are you ready? Quick you need to turn your board around and get in the right position to catch it. But hmmmm how do I quickly turn my board around?
In our third edition of our tutorial series, Senior Instructor Jared takes us through the easiest way to turn your board around!

I surf because I feel great physically, emotionally and spiritually. I can’t quite relax until I’ve done some exercise and been in the water, so it’s lucky my favourite time of day is early morning.

Duck Diving… what is a duck dive?
A duck dive is a technique used by surfers to sink their boards underwater to duck under the breaking wave, allowing it to roll over them.
This is a skill that will take a little while to get a hold of, so in our 2nd edition of our Tutorial series, our Senior Instructor Justin teaches us how.

After being swept up in Brenda Miley’s dream 27 years ago we have been changing lives together one wave at a time since! The things I value most in life, are the amazing opportunities that I have been blessed with; My Family, Friends, Music, the Ocean and Laughing! The surfing I enjoy the most is medium sized waves, offshore and sunny!
Qualifications held include: Level 1 Surf Coach Certificate, Senior First Aid Certificate, Advanced Resuscitation Techniques; Apola (OSSCA)
Welcome to our Tutorial Series!
One of the best things about surfing is you can always improve! So we are going to help you on that journey with our series of helpful informative videos.
Our first is ‘The Eskimo Roll’
The Eskimo roll is flipping your board upside down with you on it, allowing the wave to roll over you. Sounds easy, but its a little bit trickier than you expect. Press play on the photo and our instructor Brad will show you how!
I surf because I can’t live without it. I can’t quite relax until I’ve had some waves, food and a siesta. After arriving in Sydney in June 2014 I quickly searched for a job where I could work with passion. I found it in LGS, emailed Marty and from there it all happened.
When I was younger, I dreamed about becoming an Orca trainer – these days I’m happy being free. Each lesson I look forward to converting students into lifelong surfers. My ideal conditions are 4-6ft, offshore breeze, sunset and a couple mates in the water.

The 8th March 2022 was International Women’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than get into the surf at Bondi Beach.
75 local women joined the crew from Lets Go Surfing led by surf school pioneer Brenda Miley to have some fun in the surf and raise money for women in need.
The theme this year was #breakthebias, Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
At 5:45am the morning started along with the rain, but that didn’t stop a great bunch of women coming together to celebrate.
The morning was filled with enjoying some time in the water, followed by light breakfast refreshments hosted by Brenda Miley.
This program was proudly supported by Surfing NSW, NSW Government, ROXY and SDS.
We also raised $2000 for a wonderful local not for profit organisation WEAVE’s Women and Children’s Centre whose aim is to support women and children to lead safe, healthy and successful lives free from domestic violence.
We had so much fun and cannot wait for next year’s event.
