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?

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.
Just press the play button on the video to see 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!

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’ve been on a surfboard since I could remember. Surfing is my happy place it’s my mental escape and my way of connecting with the elements. To be able to share my passion with others on a daily basis is indescribable.
I love that moment when one of my students achieves their goal, the look on their face as they throw their hands in air in celebration makes my job one of the best in the world.

For me, surfing is a release from reality yet it connects you with nature and rewards the effort you put in. I look forward to lessons because I like helping people achieve goals, and also having people paying to hear my opinion on things.
My favourite surf is a late one, an hour before dark, and my ideal conditions are 1 foot perfection with a gentle offshore or 4-6 foot cloud break.
