School Groups – Currumbin Beach, Gold Coast
Safe Surf Program
The beach is a big part of life in Australia and it is imperative that our children can identify and deal with the unpredictable conditions of the ocean. Learning to surf is a fantastic confidence builder and brings with it a great sense of achievement, responsibility and self-confidence.
We can offer your students our Safe Surfing Program from Mermaid Beach to Coolangatta. Predominantly based at Currumbin Alley. We can offer grants in conjunction with Sporting Schools for Base, plus full 100% Gap funding through Surfing Australia so there will be minimal cost or no cost at all. We also accept Q Grant vouchers.
We require a minimum of a 2 person bookings at $65 p/p.
We also can offer further discounts if you book more than 21 people or you are wanting to book in for multiple sessions e.g. 3x90 minute sessions (minimum group size 21).
