Kids surfing lessons & birthday parties
The 1st Wave Surf School at Main Beach prefers to offer kids surfing lessons in small personalised groups. A group of 3 to 6 kids who are all friends is the perfect group size. A small group allows the instructor to offer each kid some personal attention plus they get to have fun with their friends.
The preferred location for the kids surfing lessons is at the Southport Surf Lifesaving Club, Main Beach. Main Beach is only 5 minutes drive north of Surfers Paradise or 1 hour south from Brisbane, it is the closest surf school to Brisbane and the northern Gold Coast suburbs.

Kids surfing lessons are much more fun for kids when they are with other kids the same age. By having personalised kids surfing lessons the kids will listen to instructors, focus on their tasks, be more confident to participate and generally have a better time in the surf. Some surf schools will combine kids with adults in large groups. Although these are good fun, to make kids first surfing experience a special one, you can’t beat having a personalised surfing lesson with a local experienced surfing instructor.
