Kids surfing lessons and surfing birthday parties are provided by the 1st Wave Surf School at Main Beach. Kids surfing lessons are offered during the school holidays and are a great activity to get kids active in a healthy and fun environment.
Kids surfing lessons generally run for 1.5 hour with all equipment provided. Special programs are available at different times of the year, including surfing and stand up paddle board days, surf and tutoring sessions, dad and daughter surfing lessons, girls only surfing lessons, boys only surfing lessons, father and son days, little kids get wet, weekly programs, daily programs and private kids surfing lessons.
Kids Surfing Birthday Parties are also very popular and everyone is guaranteed to have a great time. A surfing birthday party is structured on an introduction surf lesson with the focus on a fun beach party with games and prizes for the kids. Surfing experience is not required and the surfing is done in close to the beach where the kids can stand in the water the whole time. They will not be taken out far where the waves are bigger and the water is deeper. Surfing birthday parties are provided for kids 7 years and above. Small or large groups can be catered for and the preferred location at Main Beach offers beach cafe which is happy to assist with lunch and cake after the surfing or there is adjacent parklands with free bbq’s, picnic tables and kids playground which is the perfect option for a sausage sizzle on the park.
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. The Southport Surf Club location offers all day free parking, beach cafe and licensed surf club, lifeguard patrolled beach, public toilets and changing rooms and beachfront shaded parklands with bbq’s and kids playgrounds.
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.
Kids stand up paddle lessons and birthday parties are also available.
