Surf Lessons

We arrange surf lessons for all levels.


Have a board under your feet and a smile on your dial every lesson. Your pro surf instructor will work with you daily, taking great pride in making sure you feel safe in the water.


Because of tides and wind, you’ll likely surf at different times each day. Check out the lesson board in reception the day before and join your housemates at the meeting spot.


The Beach House surfboards are yours for the taking if you feel like some extra time in the green room. You can feel safe and confident knowing you’re learning with the #1 surf school in NSW.  If you’ve always wanted to learn to surf or have your sights set on taking your skills to the next level, this is the best way to get it done!


Surf Spots

The first beach north of Sydney Harbour is Manly, which is split into 4 different areas.


  • Manly is the southern corner, well protected from the bigger southerly swells
  • South Steyne produces classic lefts on a NE swell, down near the old stormwater pipe and has been known to hold up in double-overhead plus conditions.
  • There are more peaks along the central Mid Steyne stretch, whilst North Steyne is a good beach break even on the usual S wind, S swell combination.
  • The whole stretch is always a little smaller than exposed beaches like Curl Curl, but it seems to maintain better sandbanks and will have cleaner conditions during southerly busters.
  • The flip side is mushy onshore conditions when summer NE’ers blow in.
