Broadbeach Surf School
Surf, sun and sand are what Queensland is renowned for and what better way to experience the Sunshine State by learning to surf at one of the top surfing schools located on the Gold Coast. With some of the best surfing beaches in the world, it's no wonder the Gold Coast is host to major surfing events like the Quicksilver and Roxy Pro.

[ADVERT]Surfing can be undertaken as a fun leisure activity or competitive sport, plus it's a great way to improve your balance and physical fitness. If you've never held a surf board let alone ridden a wave, it's never too late to learn. Though you may never reach the standard of top surfing pros like Kelly Slater you can still experience all that surfing has to offer and develop a new talent to enjoy and show off to your friends and family.

Almost every surfing school rates itselves as number one, however, a top surfing school will always:
1. Employ professional, qualified instructors;
2. Offer competitive rates and group discounts; and
3. Deliver a range of surfing lessons and programs to suit all ages and abilities.

Fortunately, that's just what the following Gold Coast Surfing schools do.

The Broadbeach Surf School opens 7 days a week and offers surfing lessons and programs for all age groups and skill levels. Private or group lessons are available and you'll pay less if you book multiple classes or sign up with a group of six or more.

Thanks Carsie,
My daughter wants to learn to surf, and you've just taken all the hard work out of the research. Very informative. Should now be a piece of cake to find a suitable surf school.
