What you'll do

Have you ever wanted to give Surfing a go but not sure about what to do, or where to go to make it a safe and enjoyable experience? Too Easy! Book your Private lesson today and let me show you the skills that will get you on your way! Surf lessons are conducted from 7:30am in the morning before the sea breeze comes in. Once we meet up on the lawned area, you will undergo a safety briefing on your time at the beach, the equipment used and issue your wetsuits. Once this is complete, we make our way to the beach to learn about the conditions of the day, identifying hazards, rips, currents, other water craft, swell size, conditions, wind direction, the surfers role in the environment and perform a brief warm up and stretch. Once we have a sound understanding of where we will be surfing we will then proceed onto the sand and go through the fundamentals and four steps of how to effectively control and stand-up on a surfboard . Then it's time to hit the water and chase some white wash into the shoreline to gauge your skill levels and assist in developing your technique to get you in control and standing up riding a wave! Depending on how you are progressing or your level of experience and confidence in the water, you may be invited to venture onto some green waves, however you will always be able to remain within your own comfort level and surfing ability.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 7 and up can attend. You do not need prior surfing experience, however you do need to be a fairly competent swimmer and be able to tread water for one minute.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Please bring a hat, Sunscreen, plenty of water and a towel. On really hot days the sand on the beach can be too hot to walk in bare feet so please bring some thongs/flip flops/jandals to make your way to & from the beach. Please remove all jewellery prior

More tips

Secret Harbour beach is only 35 minutes from the Perth CBD and is one of the safest beaches producing some of the most consistent waves in Perth. It's very simple and easy to get to via the Kwinana FWY or Warnbro Sound drive with lots of free parking at the beach.
