Learn to surf at Smiths Beach, Phillip Island, in some of the most beginner friendly waves in Victoria with one of the most established Surf Schools in the country. Lessons from first time beginner to experienced surfers are catered for, with group, private, school and corporate rates available, Island Surfboard’s Surf School is home to the ultimate learning environment. Surfing is our passion so book in and enjoy the ride!
Lessons take place at Smiths Beach, well known as one of the best beginner locations in the state. We organise your gear at our store (100m from the beach) where we have over 70 “as new” softboards between 6′ and 11′ and over 300 full wetsuits (32 & 43 Steamers) between little kids (size 4) and big kids (upto 125kgs). We then take you down to the waves to begin the lesson. A very popular beach in summer (patrolled from Boxing Day until Australia Day), the gentle drop-off in depth makes for gentler waves than surrounding beaches. Smiths is a safe, sand bottom beach which is also afforded great protection from the winds and the larger swells, and even if conditions are rough, our experienced coaches will put you in the best and safest position to learn to surf.
