JD Stewart and Sarah Booth are proud to introduce their new business Rainbow Beach Learn to Surf
Weather permitting, at 9.30am every day new local, JD Stewart, brings accredited surf school, Rainbow Beach Learn to Surf “down the front”.
“We’re in the business together,” explained Sarah Booth, also our local pilates and personal trainer, she works on admin and marketing for the new venture.
“When JD came down from Agnes Waters – he noticed there wasn’t a surf coach near the flags.
“We felt there was a real gap in the market for something more accessible – not just for tourists, also for locals,” said Sarah, “and are very impressed how well accepted it is from the local community and businesses.”
Both Sarah and JD live to surf: “JD has worked six years full time as a surf coach – and has well over 30 years’ surfing experience all over the world, and is great with kids. He loves to help people get out there, feel the board and the waves and have fun doing it.”
They said to gain accreditation with the Academy of Surfing Instructors (ASI) was a long process, but it assures students of their commitment to safe surfing and best practice for lessons.
Said Sarah, “We will only hire accredited surf coaches with coaching cards, bronze medallions or surf rescue certificates, blue cards and senior first aid qualifications.”
Group sizes are small – they limit ten per class, also offer private classes, seven day surfboard and boogie board hire – and ladies – keep a look out for the three-week women’s group!
