As well as teaching others, coaches from Rainbow Beach Learn to Surf have been working on their own surf skills and have found extra activities to improve their surfing.  We have been skating!

Can you imagine adults taking up skateboarding? Well it’s been fun and a laugh but also serious training. Coach Dean has started to master skills on the skateboard through researching and learning how to make it work in with surfing.

We are partnering up with a surf-skate trainer company to bring this component into our surfing groups – kids learn to surf, our lady sliders’ (ladies long boarding plus extras) surfing group, and other sessions where participants require help to master skills in the water.

Which leads us to our adventures for Term One.  We are setting up another round of Kids Learn to Surf for kids 8-12 years old.

We are teaching learn to surf skills, surf safety, beach safety, surf awareness, and progressing the kids along with their surfing according to their ability.  We will also be able to incorporate surf-skate training into the program for variety, and skills transferable to surfing.

So we are looking for more kids for our surf team!

Get in touch ASAP to sign them up for the term and get them into the water.  Programs will continue all year, but this is the term where the water is still warm and the days are long.

It’s a great time to get them started! Book now: 0435 934 087
