I reckon this is the best surf school. All the instructors were so helpful and patient. Lovely location. Well patrolled by life guard's but take plenty of sun cream.

I booked online for a group lesson. Booking was straightforward. There were maybe 20-25 people in our group, which meant the water was quite busy. Regardless, there were a number of instructors, who were very supportive. Great intro to surfing.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
