Surfing is a unique sport offered to Year 12 students only. Information is given to students early in Term 1.

The course is conducted over 5 – 6 weeks and is designed to give students an understanding of beach conditions (waves, winds and rips) and an appreciation of the beach. The majority of students will be catching waves and standing on their boards by the end of the course.

The course is provided by Surfing Queensland. In the past, some of the surf coaches have been connected with the professional world men’s and women’s circuits either as coaches or competitors and all have been experienced.


The location for the course is the Gold Coast (usually Currumbin Alley) and it is conducted after school on a Thursday.
