What makes Kingo's Surf School one of the best Surf Schools in Australia?

  • Location - Kingo has a license to teach surfing at some of the safest, most protected, consistent, and uncrowded beaches in Australia.
  • Equipment - Kingo uses the safe soft boards most schools provide, but finds learners graduate from these boards in the early stages of their development. With uncrowded beaches and small numbers Kingo introduces "real" fibreglass surfboards when the student is ready, allowing them to progress their surfing at an even faster rate.
  • Experienced Instructors - Kingo spent 4 years at Uni studying PE teaching. After 25 years of school teaching and surf coaching, and over 35 years of surfing all over the globe Kingo has developed his own unique style of Surf Instruction which is adaptable to any type of learner. His experience, passion and knowledge is what really sets Kingo's Surf School apart from the others.
  • Surf Camps & accommodation - Possibly the best way to learn or improve your surfing is to live at the beach and go surfing everyday. Kingo offers a range of surf camps as well as cheap accommodation at the beach to help you make the most of your time surfing.
