2. What should I bring?
All surfing equipment is provided in our Surf Lessons – soft boards, wetsuits (if required) and rash-vest. All you’ll need to bring are your swimmers or boardies, a towel, and water. Sunscreen is available, but we recommend you "Slip, Slop, Slap" before leaving for the beach.
3. What equipment is included?
We provide surfboards and wetsuits (if required) for all lessons.
Port Macquarie Surf School use the soft, fun, safe surfboards named G-Boards. Made by G-Boards Australia since 1999, the boards are constructed from closed cell foam; in other words, the foam is made up of thousands of small-encapsulated bubbles trapped inside the foam core. Therefore, if the board is punctured, the foam won’t allow any water to be absorbed, with a high-density slick bottom, non-rash decking material and soft fins. Softboards provide a completely safe surfing experience compared to hard fibreglass surfboards.
Surfing NSW endorses G-Boards Australia for safety, durability and performance and endorses G-Boards Australia as the leader of Softboards designs worldwide.
We also provide Ripcurl wetsuits to keep you warm and comfortable all year round. Ripcurl is one of the leading wetsuit industry designers and their products are manufactured to feel soft, flexible and easy to wear, even if it’s your first time wearing one.
