The Bay Wave is the easiest way to learn to surf. We are so confident you will be stand up and surf that we offer the only surf school guarantee – stand and surf the first trip or the next surf trips free.
The Bay Wave is Victoria’s first and only man made wave learn to surf experience. It is created by the hull of our 11 meter timber vessel. The wave breaks right beside the boat and will take you on a ride that can last for minutes at a time covering kilometers.
The surf zone is right beside the boat up to 4 meters out behind our boom net, you are so close you will be able to chat with your loved ones while you catch the ride of your life. This allows the qualified instructors to teach you correct technique in real time while you surf.
The surf lesson begins just a short drive from the start of the Great Ocean Road at Queenscliff Harbour, where you will be greeted by our friendly and professional team. You will then be fitted out with a warm and buoyant wetsuit and provided with expert learn to surf instruction while we head out from the harbour.
Once on the water, we will find the perfect sheltered location for your surf lesson and provide a comprehensive live demonstration and instruction.
Entering the water is an easy step down off our boom net hammock and straight onto the board waiting below. You will then be handed a rope to hold onto and our vessel will gently begin to make way.
An Instructor will hold the board steady and in position on the wave while you take as much time as you need to get to your feet, once on your feet and comfortable the instructor will slowly let go of the board and you will gently glide into the wave and begin surfing freely.
Surfing this wave can last minutes at a time and it is very common for people to catch the longest ride of their life, and then step back onto the boat without even getting their hair wet!
If you do fall, nothing is to worry, an instructor will be straight into the water with you. They will escort you back to the surfboard where you can both sit on the board above the water while the vessel turns around to collect you just a few moments later.
We are so confident that you will get to your feet and stand that we offer a surf first trip guarantee – the only surf school to guarantee your surfing success. Surf the first trip guarantee or the next surf trips free!
