Get Wet Surf School - Tour

Regarded as the most professional and well respected learn to surf organization on the Gold Coast Get Wet is an award-winning family-owned and operated business offering local knowledge, impeccable safety and outstanding customer service to ensure that participants have the best experience.

Only an 8-minute drive from the heart of Surfers Paradise, The Spit Beach, the home of Get Wet Surf School since 2005, is the true locals surfing paradise. No crowds, no high-rises shadowing the beach, no traffic and loads of free parking.

The Sand pumping jetty and the Seaway wall offer protection from the strong currents and shore dumps that affect the open beaches, allowing perfect sandbanks to form which allow the lesson to be conducted in waist-deep water, safe even for those who are not strong swimmers.

Continually raising the bar for safety, Get Wet was the first surf school on the Gold Coast to insist all instructors conduct police checks before working with children, which has since become a national requirement and the first to maintain strict participant to instructor ratios well below the national standard (6:1 for adults and 4:1 for children).

Whether you are looking to take up the sport of surfing or just looking for a fun activity to share with your family or friends, their aim is to ensure the experience is fun and safe.
