What you'll do

This is not just a surfing lesson, but a tour of the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney , taking you to beauty spots & lookouts, tricky to access independently. First I will collect you from Manly Wharf. You can catch the ferry here from the city at Sydney’s Circular Quay - (give yourself 30-40 minutes for this). After we meet I will drive you to a lookout overlooking Sydney Harbour, there is a cafe here if you like coffee. Then a 45 minute drive along the stunning coast, where we will stop at a the surf break “kiddies corner” at Palm Beach (the Home & Away beach) for 1 hour of surf lessons. If waves are not your thing, we have options to boogie board, snorkel or swim in a stunning 50 metre Rockpool . If everyone is content I will take pictures of you surfing too (I have been a professional photographer for 20 years) Then we will drive nearby to our next beauty spot - a half hour walk up to the lighthouse , with a view looking back across Sydney. It’s a great place to spot whales in the right season too. We will relax at the top for brunch. Finally we will drive 10 minutes away, for a hot bbq lunch at another beautiful location on Pittwater before I drive you back to Manly where you can enjoy the vibe in one of the many cafes before catching the ferry back to the city.

Im a Sydney girl & I’ve travelled the world surfing, & as a photographer. I’m passionate about encouraging everyone to have fun in the ocean, & recently gave my 80 yr old English mother-in-law her first surf lesson. With 2 young daughters who surf, I am also calm & patient, I know the best spots to learn & how to read the ocean. I have been a surf life saver, & professional surf boat rower. As for hiking, I think being in nature, & good food is the key to a happy life. I can advise guests on taking pictures as i’m a professional photographer too!
