Do you want to experience one of the popular Australian sports? Do you want to have fun at one of the best beaches in Sydney? This time, Unimates is going to the Manly beach for a surfing experience! This will be a 2-hour session which will include everything you need (surfboards, wetsuits, rash vests, sunscreen and expert instructions in small groups of up to 6 people per fully-qualified coach)! There are also changing rooms and storage. At the completion of the lesson, you can also receive a certificate and a sticker from the Manly Surf School!!
Swimming ability: The beaches in general are very well patrolled so if you’re up for some fun swimming, that should be ok. Surfing participants however MUST be able to swim at least 50m. Australian beaches are unpredictable and much more challenging to swim in than swimming pools, so please sign up for surfing only if you are confident that you can swim at least 50m!
