How to Sign Up
Due to overwhelming interest, our free surf lessons are now fully booked!
Have you bought a surfboard from US?
We have reserved a few spots in our remaining free surf lessons for people who have bought surfboards from Underground and would like to attend. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share with you a link to register.
If you do not have your own surfboard you are welcome to hire one from us. Surfboard hire costs $10 per lesson per surfer and needs to be paid in cash on the day.
Want to hire one? Just let us know in the registration form when you sign up.
Important to Know
- Kids under 10 years old MUST have a parent/guardian with them in the water
- The lessons run regardless of the weather unless the beach is closed
- We can’t provide wetsuits, so if you would like to wear one be sure to bring your own. Our store will be closed so make plans early if needed

- We’ll email you the Thursday before a lesson to confirm and share any important updates
