Request a lesson

Please complete the lesson request form to express interest in adult private lessons. An instructor will be in touch to discuss your requirements and plan a lesson schedule.

Due to high demand and a large backlog of lessons, we are not taking private lesson requests at this time. We suggest participating in one of our Saturday morning clinics instead. Thank you.

Hear Angelina tell her story

The first time I swam through the waves by myself was hilarious, because my friend Joe was there as well, and Joe and Andre were kind of talking, and I just realised that I’d swam through the waves and I was swimming, I was so excited that I’d done it. It was windy that day as well and it was overcast, and yet I did do it and suddenly I was out there and I wasn’t even scared! – Angelina Russo

Common questions

Lessons are available during the OceanFit season, which typically runs from October through to March each year.

Lesson availability comes down to instructor availability, as all our instructors hold other jobs as well (we’d love to be full time at the beach!).

When choosing multiple lesson packages, you can choose to have your lessons:
