Experience Surfing & Stand Up Paddleboarding in the Bundaberg Region

Enjoy Our SUPing & Surf Lesson Destinations - Bargara, Mon Repos, Kellys Beach, & Elliott Heads

Our SUP and Surf school locations are some of the most beautiful beaches in Queensland. Our area is located perfectly in Queensland, Australia. All locations are only a short 20 minute drive from the centre of Bundaberg, or even closer from Bargara. Our area is located only five hours north of the Gold Coast, and even closer to Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Agnes Water 1770 and Rockhampton. We are located in a prime location on the east coast – north enough to be warm all year round, but south enough to avoid hazards such as stingers and crocodiles. So we hope to see you come and learn to surf or experience Stand Up Paddle Boarding in one of our beautiful locations soon!
