The World’s oldest Surf School
Back in 1986, two passionate Scarborough Beach surfers had a vision to make surfing more accessible for all people.
Ian and Doug recognised that although a lot of people wanted to learn how to surf, many were reluctant to start due to a lack of easily available equipment and a lack of people willing to teach them.
Scarborough Beach Surf School was established to fill this void.
In our early years, surfing lessons were provided to school children, locals and international travellers alike on Saturday mornings and school holidays.
These lessons were provided in a small group format, with a dedicated instructor who gave advice and tips to each student.
The structure of our surf lessons and programs was revolutionary, and became the blueprint for the School Licensing Program used by Surfing Australia.

36 years later, there are hundreds of surf schools in Australia and all over the world who use the same system of coaching that was initially developed by Scarborough Beach Surf School.
