Perth Go Surf

Scarborough

Cost: 1.5-hour lessons $35, 4 lessons $110

To be honest, we have no idea how surfers do what they do, and we’re going to call it some kind of wave magic. Only explanation. But apparently this surf sorcery can be taught, and if you too want to own the water around Perth, we think we’ve found the answer. Perth Go Surf is a brilliant way to start learning, with seasoned instructors offering a range of laid-back, friendly lessons. Even if you’ve never touched a surfboard in your life, they’ll have you out there splashing about in no time.
