North Bondi is a great place to learn to surf, and this well-established surf school offers lessons catering to practically everyone. There are classes for 'grommets' (young surfers) aged seven to 16 (1½ hours, $49) and adults (two hours, $110, women-only classes available), or you can book a private tutor (1½ hours, $205/300 for one/two people). Prices drop outside summer.

The school also hires out boards, wetsuits and stand-up paddleboards.
