Learning to surf in NSW beaches is easy with accredited surf schools up and down the coast. As there are more accessible surf beaches than anywhere else in Australia, it's the perfect place to learn to surf.
With more accessible surf beaches than anywhere else in Australia, the New South Wales coast is great for surfing.

It is home to nine national surfing reserves, and has many learn-to-surf schools, surf safaris and surfing events.
