I Surfing

Insightful, honest coaching, the best equipment at your fingertips and regular social events featuring inspiring surfing individuals - that is what makes the Lamiroy Surf Academy so unique.

We offer Surf Coaching Sessions suited to all abilities.

'Progression' Coaching Sessions - For our members who surf regularly, from progressing beginners through to the intermediate and on to the very competent and elite, this session combines access to all the equipment in our Surf Shed [boards, wetsuits, leashes and fins] with insights and advice drawn from our coaching staff who have a lifetime of surfing experience at the highest level. You will get honest and totally impartial advice with the simple aim of helping you to surf better.

'Explorer' Coaching Sessions - For our novice members who are new to surfing or haven't surfed for a while, these sessions have been put together to give you everything you need to start off right and keep enjoying your surfing experience. From there it won't be long before you will be visiting our Surf Shed and booking on to our Progression sessions!

Session Times:

Morning: 9:30am - 12:30pm and Afternoon: 1:30pm - 4:30pm

We run 2 Progression coaching sessions a day, morning and afternoon.

We run 1 Explorer coaching session a day. Either in the morning or in the afternoon depending on the tide.

Our calendar tells you all you need to know about our session times for the month.

Free Access!! The Surf Shed is all about the gear! - You decide how and when to test and try as much equipment as you like from what we think is the best Surf Shed ever! A rack crammed with the latest boards, wetsuits,fins and accessories. This is the ideal way to discover your dream set up. That elusive combination of board / fins and even wetsuits! The ultimate Try before you Buy!

As we don't take commissions on sales born out of Academy sessions we can be completely independent with our honest advice. We will genuinely endeavour to get you on the equipment that is best suited to you. What we can do, of course, is put you directly in touch with the manufactures / shapers / shops themselves and make sure they look after you from there!

Guide to Surf Shed use:

As long as we are open there will be a daily "Surf Shed" session where you can pick and choose any equipment from the shed to use.

As a courtesy, we will give members booked into a coaching session priority when selecting equipment from the shed.

Book ahead - 'surf shed session' spaces will be limited. This is because we want to ensure that you get the best possible choice of equipment as an Academy member. If you are keen to try any specific equipment- do try to give us 24 hours notice - that way we can 'put your name on it! Of course you can always chance your luck and rock up on the day and hope for a free spot.

Our calendar tells you all you need to know about our daily session times.

The Inside Surfing Series is a calendar of monthly industry events with Pro Surfers, Shapers, Surf Industry specialists, kit reviews and technique analysis too!

These events are exclusive to our members. All members need to do is book in to reserve a place!

We also plan to make the most of the summer with weekly gatherings, impromptu promotions and special treats only available to Academy members. To keep up to date with what is happening, when and where, and also to see whether or not spaces are available, check out our calendar and follow us on twitter or facebook.

Sometimes we hear from you about your sessions at the Academy, it's good to know we help! Here are a few snippets from your messages.

- "really insightful observations and great tips on how to improve my technique and push my surfing further. The day filled me with enthusiasm and gave me particular points on which to focus that I know will have a huge effect on my progression."
- "It was also really interesting to try out some different boards and it transformed my view of what was suitable for me having had the experience and confidence from this coaching, I've gone smaller than I previously thought was possible."
- "The day was well worth every penny. The tips and constant corrections have already transformed my style and confidence."
- "An ideal introduction to surfing for me and my boys. I'll be recommending it to friends and hope to come back soon."
- "I'd like to say thanks for all the tips and equipment it really was a once in a lifetime opportunity - learning today hopefully should kick start my progression good and proper! I think the word i'm looking for is stoked!"

This is our calendar for the current month - we keep this up to date with our coaching and surf shed session times, special guests for our inside surfing series event(s) and all other such wonderful occasions we have planned for the here and now.


This month we have mostly been excited about the arrival of the first contest in the ASP World Championship Tour 2014! There are 11 in total. Contest No. 1 started the first week in March so check out the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. Amazing. So amazing that you should get involved by picking a Fantasy Surfer Team - just for fun ( oh and prizes...) We might even have an afternoon of Fantasy Surfer chat and gameplay - this is where it all gets serious, fun, ridiculous and downright dirty. Keep checking us on Facebook and Twitter for the date.
