Waves Surf School • Bondi 2026star4.9(View 292 reviews)


    Whether you're a short boarder, long boarder, stand up paddle border, body boarder, super experienced or just a beginner, we've got you covered.

    Surf Sydney with Waves Surf School's head coach, Deano - local surf Guru, Guide and ASI Accredited Surf Instructor. Sydney born and bred, he has surfed since he was 7 years old (so he's clocked 1/2 a century of cruising, carving and cutting back). From city beaches to secret secluded local's beaches, he knows them all!

    Beginner Groups
    - Your location will most be a Private Access beach, 40mins south of the City
    - Your surf location/s for the day will be decided on the morning of the trip, to ensure we find the best breaks for your level, and the conditions nature presents us with.
    - We will travel as far north as Avalon Beach (a fav of Kelly Slater) and as far south as The Farm - and everywhere in between.

    - Return transport to locations of your choice
    - Wetsuits
    - Surf board (Soft boards only - some hard boards options are available but may incur additional charges)
    - Lunch (full day only) & snacks

    - We tailor the pick up and drop off times to suit you. So if you're a dawn patroller, sunset surfer or midday sun worshipper, we'll work with the tides, the swell and your schedule.

    Full Day
    - $500 for the 1st Surfer
    - $150 (30%) for additional Surfers
    Half Day
    - $350 for the 1st Surfer
    - $105 (30%) for additional Surfers

    A private presurf stretch & yoga session is option, for an additional $80 (mats supplied)

Waves Surf School offers Surf Day Trips, Surf Overnight Camps and Surf Yoga Escapes. We have been operating out of Sydney for over 20 years. More recently we have introduced Overnight Ski Trips during the winter season.

Owned and operated by Dean 'Deano' Dunstone, this father of two teenagers is a qualified surf instructor, professional skater & actor, landscape designer and horticulturalist.

An amazing rapport with people of all ages, safety is Deano's main priority, yet fun is undoubtedly what he exudes.

Waves have run School Surf Camps with Barker College, Outdoor Education Group, German International School, Bridigine College, Brighton Grammar and Haileybury College.


Day trips are tailored to first timers and experienced groms.

Overnight surf camps have been created for groms with an intermediate to advanced level.

My 12 yo had an awesome time. The organisation was pretty slick, communication was excellent and bad weather options were enjoyable! I think my son is angling for a camping trip next!

Hi Alison, the next overnight camp will be in the Winter Holidays. (The odd easter weekend interrupted this holiday's option!) We hope he can join out day trips over Autumn though.

Great trip! Everyone was getting up on their own by the end of the day. The small group and whole day of surfing was the best way to learn.
