Fancy turning the beach into your office? Well this epic 3 month zero to hero surf instructor training course in Australia will help turn your love of waves into your dream job!
You’ll join the crew of Mojo Surf at their famous Spot X Surf Camp in Australia where their experienced and certified instructors will take you through everything you need to know about becoming a surf instructor yourself.
Starting with the basics like learning to pop and paddle you’ll have a mixture of beach training, theory and in water practical sessions to help build up your surf skills and knowledge and if you’re already a competent surfer this is the ideal opportunity to iron out any bad habits you may have picked up!
As you progress you’ll learn more about ocean safety, riding unbroken waves, how to turn – all under the watchful eye and guidances of your coaches.
After two months of surf training and plenty of time in the water you’ll be a competent and confident surfer – then it’s time to start learning about coaching techniques and the skills needed to become a surf instructor yourself.
With the course sessions running Monday – Friday you’ll also have plenty of time to enjoy the waves and explore the surrounding area on your time off, maybe a road trip up to Byron Bay with your new surf buddies?
It’s 3 month filled with surf, sun, fun and adventure – which finishes up with a world recognised certification and opens up an incredible opportunity to surf, travel and work!
This course is suitable for all levels of surfer – whether you’ve never had a lesson before or are already comfortable riding waves.
