Back in 2002 we launched our Godfathers of the Ocean Celebrity Calendar featuring Kelly Slater on the cover and some of the Worlds best surfers, Ironmen, Swimmers and triathletes. This was the first time ever that a calendar featured some of the worlds best waterman.. to name a  few featured; Kelly Slater, Luke Egan, Occy, Joel Parkinson, Grant Hackett, Ky Hurst, Sunny Garcia, Munga, Trevor Hendy, Geoff Huegill...

We will post some of the featured pages of the calendar over the next few weeks.


Here you can see Head Coach Michael 'Munga' Barry in Godfathers of the Ocean Surf School first ever news article in the Gold Coast Bulletin in April 2001


Although Munga's son Kiarn can already surf, Munga continually supports and coaches him. Munga beleives that surfing is a continual learning experience and that you are never too experienced to recieve on going coaching, it is only nautural given the ocean changes every day!


It was in April 2001 that our surf school opened to the public.

12 years has passed with many satisfied customers, this photo was taken in our early days of opening, we have many great memories of our surf school and charity events that we have held to share with you all.
