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.


Legendary swim coach Laurie Lawrence with former Australian Swimmer and Godfathers of the Oceans' Krista Barry at Surfing Australia's coaches conference at Twin Towns earlier this week. Laurie impressed many high profile coaches with his inspirational speech on how to motivate young surfers to elite level in the sport.


A big congratulations goes out to Owen Wright mens winner of the Burleigh Breakka Pro with runner up Adam Melling and womens winner Sally Fitzgibbons who is now riding for Firewire Surfboards. The waves were fun for the entire event for both men’s & women’s competition with some high performing International surfers entering the event.

The highest placed local surfers were Thomas Woods (Burleigh) & Brent Dorrington (Coolangatta) reaching the Quarter Finals.

The week long event was a success for both competitors and organizers and brought back some awesome surfing on display at Burleigh, home of Godfathers of the Ocean Surf School.

Godfathers of the Ocean hosted the All Girls Surf Session for an episode on Totally Wild TV show on Channel 10, coming soon.

Stay tuned for images and video footage of the day!


Wow, Our Surf School groms this morning, Blake and Jean-Marc had the shock of their lives when inspirational Hawaiin Surfer Bethany Hamilton finished her surf and took time out for a quick pick at our surf school session this morning at Burleigh!
