For women who want to enjoy the ocean environment!

The ocean environment is truly transformative, captivating our minds with the rolling waves, soothing our senses with the sound of the sea, grounding us with the soft sand under our feet, and immersing us with the invigorating salt air.

The ocean has an unparalleled ability to change our mood, allowing us to disconnect from our mundane routines and find inner peace. Scientific research has shown that spending time in the ocean, especially through activities like surfing, can significantly improve our social, mental, and physical well-being, boosting our self-confidence and emotional wellness.

Our Goddesses of the Ocean surf clinic programs offer a variety of sessions for women who want to connect with others, move, play, and learn both in and out of the ocean. Join us and become a true 'Goddess of the Ocean'.

Our surfing lessons take place in the beautiful setting of Burleigh Heads Beach and Tallebudgera Creek, where you can connect with the ocean in a playful and organic way.

Our experienced instructors will guide you through the fundamentals of surfing, paddling, and swimming, giving you the confidence to explore the ocean at your own pace. Whether you're looking to catch your first wave or improve your skills, our sessions offer a range of activities to suit your needs. From learning to surf and recreational surfing to ocean swimming, bodysurfing, and bodyboarding, every session is a chance to immerse yourself in the ocean and learn new skills.

Our instructors will teach you about the ocean environment, including rips, currents, and tides, and how to read the conditions to stay safe. You'll learn how to paddle and sit on a surfboard, swim in the ocean, bodysurf, and bodyboard with ease and confidence.

Our sessions are designed for women who want to connect with like-minded individuals, have fun, and embrace the fitness and health benefits that surfing can offer.
