One of Queensland’s few relatively untouched island paradises, with over 80% zoned National Park. Its beautiful white sandy beaches, warm waters and small rolling waves make Bribie Island the ideal location for the beginner surfer. Bribie Island is the closest patrolled surfing beach to Brisbane and is linked to the mainland by bridge, making access extremely easy for those travelling from Brisbane and surrounding areas.
Sand bottomed beach breaks with the waves normally bigger further north up the beach from Woorim. Perfect for beginners of all ages, with good sandbars for catching short whitewater waves for kids and beginners learning to surf and even a fun long-board wave on higher tides when the surf is small and the waves are spilling.
Ideal conditions await in a northerly wind and swell direction combine to produce ideal conditions for beginners and intermediate surfers. You will find waves up and down the beach!
The Kawana stretch of beach lies between Mooloolaba to the North and Caloundra to the south, with a range of sandbanks to choose from.
Our lessons are conducted at Wurtulla (closer to Caloundra), and in front of the life guard tower. The beauty of a quiet, uncrowded and open beach awaits!
Sand bottomed beach break, which can produce great left and right handed waves for all levels of surfing.
