At Coast Rider Surf Academy, safety is paramount. While Clifton Beach offers exhilarating waves, it can also present challenges, prompting the academy to expand its teaching locations to include safer alternatives such as Stanley, Ulverstone, Burnie, Marrawah, and Sister Beach.

Specializing in beginner and intermediate surfers, Coast Rider Surf Academy provides comprehensive instruction with a strong emphasis on safety. All instructors are seasoned surfers certified by Surfing Australia and trained in rescue techniques. Classes are conducted in shallow waters, ensuring close supervision by instructors at all times.

Whether in group sessions or private lessons, students have the flexibility to choose what suits them best. Class packages of 3, 5, or 7 days are available, with all necessary equipment provided, including surfboards and insulated neoprene wetsuits.

For those seeking adventure beyond Clifton Beach, Coast Rider Surf Academy offers day or half-day surf excursions to various beaches in Hobart and the Tasman Peninsula. These excursions cater to all skill levels and preferences, taking advantage of Tasmania's year-round surfing opportunities.

Children aged 5 to 12 can embark on their surfing journey with the Surfgrom pack, designed to introduce them to the sport in a safe and enjoyable manner. Additionally, stand-up paddleboarding classes are available for those seeking a more tranquil watersport experience.
