Nestled in the charming tourist town of Dodges Ferry in the state of Tasmania, Island Surf School provides an excellent gateway to the world of surfing. Named after Ralph Dodge, a local figure who operated a ferry in the 1820s, this small town with less than 3,000 inhabitants offers a picturesque setting for surf enthusiasts.

Island Surf School primarily conducts surf lessons on the pristine shores of Park Beach, and occasionally ventures to the scenic Clifton Beach in Hobart. The school caters to all levels and ages, providing the flexibility of group or private lessons. Class packages, ranging from 2 to 10 days, allow learners to progress at their own pace, with surfboards and neoprene suits always included.

With the main instructor boasting over 15 years of teaching experience and accredited as level 1 by Surfing Australia, Island Surf School ensures high-quality instruction. The instructor is also a member of the Australian Sports Commission, emphasizing the school's accreditation and insurance to operate in both Park Beach and Clifton Beach. Given the occasional challenging currents in Australian waters, water safety is a top priority.

In addition to surf lessons, Island Surf School offers Stand Up Paddle classes, tapping into the global trend of this rapidly growing sport. Safe, enjoyable, and an excellent workout, Stand Up Paddle is a fantastic way to explore the waters and stay fit.
