Why Margaret River Surf School?

Whether you’re a backpacker living the campervan dream or a foodie broadening your palate at the amazing wineries and restaurants, a trip to Margaret River is not complete without surfing.

The region is positively saturated in surf culture and history that dates back to the year 1960s when a few intrepid Aussie blokes who spent more time looking for waves than working proper jobs tapped into the ‘Margies’ goldmine, with its powerful reefs and punchy beachies.

Feel the stoke of a surfing legacy.

Soon this lush coastline was firmly on the surfing map and has since come to epitomise the no-holds-barred Aussie approach to wave riding.

The family-run surf school of Jarrad Davies is a local institution and has been baptising beginners and coaching rising talent for over 20 years. Jarrad and his wife rightly believe you’re never too inexperienced or too old to paddle out and offer hands-on lessons to suit all ages and abilities, both private and in groups.

They not only guarantee that you’ll have a blast and taste the sacred ‘stoke’ that runs through the local blood, but that you’ll also be given a masterclass in Aussie surf slang. By the end of your time with Jazza, you’ll come to understand what these effortlessly cool guys are talking about when it comes to grommies, ledgo’s, leggies, wetties and twinnies!

In Short:

  • Surf Western Australia’s finest coastline.  
  • Taste world-class food and wine in Margaret River.
  • Pick up the lingo and you’ll never put it down!
