Breamlea near Torquay, Surf Lessons at Bancoora Beach
Breamlea near Torquay, surf lessons at Bancoora beach are held in front of the Bancoora Surf Life Saving Club which is not far from Torquay. It is a sheltered beach with an excellent safety rating from Surf Life Saving Victoria of 5/10. The higher the figure the more dangerous it is.
Bancoora Beach is a quieter beach in between Torquay and Barwon Heads. Head along Blackgate Road past the Torquay Airport and Tiger Moth World,until you reach the end then turn right to head towards Breamlea and take the first turn to the left into Surf Club Lane and go to the end and find our trailer in the car park near the surf club.
We plan to run daily lessons for the general public during the Dec/Jan School holidays and then on weekends up until easter. We will also run school group sessions at bancoora especially when it is busy at Torquay or if we have a large group who can not all fit at Torquay.
Bancoora Beach has a special resident for much of the year that we all need to be careful of. The Hooded Plover uses the beach to nest and can easily be disturbed enough to leave its nest and potentially lose its young. For that reason we need to be careful to keep away from any breeding birds who attempt to keep everyone away from their nest in the sand.
We run the lessons in waist deep water to keep it safe and provide full length Quiksilver wetsuits and soft beginner surf boards (G Boards) with 2 hours of quality instruction and fun. In school holidays there are more children involved in the lessons and outside school holidays
we get mostly adults.
Bancoora Beach is an excellent location to begin your surfing journey.
