Discovery Surfing Academy

At Discovery Christian College we are blessed with many talented and passionate surfers among our students. Some of them have already achieved notable success within the School Surfing context and beyond.

To support, engage and celebrate our top surfing students we launched the Discovery Surfing Academy.

Discovery Surfing Academy

The Academy offers:

  • excellent surf training and coaching in long and short board disciplines,
  • support to enter and compete in local and regional contests,
  • enrichment programs to gain experience and qualifications in surf coaching, health and well-being, surf lifesaving, and industry insights.

The Discovery Surfing Academy is one of only several schools nationwide providing integrated surf coaching and tuition.

Entry into the program is based on both surfing ability and the individual merits of each student.
