nudie Surf Grom Programs
Salty Surf School provides the highest standard of surf coaching on the shores of the Mornington Peninsula at Point Leo and Shoreham. We cater for all age groups and especially pride ourselves on our unique Surf Groms Program.
Owner Fraser Ross has surfed the local area his entire life and has coached for the last ten years. He is dedicated to sharing his passion and knowledge of the ocean with others, bringing an intimate knowledge of tides, breaks and teaching techniques to create a safe and productive environment for the surf grom kids.
We believe that learning to surf at a young age sets the foundation for an enjoyable and healthy lifestyle as well as establishing skills that will last a lifetime. Ocean safety is an extremely important part of our program, always ensuring that the surf conditions are appropriate to the kids' ages and ability levels.
We provide all equipment required including top quality wetsuits! Our programs are intentially kept to a maximum of 7 groms per program with an average of 3 staff per class to keep student / instructor ratios as low as possible.
Our programs focus on skill building, perfecting technique, surfing etiquette and safety, knowledge of rips and tides as well as fun games and a positive, friendly attitude between staff and students.
We keep high ratios of instructors to ensure your child has a safe, enjoyable and progressive session. More hands are always welcome tho! Parents are welcome to get in the water and lend a hand, Salty is happy to provide a wetsuit and boots if needed!
The feedback of our programs has been consistently positive!
"I had my 2 kids, aged 6 and 8, participate in the Groms program over summer with Fraser and his crew. It was brilliant, they can't wait to go back. They learnt how to surf correctly, were safe in the water, and advanced way more quickly than I thought. My son was surfing out the back by the end of summer. Fraser has all the equipment you need, and takes the time with individual kids to pick up the different styles they have. My 2 year old even got in on the action. Looking forward to warmer weather to get back again."
"My 10 yr old daughter participated in surf school program as a relative beginner and she loved it! Fraser and his team are fabulous with people of all ages and very inclusive and shared their passion for the ocean and she learnt to surf! Starting what could well be a life long passion 😊"
"Great surf program for our 5 year old over school holidays. Really safe non intimidating environment. Highly recommend!"
