…leaving your car and worries behind

If you’re a confident surfer who is looking for privacy, you’ll love how quiet the unpatrolled Alexandria Bay can be. Local surfers with a hint of experience under their belt can be found at Boiling Pot and Sunshine Beach, for tourists who are looking for a bit of local submersion. Whatever your level of expertise, Noosa offers the perfect spot for you to hop on board with a new hobby.

Go Ride a Wave, a popular surf school in Noosa, gives two hour lessons each day and they even provide rash shirts or wetsuits and beginner surf boards.
