Nudie SurfGroms is a fantastic national kids program designed by Surfing Australia, and endorsed by Mick Fanning. XL Surfing Academy are proud to be one of the official surf academy’s in Australia offering this awesome learn to surf nudie program. It’s a brilliant program for groms wanting to learn to surf, build up their confidence and knowledge (in and out of the surf), as well as creating lasting friendships.


Nudie SurfGroms adopts an approach to learning that uses group-based games to not only equip your child with the skills they need to surf and/or SUP, but also to encourage their participation by having fun. Every nudie SurfGroms lesson is designed purposefully to create a positive and supportive learning environment.

Nudie SurfGroms teaches children from 5-12 years old core skills in the ocean across five incremental skill levels, as well as fundamental Ocean Awareness and Beach Safety skills such as surf survival and rescue techniques; basic first aid skills; and about varying surf conditions at the beach.
