Making a booking

Beginner Surfing Lessons

You can call us directly to make a booking for one of our daily group beginner surf lessons, or you can contact us through the contact page on this website. We recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment, turning up on the day without a booking is not advised, as we are quite busy during the surf season and there is a big chance we won’t have a place available for you.

We don’t require a deposit for booking our daily surfing lessons but if you are booked in, we do appreciate you contacting us to advise of cancellation.

Private Surfing Lessons

Private surfing lessons are essential to book in advance so we can arrange the best instructor to suit your level of surfing experience. We require a 50% deposit to confirm a private lesson booking.

Surfing Rentals

In the surf season from May to October, most people go directly to Bang Tao beach and hire surfboards from our Surfing School without making an advance booking. In the off-season our equipment is rented from the Saltwater Dreaming Surf Shop.

Also if you would like to rent a surfboard other than a soft top you need to go to the surf shop. If you wish to make an advance booking to avoid missing out please contact us. You don’t need a deposit to book surfboard.

Kids Surf Camps

Kids Surf Camps are essential to pre-book because we are always fully booked and have a limited number of places available. We require a 50% deposit to book a surf camp package.

Cancellation and Refund Policies

To confirm a booking for both Surf Camps and Private Lessons you must pay a 50% deposit. This deposit is non-refundable if the customer decides to cancel the booking within 24 hours for a private lesson or within 7 days for one of our surf camps. Otherwise we will refund the deposit less 10% for booking fees.

We are happy to transfer your booking date, or transfer your deposit to another person, if places are available.

Lessons and deposits are fully refundable if the Saltwater Dreaming Surfing School cancels the surfing lesson due to extreme weather conditions or other circumstances.


You should always have medical insurance whenever you travel abroad. Your medical insurance must cover you while you are surfing. It must also cover you in the event that you require emergency evacuation or repatriation.
