The Manly Surf School story began in 1982 with legend surfer Matt Grainger.

The school teaches beginners to elite surfers – currently training Australian Champions and World Title finalists such as Laura Enever and Davey Cathals.

The school prides itself on having instructors that love surfing, that have and still do surf in surfing contests, and have a natural enthusiasm whilst teaching surfing. A high percentage of the instructors are current and ex-professional surfers.

Matt and his team love nothing better than surfing big, perfect waves together at home and overseas. So grab that wetsuit, wax up your board and hit the surf with them!

Much like learning to surf, the International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) has become a global leader in education and is proud to be the major sponsor of the festivals daily Learn to Surf lessons!
