This year, Pacific will again offer the opportunity for Year 5-12 students to become members of the Pacific Boardriders (PBR). The program provides a structured opportunity to develop individual surfing skills and grow the culture of surfing within the College.

PBR sessions will be held on Friday mornings at locations around the southern end of the Sunshine Coast, dependent on prevailing conditions (primarily Currimundi Beach and Caloundra). Term 1 sessions will commence on Friday 28th February (Week 5). Sessions will also be offered in Semester 2 (Term 3 and 4).

Requirements for Participation

To be eligible to participate in PBR, participants must be able to swim and surf competently (negotiate the break and catch waves unassisted) in various surf conditions and provide all their own equipment (surfboard, wetsuit etc.). Parents are responsible for transporting their child to and from the session venue each Friday morning.

Due to stringent supervision and safety requirements, participation in the program will be capped at 24 students and will be dependent on individual competencies, including an ocean swim and board paddle, assessed by the teachers in charge.

Please note that these Friday morning sessions are not a ‘learn to surf’ program.

To register your child’s interest in this program, please email Mr Darren Hooper ( to receive further information via CareMonkey.
