Learn how to surf with Perth Go Surf, an ASI accredited surf school, located at Brighton Beach (southern end of Scarborough Beach), Perth, Western Australia. It’s one of the Perth’s favourite locations for learning to surf. Perth Go Surf offers group and private surfing lessons, beginner and intermediate surfing certificate courses, surfing guide trips, team building, surfing awareness for kids, adults, parties, school groups, backpackers and corporate. Large groups can be accommodated. Perth Go Surf is owned and run by a father and son team, Andy and Tom “Bomber” Johnston. Andy is a veteran of the sport with over 35 years of surfing experience and has surfed all over the world.

Bomber has since traveled extensively around the globe, surfing and teaching surfing to people from all walks of life. He’s been surfing since he can remember, has represented Western Australia in the sport and has been coaching surfing for 10 years. Bomber, Andy and the Go Surf team are all accredited surfing instructors, holding surf rescue, and senior first aid qualifications and working with children checks.
