I Beth, now your never going to learn how to spell proper with that texty language now will you!!

This is a forum where you have use of a full keyboard! -

anyway - average, it takes about 1 day to stand up, 4 days to start to steer and about 20 days to start to get good.

This is solid surfing - ok so this may take months, surfing is usually about $45 for half a DAy with a group.

iz that OK 4 U?

I guess it took me about 6 months, over the whole summer, to surf well. I say well, when i guess i should just say "stand up and ride a whole wave". I just went out with friends, no proper lessons.

Depends on a few things.....how good your balance is, and how good the waves are where you live. Here in Mount Gambier its too cold for me in winter, so i can only surf in the summer, and the waves are generally pretty small and messy.

If you are heading to the sunshine coast however, or anywhere on the east coast south of here, you will get muuuuch nicer waves.

Good luck. Its good fun.

Where are you moving to? There's surf schools all over the country but why not learn like most of us Aussies did ... Just buy a board and get out there with your friends! One summer should do it unless you're totally hopeless

eee lass, you will soon have loads of friends....and half the fun of learning is the falling in the water.... i would imagine there will be plenty of kids willing to teach you too.......
