Proprietor, Simon Twitchen, started coaching in the UK at just 18 years of age before opening Croyde Bay UK’s first surf school, which he ran it for 23 years. Croyde Beach is one of the best surf spots in the UK and in time this helped establish surfing and surf coaching in the UK. Simon moved to Australia in 2009.

Simon was also a passionate competitive surfer who competed for 25 years winning a number of awards including surfer of the year and the JSC masters. He is also an established competition surf coach.

His surf school in the UK was so successful that it contributed to the local economy – unheard of back in 1989!

He took over the Ulladulla surf school in 2010 and it is now one of the most multi-awarded companies on the south coast. The company came 2nd in the 2017 South Coast Tourism Awards, Won business of excellence in 2015, and took first place in 2014/ 2013 in the Shoalhaven Excellence in Business Awards for tourism and hospitality.

Simon and the team at Ulladulla Surf School all hold a minimum of ASI level 1 surfing instructor qualification as well as surf rescue and first aid qualifications.


The School offers private and group lessons to all ages and abilities from beginner to advanced-elite level. They offer competition coaching, team building, corporate groups, community groups, youth and school groups.

They offer surf awareness courses; surf hire and a host of other water sports activities too.

They even have a 23ft wake & ski boat for you to surf behind for some super long rides!

Ulladulla Surf School specialises in teaching people to progress no matter what their surfing ability. Their moto is “Just don’t stand there” and they aim to improve your surfing skills, beginner or elite.

Their class sizes are small with up to 5 students per instructor (rather than the usual ratio of 1-8) and they offer a full program of water sports.

Simon and his team put a lot of effort, passion and fun into their surfing lessons. He and his team aim to share the passion they have for water sports to give their customers the very best experience and one they will never forget.
