More about Go Ride A Wave

Go Ride A Wave has 4 directors with a full time team based in Anglesea including an accountant, a national group bookings manager, a marketing/business development manager, a staffing and logistics manager and a national maintenance manager.  We have a structured pathway for staff who begin with us as assistant instructors with basic qualifications and limited experience.

The next level is to become a senior instructor – who has all the required qualifications for our various activities and significant experience, and then the next level is Instructor In Charge. These are the staff who arrange all the boards and wetsuits before each lesson and then also pack up and wash gear after the lesson. They are also in charge of everything that happens at the lesson. We do also have some seasonal full time staff who are chosen from our best Instructors in Charge.
