Barton Lynch emerged from the beach breaks of Manly to become one of the most successful professional surfers of all time. His 15 year career included 17 World Championship victories and the highlight was winning the 1988 ASP World Championship. He is now widely recognised as one of the world's leading surf coaches, an expert commentator and still loves to surf more than anything.

Access Barton’s vast experience and knowledge from 35 years of surfing and coaching to assist you to improve your surfing performance regardless of your current performance level - although you must be able to paddle and catch your own waves, stand to your feet and ride a wave. BL will help you with your knowledge of the ocean and the breaks you surf and show you how to manage the lineup to catch more waves.

There will be a focus on learning the correct techniques and style for all the manoeuvres. Barton Lynch will share stories from his years on the world tour and give you an insiders view into the world of professional surfing as well as equipment analysis - quiver and board advice from the World Champion.

Adam (June 2018)

This was my first surf trip of this nature and it certainly exceeded my expectations.  BL's professionalism, enthusiasm, positivity and honesty were very much appreciated.  I will take a different philosophy into my surfing from here on in.  I will certainly remember Barton's advice and put that into play each session. The trip was sensational.  Thank you very much.

Adam (September 2017)

The crew on the boat were amazing we didn’t need to ask for anything. The main reason why we all went on the boat was to talk and surf with a world champ, which Barton went way beyond what he had to do spending more time with each individual person in and out of the water than anyone of us expected. I'd like to thank Barton Holly and Lion, all the crew on boat and at the Perfect Wave and a big thanks to Andy Potts for the photos and vids of our trip of a lifetime which we can always watch and remember.
