Josh Palmateers Surf Academy

Josh Palmateers Surf Academy

Learn to surf from the professionals

Josh Palmateer was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1970. He spent most of his childhood in the water - competing in both swimming and surf life saving at State and National level - before turning to surfing at the age of 12. He was immediately hooked, and his natural ability combined with all those 5 a.m. swimming training sessions soon saw him having as much success in the waves as he had in the pool (at least that's what his mum says...).

Josh and another partner introduced surf coaching to Margaret River in 1994, starting up the first private surf school in Western Australia. In 1995 Josh launched his own Surf Academy. It now runs classes in Margaret River and Mandurah from November to May, and travels to Broome in the off-season from July to October. General classes run every day (depending on surfing conditions), in addition to special classes for school groups as part of the School Sports Curriculum, and tourist groups as part of Adventure Company trips.
