Margaret River Senior High School offers a variety of surf programs. The overall rationale of the programs is to encourage students to engage in water based activities, to utilise the surf environment and to enhance the surf culture that is strongly present within the community of Margaret River.
The Surf Academy is a talented and gifted program that is endorsed by the Department of Education and Training to pursue excellence in surfing. Students are selected to participate in this program and the main criteria for selection are practical surfing skills and competitive surfing results. This program operates before school on a designated day of the week and high performance coaches are employed to enhance skill acquisition and provide feedback to the athletes to assist them with their future professional surfing aspirations.
