Saltwater Surf School

Saltwater Surf School - // Australia's surfing coast //

Having spent part of his childhood living “out west”, Saltwater Surf School owner-operator Rob Wynter made his way back to the coast and the beachside village of Old Bar which he is determined never to leave again.

Taught to surf on his father’s Malibu board before moving to a very ‘modern’ single fin, Rob was on hand for the arrival of twin fin boards and has ridden them ever since.


Being an Aussie father living beachside, he enrolled his son at age five in the local surf club and then figured he should join.

After working his way through bronze, silver and gold lifesaving medallions, Rob found himself with the dream job of professional lifeguard on Old Bar Beach. Educating kids and adults about ocean skills and safety came easily and, with his wife Christine, Rob started a business teaching surf safety before taking over Saltwater Surf School.

Having completed a level two surf coaching certificate, Rob now takes on more work with intermediate/advanced surfers and is also president of Saltwater Boardriders Incorporated.
