URBNSURF by Helicopter with Rotor One

What to expect - Flying by Helicopter to URBNSURF in Melbourne

We're not joking when we say this is the ultimate bucket list experience for mad keen surfers. We reserve a private helicopter for you and up to 3 mates and fly you directly to URBNSURF.

Board the chopper at one of several locations outside Melbourne including Lilydale in the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Torquay on the Great Ocean Road, or if you wanna fly in from another airstrip, drop us a line and we'll see what we can do.

Your scenic helicopter ride or “surf taxi” takes just 25 - 40 minutes (depending on your departure location) and flies past Melbourne for gorgeous views of the city and the jumbo jets coming in to Tullamarine Airport, before flying a lap overhead URBNSURF and descending for a rockstar landing at a private helipad next to the wave pool. 

On the ground - Your surf session at URBNSURF in Tullamarine

As you jump out of the helicopter you'll be greeted by one of the legends at URBNSURF with your rental board and escorted straight into the water for your 2 hour surf session - a left or right hander set at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level - it's your choice.

Find your flow and hit some barrels during your surf session as your waves are pumped out with gnarly consistency thanks to URBNSURF's insane Wave Garden machine.

Post-surf Lunch - Three Blue Ducks restaurant with lunch included

Once you're done with your surf session, head on over to the Three Blue Ducks restaurant for lunch and a selection of the chef's favourite dishes on their 'Feed Me' menu incorporating wholesome food made from ethically sourced ingredients (some of which are grown right in their kitchen) that are guaranteed to leave you with a dolmio grin.

Return Helicopter Flights - Flying home from URBNSURF 

After lunch take a quick walk back to the chopper where you'll load up and depart Urban Surf in style with one last view of the wave pool from your window seat before turning back over Melbourne for an amazing scenic helicopter ride home, capping off the most epic and only heli-surfing experience in Australia.

Where are you located?

Rotor One is located at Hangar 7 Wirraway Rd, Essendon Fields and off-street parking is available next to our building. When you arrive look for the red door that says 'Melbourne Heli'.

Do you depart from other locations, like the City Helipad?

We depart from Essendon Airport as you have an amazing view of the Melbourne City skyline from the moment you step onto the tarmac. We can arrange helicopter pickups from regional airports including Lilydale, Coldstream, Barwon Heads, Torquay and others upon request. We unfortunately do not offer flights from the City Helipad on the Yarra River.

When should I arrive?

For a relaxed experience, please arrive 10 minutes before your booking begins.  

Can bad weather prevent us from flying?

Yes, adverse weather conditions such as low cloud, fog, heavy rain or high winds may require your flight to be delayed or rescheduled. If this is the case, your pilot will contact you at least 2 hours prior to your booking time to reschedule your flight to another day/time or provide a full refund.

Google says it's going to rain. Should I reschedule?

We will make a "Fly" or "No Fly" decision on the day of your flight. If bad weather is present on the day, we'll call or SMS you at least 2 hours prior to your booking.

There's no need to contact us to reschedule based on Google or Apple's weather forecast. These forecasts often change on the day (especially in Melbourne!) and we monitor live weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology every day before we fly. 

We'll do everything we can to get you flying on the day, wherever it is safe to do so

Can I use my camera or phone during flight?

Yes, we encourage you to take as many photos and videos on the ground, and in the air, as possible.

What should I wear?

Please bring a pair of sunglasses and you're welcome to wear clothing appropriate to the weather. We do recommend a wind-breaker jacket for any sunrise / doors-off flights and also when flying on our 12 Apostles tour as both experiences can be windy.

Why do I need to provide my weight?

We use this to calculate the weight and balance of the helicopter prior to flight. If you have any guests weighing over 120kg or a combined passenger weight of more than 240kg, please contact us prior to booking.

Are there age restrictions for children?

We only recommend flights for children over 4 years of age and every child must occupy their own seat and pay the full seat price.
