Why choose Surfcamp Sydney?

Surf Camp Australia is the original surf camp for beginners. Dating back since 1999, our successful format has enabled many people to experience the thrill of surfing.

Our multi-day progressive course is designed for the beginner surfers in mind. Most people who undertake the course are able to stand up within the first lesson!
Our beachside cabins are only a short distance from where the lessons are held. We’ll only ever accommodate a maximum of 7 people per room to ensure a comfortable stay.

We’re only based 2 hours away from Sydney so you won’t be wasting your surfing and party time with travelling.

I've never surfed before. is that OK?

 Definitely! Our progressive surf course is designed for absolute beginners in mind. We can’t stress enough that you don’t need any previous surfing experience to join our camps!

How many instructors per student?

You’ll get loads of one-on-one tuition. We have a maximum of 8 students per 1 instructor.

What's the average age of participants?

 Surf Camp Australia welcomes all ages. However, most of our surfers are 18 to 27 years of age. There is no age restriction, although we do require a full paying adult to accompany anyone under 17 years.

Can my friends and I stay in the same room?

 Generally we don’t allocate people to rooms until you arrive at the camp. If, however you do wish to stay in the same room as your friends, we’ll do our best to cater for this. Private double rooms are also available at an additional fee. Private accommodation is generally $120 extra per night and is dependent upon availability.

What happens if it rains?

 The lessons will still go on! Unless the conditions are unsafe, lessons will continue even if it rains.

Can I bring my own board?

 Depending on the type of board you’ve got, we generally prefer you to use our custom made boards, especially designed for beginner surfers.

Do you cater for vegetarians?

 Yes. We also cater for other dietary requirements upon request.

When's the best time of year to go to Surfcamp?

 The weather is warmest during our summer months of December through to February. However, some of the best waves are before and after this period. Surf Camp Australia operates between August and May.

Can I drive myself or make my own way to surf camp?

Yes. Just call us for the directions. There are other transportation options such as rail if you need to leave early or arrive late.
