Learn to Surf – News update!
Hope everyone enjoyed their trip this week, we had some glorious weather and quality waves (PERFECT COMBINATION!).
For anyone who wants to practice what they have learnt at camp, I highly recommend Cronulla beach as it is a short distance away from the city and it can be quiet when everywhere else is crowded. The Rip Curl store there has soft board hire for $20 a day and demo board hire for $40 a day! If anyone wants to have a look at the boards in the city, come and see us in the Rip Curl store on Market St. Our Surf Camp customers get huge discounts on beginner surfboard packages!

2. Justine Dupont’s follow cam shoot at La Graviere (France)
“The guys are always a bit intrigued when they see a girl in the water at La Graviere when it’s heavy… I just try to make sure I don’t fall on my first wave, otherwise you’ll get dropped in on every time. The locals there don’t really gift me waves just coz I’m a girl or anything, but they’re friendly enough anyway, I guess they know me a bit by now. Read more here.
