What to Expect
For a real surfing experience that will give you the practical skills and theoretical knowledge you need to surf on your own, this is the camp for you. This 2-day camp is rated as the number 1 surf camp experience in Sydney and combines an 8-hour progressive learn-to-surf course that includes everything from board design, correct positioning, paddling, catching waves, timing and getting on your feet. Learn correct technique, get constructive criticism and get the most out of your surfing experience in Australia.
Travel to a beautiful place on the south coast of New South Wales in the region of Shoalhaven, roughly 220 kilometers south of Sydney or about a 3-hour drive. The surf camp is located in a small coastal village called Bendalong and is a popular tourist destination for Sydney-siders looking for a quiet break from the city. The area has 6 amazing beaches that all face different directions so you can always find the perfect surf conditions to make waves on any day. The camp is located on a peninsula and by Conjola National Park which makes for great wildlife interaction.
Transport to the camp is completely free. Travel in air-conditioned, late model mini buses. There are also luggage trailers so you can bring all your luggage and even your board if you have one.
On top of the surfing, enjoy a wildlife experience you'll never forget! Feed giant stingrays by hand, pat kangaroos, surf with dolphins and interact with playful possums at night in between surfs. Go swimming in crystal-clear natural rock pools, eat fresh oysters from the rocks and maybe catch an octopus or 2.
The food at the camp is another highlight of this weekend. Enjoy traditional Australian BBQ-style food with seasonal fresh salads of a wide variety that are healthy and fresh and provide the energy needed to surf all day.
The camp is part of Australia’s peak body for surfing, Surfing Australia. During your surf weekend, you will receive the highest standard of coaching, from fully-qualified coaches with certificates in lifesaving, working with children and senior first aid.
