SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES


SURF COURSE DETAILS



When learning to surf with Surfaris, we teach you more than just the basics. We teach you what it means to become a surfer. From ocean awareness, swell forecasting, wind patterns & tides, to surfboard design, surf etiquette and of course – riding waves. As a complete novice you will start at the beginning, and be given a helping hand in the water. But as the days go by, you will be able to gain the skills to go surfing independently on your own. You will spend full days, on the beach and in the water, focusing on the theory and practice of surfing, each day gaining more ocean knowledge, developing your board skills and your understanding of the ocean. Our coaches will be surfing with you every step of the way.
If you have surfed before and know what you are doing, Surfaris Surf Camp is the perfect place for you. This stretch of coast we have access to at Crescent Head is one of the "must surf" destinations on the planet, with countless uncrowded breaks.

Our customers have the option to advence form SOFT BOARDS TO HARD BOARDS during the week as we assess and instruct your skills.

This reviewer told us :

Accommodation was fantastic.

Surfing:

So enjoyed my 5 days at Surfaris. Had surfed only twice before, thought i would give it another go while in australia. Chose Surfaris as it was recommended and has been around for over 20 years. These guys know what they are doing. Up early in the morning out all day and surfing at a variety of spots. The weeks conditions were perfect. My best memory was endless right handers (surf jargon i learnt !!!!!) at BigHill.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

All the equipment is quality, food is excellent and I recommend Surfaris to anybody who wants to learn to surf.

This reviewer told us :

I got a private room and paid a bit extra, the motel rooms are really nice and comfortable.  share accomodation is good to but i liked my own space.

Surfing:

It is great how you can have a group of people with different surf skills.  In the group their were beginners and some more advanced, all are catered for. Early mornings of waking up and watching the sunrise then surfing is magic.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

The food, accomodation, staff and surf lessons are all  delivered at a high standard at Surfaris. I have been on other surf camps and highlight Surfaris as the best. Its not a party camp, a real surf camp with all your focus on getting the best waves for the day. Yoga we did on the beach and back at the lodge - a must do to relax your muscles,  I loved the place and will be back soon. Thankyou Rossco.
