Program

Australian Surf Tours is very proud to tell you that their weekend surf camp Australia is rated by Trip Advisor as the number one surfing experience in Sydney. It is two days and two nights in duration and is the most authentic and exciting Surf Camp Australia has to offer. From here, they will introduce you to the essence of surfing as they know it. Living on the beach, enjoying the outdoors with friends, and the immense feeling of freedom that the ocean gives.

During your two days and two nights with them, you will have the time of your life but also be put through a serious surf course aimed at having you leave with confidence and some new-found surfing skills. You will take four two-hour surf lessons including wetsuit and surfboard hire over the two days that will start with the basics and involve some different theory elements in each session to give you the best chance of success.

Highly skilled surf instructors will also do a video session with you where your surf coach will film you, break it down on the big screen, and correct your technique to help you improve. There is no better way to learn than to see your self. The evenings will be left up to you. Take your chance to enjoy this amazing weekend surf camp Australia style and book with them today. You will not regret it. You will have plenty of time to practice and perfect your surfing skill set.

If you are arriving by train to Thirroul station, you will be met and greeted by one of our lovely staff to transfer you back to the surf camp. They will check you into your rooms and have an orientation about the weekend and you will meet your surf coaches. Saturday morning will start with a provided breakfast of juice, coffee, tea, cereals, toasts, pastries, yogurts, eggs, and fresh fruit. After breakfast, your surf coach will drive you to the first two-hour surf session of the day.

Having a break for lunch before hitting the surf for your second surf lesson for the day, you will then head back to the surf camp to shower and relax. If you have got the energy still after all that surfing, Saturday night is great for a few drinks and some dinner at one of the local establishments, or you could just pass out early and get ready for another whole day of surfing on Sunday. Sunday morning will start the same way with a beautiful breakfast before heading off for your third surf session.

During this surf session, you will be filmed by the photographer. Over the lunch, back at the surf camp, your surf coach will host the video correction lesson before heading off for your final surf of the day. It is now time to shower, pack up, and head home with smiles on your faces and new friends.

Location

Australian Surf Tours is based only one hour south of Sydney City, located between the Royal National Park and beautiful escarpment and the ocean. There are over 20 pristine surf beaches locally and are based only on a two-minute walk from local shops, pubs, cafes, and more. They also have onsite parking for those that self drive. Once here, they will select one of four beaches they are licensed to surf on. Your surf instructor will take you with one of AST’s four-wheel-drive or mini-buses so you can relax and enjoy the scenery.

Thirroul

Thirroul Beach is on the northern end of the Wollongong city coastline. In fact, it is only about an hour drive south of central Sydney which makes it a perfect destination for a trip out of the city. Driving south along the Grand Pacific Drive, you can get a glimpse of the beautiful coastline this region has to offer, stop and have some lunch at Scarborough Hotel (best pub ever) and be sitting on beautiful Thirroul Beach before you even think about it. Coming from the south, it is only about 15 minute's drive from Wollongong City Center making it a perfect beach to escape the crowds.
