"Amazing time!"

The surf camp was sooo fun! The instructors are super friendly and helpful. They really make you feel comfortable. They give great instructions and break down the process of surfing to make it easy to follow.

Such a fun experience thanks to the Soul Surf team. Croft is an awesome instructor! Along with all the others! They're all super friendly, knowledgeable and patient!

Even got to catch a green wave and see dolphins on the last day.

all the instructors are pretty good and responsible, they will get into the water and push you and tell you about the theories. the soul surf staff are pretty flexible and nice. we had a private lesson with Ze Rui. It was so good and that was the sickest session I have ever had.

I did the 5 day surf and stay camp and it was awesome! The instructors were super friendly and fun. They got everyone up on the board the first day and by the end of the course we were catching green waves. Honestly loved it all

"Epic and fantastic experience !"

What an amazing time we had learning to surf with you !! We had no idea how to stand up on a board and after only 2 weeks we could catch some pretty nice green waves by ourself.

And most importantly we had the best time thanks to the crazy, funny, friendly coaches always trying to make you a better surfer. They were so encouraging at every step and never stopped giving us some great advice !

Special applause to :

Jack for those last three days - they were the best,

Iniaki for the kick ass pictures,

Johnny, your advice as good as your drum session,

Kyle, your doggy and your funny jokes,

Nathan, alway helping us at the shop and in the water,

Crawf for your crazy vibe,

And Tommy with that little french vibe !

Thanks so so much and see you all riding the next wave,

"Great experience. "

Everything is well organized, the school contacted me before the stay to keep informed about everything. All the team is very nice and friendly. Surf instructors are professionals and paid a lot of personal attention to everyone. Amazing spots to surf, great waves, I've got a lot of fun. Hope to come back next year!

"Good for beginners not for people who already surfed"

The hostel was great, clean and everything new. Only downside was that the room didn't have air conditioning

"Surf and stay"

We loved our hostel, it was clean and had a really friendly staff! The hostel was only a 2 minute walk from soul surf.

We also loved Soul surf!!! We learned so much from Ross and Rod! All the instructors were so funny and easygoing. We had so much fun!

"Awesome experience"

I was amazed at how much you can learn and the skills you can gain in just four days. The instructors were great at teaching technique and being supportive and helpful in the water. On our last day we got to go out beyond the breaking waves and surf with the dolphins - totally awesome! It was also great to be able to grab a board from the shop to practise in the afternoons. I think I surfed to exhaustion everyday! I just wish I had booked in for a longer stay.

"Best time surfing ever!"

Fun instructors but also very informative and take the time to make sure you progress. I had never surfed before and I felt so comfortable in the water. By day three I was out surfing on the blue waves which was the best feeling! Now all I want to do is find another holiday to surf!

"5 Day Delux Surf Camp"

The environment, layed back but positive, friendly, approachable instructors.

They all really cared about your back story and what they ciuld do to devop your skills.

We recently did a 3 day surf and stay at Byron Bay with Soul Surf. All the instructors were absolutely fantastic! We had the pleasure of working with Rodrigo, Ross, Chris and did a semi-private session with Kroft. Each instructor showed enthusiasm and patience towards all surfers give the best experience possible. They remained down to earth but were willing to offer additional information and support in order to learn the key components to surf independently. I would definitely recommend Soul Surf to anyone wanting to improve or learn some new surfing skills.

"I definitely revisit."

I liked the Bellina beach. It was a perfect place for beginners.

It is impressive that Soul Surf have 6 spots so the instructor choose according to the daily weather and wave.
