Want to know our best-kept secret? Winter is the BEST time to learn to surf in Victoria! Immerse yourself in the surf lifestyle and have an absolute blast! Enjoy spending a week learning how to surf, how to read the waves, exploring with friends, getting cosy with yoga, and eating loads and loads of delicious food.

What's Included?

7 nights accommodation

Drift off to sleep in a giant bell tent while listening to the waves rolling in. All our tents are fitted out with heaters, kettles, and hot water bottles so you'll be super toasty and warm throughout your stay.  Shared camping is standard with the option to upgrade to a private tent or cabin when available. 

5 x 2 hour progressive surf lessons

You're not just going to learn to stand up. For our beginners, we begin to cover turning, wave selection, and hopefully progress you from white wash to riding those green unbroken waves! For our more experienced crew, we'll be looking at your form and helping you to optimise the way you surf for more powerful manoeuvres or just so you can hang out in the line up for longer. Winter truly is the best time to improve your surfing game - the waves are consistently good, there are no crowds so you don't have to worry about running into anyone while you're practicing your moves, and there is nothing - NOTHING - better than having a hot shower after an epic winter surf sess. 

Nourishing meals while at camp 

Delicious plant-based  family style meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner while you're here. Our food is fuckin' next level and here to fuel your surfing and adventures. You'll be begging for the recipes by the time you head home! Also, there's nothing better than jumping out of the surf and having a hot meal waiting for you!

4 x 1 hour yoga classes

Wind down and stretch out during with these yoga classes, suitable for all levels and abilities. Helping to relax and restore your body before your next surf session.

Surf theory sessions

Let us teach you proper surf etiquette, how to read wave forecasts and so much more! These sessions are here to answer all the question you have about anything surfing, and for us to give you a little bit of our knowledge so you can go out into the lineup with more confidence and understanding of what's happening around you. 

Unlimited board and wetsuit hire during your stay

Want to keep playing in between your lessons? We've got you covered! That includes both fibreglass (hard) surfboards and foamies (our beginner foam surfboards). Surf as much as you like outside of our scheduled lessons! This is a surf camp after all.
