bells pro 2024
week-long surf camp
We're hosting a very special Week In The Life Surf Camp from March 24th -31st 2024 that includes our incredible surf camp experience (surfing lessons, yoga, luxe glamping accommodation, surf theory sessions, all your meals, and so much more).
PLUS, we'll also be taking you to the Bells Pro comp every day they call it on, paying for your entry to the event every day, and keeping you in the loop with all the opportunities (parties, signings, meet and greets, etc) to hang out with your surfing idols. The atmosphere down here is electric while the World Surf League is in town and we'd love to share it with you.
The Rip Curl Bells Pro is the longest-running surfing competition in the world and a fave location for many of the professional surfers that come down and compete. Bells has hosted many insane clashes and seen some of the best waves in any competition globally. Long story short - you don't want to miss it!
As all the pros and sponsors filter into our little part of the world, Torquay comes alive with events, meet and greet opportunities, parties, and so many opportunities to run into your fave surfer in the lineup (in the ocean and at the Wholefoods). It's an incredible 10 days of seeing people push the limits in this sport we love so much and we're giving you the chance to be a part of it!
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. A private bell tent is standard but an upgrade to a cabin may be available.
Nourishing meals while at camp
Delicious plant-based family style meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner while you're here. Our food is 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!
Entry fees and transport to the Rip Curl Bells Pro
Every morning the competition gets called 'on', we'll be there.
We'll cover the cost of entry and drive us all there. We've also got you covered for snacks, umbrellas, hot drinks, picnic blankets, and everything else that'll make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
Local knowledge on Rip Curl Pro events.
With the World Surf League in town, there are countless events, gig nights, parties, signings, meet and greets, and other events that come alongside this flagship event. We'll keep you in the loop with any opportunities we hear about to mingle with surfing royalty.
4 x 1 hour yoga classes
Wind down and stretch out 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.
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.
Unlimited board and wetsuit use 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.
