During your time at our camp you will be totally focused on improving your technical skills, ocean experience, ocean awareness, fitness, and living the life of a surfer. We’ll challenge and coach you through various levels of your development and get you well on your way to becoming a surfer.

During the course we will prepare you to pass all qualifications including advanced resuscitation, open water rescue, advanced first aid, and your run swim run requirements. Besides the qualifications we’ll also show you how to be an effective attentive instructor, by providing up to 40 hours of practical experience. Once you are done with your stay we will as a standard drop you off in Sydney, but if you want to be dropped off in Byron Bay or Brisbane you can just inform us locally.
