surfariscelebrates 25 years of coaching!
With nearly twenty five years of successful surf lessons under our belt, no one else can teach you how to surf as quickly as we can. We are far from the beaten path, and that is just how we like it. Like others before us, we knew that the Crescent Head surf culture was special, decades before Australia recognised it as a national surfing reserve!
Surfaris was established in 1994. We first started traveling between Byron Bay and Sydney, teaching how to surf! After too many 780km trips back and forth to locations, we established ourselves permanently, in a surfer’s paradise, Crescent Head.
We are more than just some experienced surfers. We have taken the time to become accredited with the Academy of Surfing Instructors, which means we teach using the global standard of surfing. With our decades of teaching experience, we get you making the drop in from the shoulder and fading into the pocket like a rad world class surfer!
Well, maybe not a world class champion after the first lesson, but you’ll be having an epic time. Besides, the best surfer out there, is the one having the most fun.
Knowing everyone has the different times they are available for surfing, we have three camps available throughout the week. Yes, we have surf camp options for all seven days of the entire week! And if you don’t have a board or wetsuit, we can provide them for you free of charge!
If you have a busy week, you can choose The Short Escape. If you can add a Friday, choose The Weekender. But if you’re looking to cram as much surfing in as you can in an entire week, choose The Surf Till You Drop. You’ll start Monday, and surf … till you drop on Friday!
Doesn’t matter if you’re here for the Short Escape, or if you’ll be surfing all week. We provide a safe, clean environment to rest and relax in between surfing sessions. You’ll be staying in a bunk room with a maximum of three other surfers per room, while you’re at camp. And there’s no gender mixing, so there won’t be men and women in the same dorms. We also have an option to upgrade your stay to a private room. No worries!
During camp, we will be providing all of your meals, so you won’t have to worry about how you’re going to keep your muscles alive during your sessions. That’ll be our job. It’s your job to just think about surfing, be about surfing, and live a surfer’s life.
Give us a call and we can have a chat about getting you in the water and carving the waves in no time!
