Just finished a weekender surfing it up. Ben, Sandra and the team put on a great show. Awesome waves, perfect food and great company. Highly recommended.


What a week!
So enjoyed my 5 days at Surfaris. Had surfed only twice before, thought I would give it another go while in Australia. Chose Surfaris as it was recommended and has been around for over 20 years. These guys know what they are doing. Up early in the morning out all day and surfing at a variety of spots. The weeks conditions were perfect. My best memory was endless right handers (surf jargon I learnt !!!!!) at BigHill.

All the equipment is quality, food is excellent and accommodation was fantastic. I recommend Surfaris to anybody who wants to learn to surf.

Surfaris is the best surf camp I have attended and this is my second time doing a 5 day trip here. Why I love Surfaris 1) Crescent Head has the best waves in Australia (that I've surfed) 2) Affordable camp, unlike many others 3) Great surf instructors 4) Delicious meals 5) The beaches around here are beautiful 6) There are so many dolphins here, you often get to surf with them!

Awesome place to stay!! First thing you can tell once you arrive is how friendly and helpful staff is working in Surfaris. All the areas are clean and tidy. We've stayed two couples for 6 days and one day has been better than the other one. I fully recommend this place regardless you come alone, with friends, family... We are looking forward to come back.


All round great experience!


Ben and Sandra,
I just wanted to drop you a quick line and thank you and the team for a brilliant weekend and experience.
Ben you have a great way with making complete novice surfers like me feel very much at ease in the water, the way you approached teaching was perfect for me and I will never forget getting my first real wave at Point Plomer. Sandra’s cooking was terrific and very much appreciated after a session in the water.
You are both a credit to Surfaris Retreat, I hope to be back not to far down the track.
Keep up the good work, take care.
Paul Giles

These guys are really friendly ozzies, it was really beautiful and family like!!!!! 


The best surf camp I have ever been! We had the best time at Surfaris. Highly recommended!! Lovely serene atmosphere, well appointed rooms, everything is very clean and staff is really lovely. We’ll definitely come back!


This spot has now become our annual Christmas getaway. Aaahhhmazing staff! so welcoming and helpful. Family room is great with both fan and AC which is perfect for the summer months. Close enough to town to pop in each morning for coffee but far enough away to avoid the crowd. Communal kitchen and cooking facilities, huge outdoor pool and heaps of space for the kids to ride their bikes around giving parents a break. Can't wait for our next visit! Did I mention they have a pizza oven onsite ❤😁


We had the best week away in Creso with Benny and Sandra! I was going to organise a trip to Indo with the boys but ended up here, Benny took us to all the best spots and even managed to coach me through my very first barrel! Couldn't recommend the place more for a short trip away with friends surfing great uncrowded waves! I'll be back.


I see you all soon at Surfaris.  I miss your place already and the vego food,  I headed off to Byron Bay but it is to busy here and the surf spots are not as good.  Can I backpack for 2 nights before I start surfing again?


Had amazing weekend at Surfaris! Ben, Ben and JJ were excellent surf instructors and their local knowledge helped our group to find fun waves. We all improved and they were able to cater to beginner and intermediate surfers. Back at camp, we instantly felt relaxed when we arrived. Sandra and the others made us feel like family and cooked great food. Already thinking about the next trip. Thanks team for a special weekend
