Australian Surf Tours: 14 Day Surf Camp (AST14)
Our Surf Camp is located in the centre of a small surfing village with access to supermarkets, pubs, bars, cafes, banks and a post office only 150m walk allowing our guests to live like a local in an amazing part of the world.. not be stuck out on an isolated Surf Camp somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
It is located only 1 1/4 hours South of central Sydney and 15 minutes North of Wollongong so gives guests the opportunity to eat out up in Sydney or Wollongong, visit the tourist attractions and feel free to do as they want of an evening so they can truly enjoy Australia. Wollongong is a University town with a vibrant mid-week nightlife!
We surf 3 amazing beaches facing different directions. This means we get perfect waves every day.. no other camp can offer that!
The rooms are beautifully renovated, bed are KING Singles and rooms have a maximum of 3 guests (theres no 6,10 or 15 bed dorms here). All rooms are serviced twice weekly, have TV's and ensuites. Also, there are in room cooking facitiltes and refridgerators so people can enjoy a mid night snack.
The Recreation rooms offers lounges, endless movies and surf movies, a pool table, piano and backs on to our Cafe/Bar.
The ammenities are amazing.. this is no ordinary hostel like Surf Camp!
The first 7 Days of the 14 day Surf Camp are the same as our 7 day Surf Camp.
Upon finishing the first week on Friday, our 14 day guests then have the weekend off classes giving them the opportunity to realx on the beach, take in the local are, go up to Sydney for some sight seeing or to party the weekend away or even to keep surfing using AST's boards and wetsuits at their leisure! As long as they are ready for Monday morning ready to surf again!
The Monday to Friday surf program for second week guests will include a similar timetable as the previous week but with emphasis changing in their surf lessons to working on improving the skills they learnt the first week, and starting to take bigger more critical waves. Guests can expect more video analysis focussing on individual weaknesses and strengths, turning the board and creating speed. They will also have as many day trips as are required so they can surf perfect unbroken waves as much as possible.
On the Wednesday or Thursday when the 7 day guests climbs Sublime Point, our 14 day guests will have the opportunity to visit Carrington Falls and take an afternoon hike in the rainforest.
Friday night will end with a free BBQ, presentation dinner and farewell party.
The weekend will be for chilling out or checking out!
