Surf Development Course – 12 Weeks

There’s something different about starting your life-long surfing adventure with Australian Surf Tours than starting it by yourself or with anyone else.

Australian Surf Tours is more than just a surf camp or surf school. We represent a culture, a lifestyle, connections between people and nature, people and the ocean and people with each other.

We are energised by the ocean and the lifestyle that surfing brings and we look to pass on that knowledge and energy through surfing programs that educate and empower our ‘students’ into the life the that they dream about.

Fun loving, healthy, easy-going, friendly and free.

Entertainment

As part of our weekly itinerary we take our guests somewhere fun one afternoon per week away from the surf. This could be on a hike up Sublime Point to take in some breathtaking scenery, an afternoon exploration of the Royal National Park, a visit to Macquarie pass and its famous waterfall jump rock or to the Eat Street markets in Wollongong.

This could be on a hike up Sublime Point to take in some breathtaking scenery, an afternoon exploration of the Royal National Park, a visit to Macquarie pass and its famous waterfall jump rock or to the Eat Street markets in Wollongong. There are amazing activities all around our Surf Camp that you can enjoy during the week with us or on the weekend on your own. There is amazing scuba diving, para-gliding at Stanwell Park, sky diving at North Beach and so many other things to do that you will probably have to stay a year to get through them all.

Location

We are located smack bang in the middle of a small surfing town called Thirroul.  The waves are epic and you will have more than 20 beaches to choose from when picking some waves to surf.  Surrounded by the Illawarra Escarpment and the Royal National Park, this little town is about as picturesque as you can get and has a vibrant surfing, music and art scene as it’s core.  There are plentiful cafe’s and bars, pubs and surf shops to enjoy and as many waves as you can handle and everything is within 2 minutes walk from our Beach Motel!

Finding Us
Thirroul is only an hour and 10 minutes south of Sydney Central or 1 hour South of the airport.  It is also on the Northern beaches of Wollongong which is a vivacious university town brimming with nightlife, shopping and amazing beaches.  Why does this matter?  If you are staying for 1, 2 or 3 months, being stuck out in the middle of nowhere can send you crazy and we certainly don’t want that.  We want you to enjoy your life as a surfer as we do.  Spend the weekends partying in Sydney or Wollongong, go sight seeing, eat out or surf some new beaches in your spare time and have the ease of staying in your own bed.  Thirroul has an express train station that will link you with the rest of the world and is a 3 minute walk from where you live.  You’re in Australia now, so enjoy it!
