SURF DEVELOPMENT – 4 WEEKS

AST’S SURF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

“Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life”  Confuscious

 

SURF DEVELOPMENT COURSE – 4 WEEKS – $3,400

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.

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.

The highlight of Australia for me!

“The last 4 weeks absolutely blew my mind! Thank you to all of the coaches at AST that helped me out – Sam; Jose…you guys rock! The food was amazing; the AST restaurant served the best food I’ve eaten in Australia; and the accommodation was luxurious when traveling as a backpacker! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn to surf whilst in this beautiful country.”

AST – the place to be!

“AST is the best place ever, since the first day I arrived I was already a part of the family here. I’ve never met so many friendly people. The surf lessons are really good and they help you a lot to improve yourself. Every Friday Lili makes some awesome pictures of everyone surfing. We went to beautiful waterfalls and did awesome hikes. The party’s are also really good here. The breakfast is the best, and after a long day of surfing you can sleep in a really good bed. Every Monday you can enjoy the BBQ in the restaurant with everyone from AST”
