Waves surf school is by far my favourite experience in Australia so far, all the staff are really friendly and great at what they do, you get so much help and encouragement in the water, and with it not being a massive group you learn loads in a week!! The accomodation was great and clean, the food was lovely with... More

This is has been the most disgusting excuse for a business I have ever experienced. Never before have I experienced such utter lack of ability on behalf of every staff member I encountered during my time with them. Questions are answered differently by every staff member. Confirmation of my trip was not provided until less than 24 hours before leaving,... More

YOU HAVE TO GO TO WAVES SURF CAMP! My friend and I spent 5 days at the Waves surf camp and it was just magical. The place is just incredible, the nature is magnificent and the beaches we surfed at were just some of the most beautiful beaches I've seen and what made it special; they were uncrowded. The surf...

I've just got back from the 5 day surf camp! I cannot praise the trip, people, surf instructors and hospitality enough! We were welcomed from day 1 by Eric and Deano and laughed the entire 5 days! The lessons were thorough but without wasting time on the beach! We had group support but also individual tuition as Eric appreciated everyone... More

We booked a one day surfing lesson with Waves Surf School on the 28th January. In the leaflet, we were promised 4.5 hours of tuition, a BBQ and that we would be taken to a beach with the best waves, according to the weather conditions. Unfortunately, this was not what we received on the day itself. We were picked up... More

During my time in Australia this will be the experience that i will remember for ever. the beaches and the whole nature around seal rocks where beautiful, with glowing sand and a pack of dolphins swimming next to us. I went on the 5 day surf camp and it made me fall in love with surfing. The instructors where really... More

Just came back from a great experience; randomly picked Waves to go on a surfing weekend. The food was plentifull and tasty, bedrooms and sanitary facilities were clean, more than good enough for youngsters anyway. The surfing was organised well; enough help and tips in and out of the water, but no worries if you'd had enough, you could just... More

Really nice trip and good surf lessons. I really liked the atmosphere and the area was good. Nice food as well. Could have been better organized - we waisted some time waiting for the surf instructors to get ready

I went surfing with Waves this past week and it was truly a well worth surf lesson! "Deno", the surf instructor was very funny and a typical local australian surfer! He was a bit late in the morning for the pick up, but this was probably due to traffic, and made up for it with the fun we had and... More
