Back in November 2014, I decided to travel all the way form Canada to Sydney to learn how to surf. That was the sole reason of my trip. I had only a few days off but wanted to make the most out of them. I booked with Waves through an agency since I am afraid of the ocean (Canadian girl... More

I am really disappointed by Waves Surf School as they tried to move our day trip to another date (about a month after we booked) and then I never heard from them again. I wrote tons of e-mails and sms but never received any feedback. The worst part: I needed to pre-pay for the day trip and never received any... More

I had an amazing time on this camp and it is turkey and excellent way to learn. Unlike other surfing schools, You are given the equipment all day on camp, not just in the lesson so have the opportunity to practice. Really good value and superb instructors.

I am a local to Sydney, and as a surfer, an adult learner. The team and atmosphere at Waves Surf Camp, Seal Rocks was amazing. A real aussie bush adventure, with the staff and instructors determined that you have the time of your life, improve your surfing from what ever level you're at, and catch some magic waves, regardless of...

I decided to take a trip down to Australia from China over the Chinese New Year. The original plan was to surf up the north cost from Bondi to Byron Bay, but the second we landed at the Waves retreat at Seal Rock we just couldent move on, the place was too amazing! The second we got out of the... More

If you wanna learn to surf and have a good time with great people, Waves is the school you choose. I did the 4 day escape and couldnt be more satisfied with my stay. They might not be the biggest company, but they sure know what they do, and the staff is so friendly, funny and outgoing!! You will get... More

I just got back from a weekend away at Seal Rock! Best experience in Australia! I did not want to leave! I have only been surfing one other time years ago in Costa Rica and did not get the same attention that Ecca and Darren the instructors gave. They took their time and showed us the exact way to help... More

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
