I went down to spot x for the festival and had the most rad time ever. All the staff are super friendly, and great surf instructors. The surfing and facilities were epic, and they do one hell of a good job of holding a festival! I would recommend this camp to locals and backpackers for loads of fun, laid back... More

This is a great place to stay and learn to surf! As soon as you arrive you can feel the sense of community which is just great. Surf lessons are really good and you can stay as long as you feel you need. We stayed in tepees - essentially glamping as they had electricity too and really enjoyed the stay

I wasn't planning on going to Spot X but I was told it's an absolute must so I stopped in for a night and a surf the next day but it was a real shame it was only one day because I had the best night and day here! It really is a little secluded piece of paradise in the... More

I stayed at Spot X for a few weeks in March and loved my stay. One of the few backpacker places you can actually meet people who care about you beyond filling rooms. Great beginner and intermediate waves, a real community feel and awesome food - camp chef Gary is a legend! I think we had a different tasty meal... More

Had a lovely time at spot X. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, good surfing lessons, great meals. Dorms were just fine, although a little cold this time of year. The wifi is only available at the reception and you have to pay for it. Photos, activities and afternoon surfing also require extra payment. Nonetheless, I stayed for three days and really... More

Had a lot of fun at this location! We stayed for 3 days. We went at an off peak time so we got good beds and a nice room. We were offered a 2 hour surf lesson each morning with the option of paying an extra $100 each to get another surf lesson in the afternoon and a separate activity... More

Thanks for sharing your experience and giving Kate a rap, she is great and will be stoked she got a mention. Its cool you took advantage of the $99 pack, the second lesson, the activitys and some merchandise make the pack great value and you get to experience a few other awesome things the camp offers outside our amazing surf...

I recently went surfing here with Mojo Surfers and unfortunately broke my wrist (obviously no one's fault!) but the way the staff dealt with it was terrible. When I first broke my wrist they seemed more concerned about the fact that I might have to cut off one of their wetsuits than the pain I was in. I missed my... More

Hi Genevieve, I have gone through our records to review the information that we have in regards to your accident. I have found an incident report that advises of the surf location, the time of incident, the first aide applied, the coach on duty and the recommended actions taken, which was a trip to Hospital. The incident happened on the... More

Spot X is such an amazing place. The location is unbeatable! Our cabin overlooked the water which was awesome to wake up to every day. Highlights were the campfires at night, the skydive that lands on the beach (definitely recommend!) and the water activities! Thank you to the amazing staff too for the incredible hospitality. Cheers!

Thanks for the feedback on the staff, they are awesome and try their best to make sure you have an incredible time. Cheers More

I visited Surf X for a few days in May, the weather was great with a pleasant 22-24 degree throughout the day, the staff were just fantastic on arrival and after the first night listening to some local artist and spending most night around the camp fire , I arrived in Paradise. The activities are just brilliant and this SPOT... More
