"Come and have a beer" was the most said thing by everyone I met while staying here in May 2014.. Ive been coming for a while now, and the friendliness of the people who choose to stay here is what keeps me coming back. I don't know whether its the early morning surf lessons, God moments on the water on... More

Best surf instructor. It wasn't just me that appreciated how helpful he was. Everyone in my group, and many in the other groups that I spoke to were all very impressed with how much passion he had for his job and for teaching everyone the basic knowledge of surfing. We really enjoyed our stay at Spot X. Enough to book... More

Being a beach lover myself, I knew I was going to love this place, but nothing prepared me for the stunning views, fun yet relaxed atmosphere and most importantly the waterfront rooms!

Well, where to start? Right from the first minute of arriving at Spot X surf camp through to the sad goodbye at the end, I felt like I was part of the MoJo team! The staff at the camp were so inviting, friendly & totally devoted to the surf lifestyle. There was nothing too big or too small that they... More

What a sensational location,right on the beach, great for early morning jog and of course Surfing! We had a really great time. The Accommodation in the cabins was basic but clean and comfortable,we didn't expect a TV !..nice to sit on our own private deck and take in the view. Meals were great, very homestyle and plenty to eat.

This place is stunning!! You literally wake up and then you're on the beach.. There is no stuffing around with the surf lessons, you meet in the morning, run through what you're going to do, grab a board and walk right down to the beach and into the water. Our instructor, Carl, was amazing and did everything possible to try... More

Some friends and I recently spent 6 days at the Spot X Mojo Surf camp. Such a beautiful and secluded location. We spent 4 days with the Mojo Crew learning to surf which was an incredible experience. Accommodation and food was of very good quality and we ended the week with a 70's themed festival with loads of local musicians.... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful places in Australia. It hasn't been over run by tourists yet and that is it's biggest selling point, you feel like you are the only there at time. Great accommodation, great staff! A must stop for any trip up the East Coast!

Stunning setting in which to learn how to surf. Classes vary in size, as do instructor styles, but everyone is friendly and helpful, with loads of people staying on for longer. Party atmosphere if you want it, or more chilled waterfront chalets. Unfortunately, on my stay I learned that surfing isn't for everyone....but I definitely recommend trying it! http://www.tntmagazine.com/travel/travel-advice/a-surf-virgins-experience-surf-school-on-the-australian-coast
