I stayed at Spot X in September because I wanted to learn to surf and I definitely learnt enough and have since bought my own board. They teach you about Surf Etiquette and recognising conditions and rips, they will also get you standing up by the end of your first lesson. The staff were friendly and helpful and would get...

The Stanford psychology experiment by Zimbardo springs to mind.Staff are conforming to roles of authority but are abusing their "power" and being very rude. Lack of skills maybe as this is run by backpackers but there are ways of speaking to clients who are the business's bread and butter. Being in a academy you are in a grey area. Because...

Surf camp was amazing!! The surf lesson was so fun, the staff made you feel right at home. I definitely recommend everyone check it out! The storage container sleeping arrangement was so fun as well! The location was great, food and dancing was fun! The entire surf camp experience is a must if you come to Byron Bay! Yeeeewww!! 🤙🏻

There is a strange underlying atmosphere at the surf camp, with there being more staff than actual clients (backpackers). Accomodation was akin to basic hostel standards, as were the supplied meals. Nothing blew me away and was certainly not up to scratch for the price. My personal experience was made a little worse through the absence of working hot water...

I do a 5 day surf and stay and then extended! Probably my favourite thing along the east coast! If you enjoy surfing this is a must! It's better to book as a package as it can be expensive to add on extra days etc! Food is ace too

Did the 5 day surf and stay and extended a day. Loved it. Nice secluded location but minimal phone service unless your with Telstra. We stayed over Halloween and had such a good time with the events they put on.
