Stayed a few nights here with a friend. Staff are great! Really friendly. Very sociable place and great teachers for surfing (it was our first time) and absolutely loved it! Photographer on board which you can buy after. Food's good, fire on and sing song. Winner!

I initially booked 3 days and 3 nights surf and stay at spot but was so blown away with my experience that I had to extend and ended up staying an extra month in the academy!

We've been travelling to Spot X since 2008. We are not surfers but caravaners. Being right on Arrawarra Beach gives us direct access to unlimited distance for morning and afternoon walks. The number of surfers has varied in numbers each time we visit which is for a 2 week period once or twice a year. The surfers come from all... More

Mojosurf spot x. The place NOT to be. Considering the money I spent, this was certainly one of my worst traveling experiences so far. Unfortunately I booked the 1 month Academy program; but I was so extremely dissatisfied with the tidyness of the so called "Academy house" (a proper name would be "Academy barrack"), I wanted to leave right away....
