I was treated like gold at the surf house. I arrived late but was warmly welcomed and shown to my well appointed room and had a great conversation with my hosts. They took a genuine interest in me, and my progress traveling in Australia. I woke to find the kitchen spectacular with sunshine and my hosts eager to share breakfast get me in the water to try surfing. They put a surfboard and wetsuit at my disposal and even found time to get me started at the nearby beach (50m). Wiped out after 2 hours learning to read the waves and rise above them I recovered with an excellent latte in the kitchen and praise for my moderate surfing success. I also borrowed a bike and toured the nearby town and beaches. My visit was characterized by friendliness, encouragement, adventure and comfort. If this is a hostel, I'd take it over the Ritz anytime.
