No gap year is complete without learning to surf on the East Coast of Australia.

Live in a beachside cabin in Gerroa and learn to cut waves with other backpackers on this fantastic 5 day surf camp. This location is perfect for beginners and you will find the best waves to help you progress from beginner to advanced level much quicker than you ever thought possible.  

With the assistance of the all-Australian experienced instructors, you'll be standing up, paddling and taking the drop in no time!
