Where are you located?
9 Barclay Drive, Casuarina NSW which is 15 minutes south of Gold Coast Airport and 30 minutes north of Byron Bay.
What levels do you cater for?
School Holiday Camps cater for a wide variety of ability levels - from surfers who have just started trimming down the line, through to surfers performing committed manoeuvres.
Our main requirement is that surfers can paddle out the back and catch waves without any assistance from a coach in the water. This allows the coaches to get footage which can then be reviewed during video analysis sessions.
If your son or daughter is still in the whitewater and riding foam boards, this will not be suitable for them.
What ages can attend?
School Holiday Camps are suitable for 12 to 17 year old surfers but we also offer Micro Grom Camps for surfers aged 12 years and under.
Where do surfing sessions run?
Our coaches will always try to find the most suitable waves for coaching on the Tweed Coast which has plenty of options for different wind and swell directions.
Sessions generally run at Casuarina, Cabarita, Kingscliff or Hastings Point but we can also access Duranbah, Snapper Rocks and Kirra.
What happens if there's no surf?
If we're not confident that conditions will allow us to get coaching outcomes, you will receive a full credit to reschedule for another camp within the next 12 months.
Do surfers need to bring a board?
Yes, we strongly recommend surfers bring their own surfboard as we cannot guarantee that we will have a suitable option in our demo quiver.
What is the coach to surfer ratio?
We have a 1:6 ratio to ensure surfers get plenty of time with their coach.
What qualifications do your coaches have?
All of our coaches are Surfing Australia Accredited Surf Coaches and hold a current ocean rescue award, first aid certificate and Working With Children Check.
Where do surfers stay at night and what do they do?
At the end of each coaching day, our coaches hand surfers over to our chaperone team who supervise the group until the following morning.
Evening activites include ping pong, basketball, board games and movie nights but we also try to give surfers extra time on the skate ramps and trampolines.
Our bunk rooms sleep 4 surfers per room and boys and girls are strcitly kept seperate.
When do kids arrive and what flights should we book?
Check-in is available from 4:00pm the day before the camp so surfers can get settled and ready for an early start the following morning.
The camp will finish at 3:00pm on the last day so flights from 4:30pm onwards are recommended but earlier departures can be arranged if required.
Do you offer airpor transfers?
Yes, we can arrange for surfers to be collected from the airport and dropped back at the end of the camp.
We already have accommodation, can my grom just do coaching?
Our camps are all-inclusive packages but we also offer School Holiday Sessions for surfers who would prefer to come and go each day.
Do you provide all meals and can you cater for dietary requirements?
Our catering team provide 3 healthy, nutritious meals each day and can cater for any dietary requirements.
