GISS Surf Camp with Waves Surf School is designed to allow students to bond as a year group, whilst enjoying a true Aussie style beach adventure.

    Camps are held in the Pacific Palms area, famous for beaches such as Seal Rocks, Boomerang and Blueys Beach. This region offers a range of surf beaches, that work in different wind and swell conditions - so no matter what the weather, we are guaranteed to be able to surf.

    Nestled amongst the Booti Booti National Park, accomodation is cabin style with bunk beds, accommodating 3-5 students each. The Cabins are a 2 minute walk from Elizabeth Beach.

    Delicious, healthy meals are on the menu all week. Breakfast, beach lunches & hearty dinners.
    We cater for Vegetarians, Gluten intolerant, Lactose Intolerant diets.

    Open to all levels, from first time groms to gnarly carvers, kids will come home with a bag of new skills. Lessons will be given on the beach, in the waves (and possibly some days at the skatepark).

Such a fun way to spend the holidays- my daughter has done 2 camps now and has had a ball. The Waves crew have such positive energy and I think really bring out the best in the kids.

My son had an awesome experience and was super happy after a fun day out surfing with like-minded kids. What do you want more for them than being out in nature and enjoy themselves!

Highly recommend Waves Surf School for kids. My son loves the holidays camps. We’ve returned a few times. He was a reluctant surfer at the start and now very confident on his board.
