Overview

    The surfbus is run by two of Bondi’s finest qualified surf coaches. These epic surfers take groups of groms on Day Surfaris around Sydney's Surf Breaks. With the freedom to move and select beaches, these trips ensure kids are able to surf in the best conditions available on the day. They'll come back from a thrilling day of fun activities with their friends and useful beach knowledge that'll benefit each child forever. The SURFING SAFARI'S are designed for intermediate* and above groms. With two instructors on hand at all times, the group will be split up according to surf levels.

    WHERE WE GO
    Each day the surf conditions are changing and every beach is different. We will have researched prior to the day and figure out which beach will best suit the day.

    - When we arrive at location – stretch/look over surf conditions and go over all safety protocols.

    HOW TO DEFINE INTERMEDIATE
    We’ll be there to assist every kid with improving their surfing ability. However, we are unable to take brand new beginners who have never been on a board before. We ask that your child is:
    - Relatively confident in the surf
    - Are able to control their board and have the ability to paddle by themselves.

    If your child is interested in the Surfbus experience but is a beginner, we also offer private surf lessons for children of all experience levels.

Such a fun camp for groms who enjoy waves - always a different location, so kids can explore other breaks, not just their home hoods! Positive energy throughout, big recommendation!

The day trip was not over that I received a call from my son telling me to book him for the following day because he had a great time … I guess this sums it up.
