Australia and surfing go together and well as a BBQ and a cold beer – so its no wonder there are so many Australia surf camps!
One of the hidden gems though has to be this Yamba Surf Camp – based in the sleepy town of Yamba in Northern New South Wales, just south of the famous Byron Bay.
In fact Yamba is often described as what Byron was like 30 years ago in its prime.
Quiet vibes, empty beaches and uncrowded lineups – it’s the perfect place to slow down the pace and learn to surf!
And the Yamba surf camp is surrounded by a huge array of incredible surf spots too – from beginner beach breaks perfect for tuning your skills to reeling point breaks for those who want something much more challenging.
Your base will be the famous Yamba YHa, run by Shane and Justin who are good friends with the Stoked Surf Adventures team so we know they’ll take good care of you!
Just a short walk from the beach you wont be far from the waves and when you’re not busy in the water the rooftop bar and hot tubs are the perfect places to chill out and meet some new travel buddies.
With all your surf gear included, professional coaching from accredited, experienced local surfers this has everything you need for the perfect Australia surf camp experience without the crowds.
