Live out your dreams and discover a new way of life by joining one of our Surf Development Courses.  Enjoy an endless Summer surfing around the globe and be sure you have the skills to enjoy it prope...

The AST surf development courses are all about helping you live out your fantasies and develop your skills as a surfer all the while giving you the opportunity to live on the beach in a real Aussie surf town and enjoy life as it should be.

There is a good reason why our Surf Development Course’s are becoming so popular!  We focus on bringing you and other like-minded young travellers together in a stunningly beautiful and wave rich region of Australia, and immerse you straight into the Australian beach lifestyle!!

Australian Surf Tours prides itself on providing you with much more than just a surf camp.  We provide a complete experience that you won’t forget for a lifetime.  You’ll be wanting to come back time and time again once you leave…as many of our guests do!
Your accommodation, known as ‘The Surf Lodge’ is situated right on the beach in a small beach-side town called Thirroul.  Once you are here, you are only an hour away from central Sydney, and you’ll be staying in the most comfortable surf camp accommodation in Australia.  The Surf Lodge offers you the option of shared (max of 3 per room) or private accommodation for the duration of your stay.  We have communal kitchen and lounge areas which have been purpose built for your comfort, and you are only seconds from the surf and the town centre, where you’ll find a wealth of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops to indulge in.

The waves on the south coast of NSW (where you will be staying) are some of the best waves on the east coast of Australia.  The water is crystal clear and beautifully warm almost all year around (20℃+), and the crowds in the water are almost non-existent!

Our surf coaches and trip leaders are some of the most experienced and easy-going surfers you will ever meet.  And we guarantee you will leave our Surf Development Program’s with the skills and experience in the surf you never thought possible!

During your stay with us, you will have access to daily coaching sessions; video analysis; strength and mobility classes; breath enhancement training; yoga session on the beach; streetboardz training sessions…and much more!  And if you still have some energy remaining in the evenings, we have a licensed bar and restaurant on site which offers some of the best food and cocktails in the region.

Here at Australian Surf Tours, we are energized by the ocean and the lifestyle that surfing brings, and we are super excited to pass on our knowledge, energy and experiences to you as our guests.
