When I booked my trip to Australia, I decided to book the 4 weeks development course at Australian Surf Tours. I arrived and I immediately felt comfortable in the beautiful small town called Thirroul. The motel where you’ll stay is perfect, it has nice rooms (with comfortable beds, very important haha) and a big common room where you can chill, play pingpong or watch netflix. The motel is superclose to the beach, so you can easily go there to see the sunrise in the morning or for a walk on the beach in the evening.
About the surfing, I loved it already the first day. The coaches are full of energy and can’t wait to teach you how to surf and most importantly how to live as a surfer. After my 4 weeks I decided to extend for 4 more weeks and I do not regret at all.
Next to the surfing, you also go on adventures during the week. Visit some waterfalls, jumping of cliffs and visit Wollongong to party!
In the end I learned how to catch my own waves, start turning and most of all how to enjoy life to the fullest with the most amazing and relaxed people around you.
I can’t wait to go back!
