Learn to surf at Spot X in Australia


So I was lucky enough to spend some time at Spot X Surf Camp which is run by Mojo Surf. Having beach access directly from the camp is what makes this place so special. This place caters for everyone. If you are just after beach front accommodation, beginner learn to surf lessons or you want to join their ever popular surf academy, Mojo Surf Camp has it all. The surf academy is an awesome concept where you live in the camp for up to three months and you can even complete your surf coaching accreditation at the end of it. You get video analysis, fitness training, surf theory and endless hours surfing.

You can choose to stay in a Teepee

Getting There:
Spot X is located around 30 minutes north of Coffs Harbour on the New South Wales coast of Australia. You can get there by driving or public bus with Greyhound or Premier. You just get off at Woolgoolga and the team from Mojo will pick you up. I went with Contiki on their trips which stays there. You can go with Contiki from Sydney all the way up to Cairns and also stopping off at Byron Bay and Noosa as well. Quite a few surfing options as well as awesome adventure and making so many new friends.

When you choose surf academy, beginner surf lessons or if you arrive with Contiki like I did, all of your meals are included. The breakfast is Continental Style with cereals and toast. Lunch is a mixture but usually there are wraps or rolls to make sandwiches. Dinner is always a variety and there is always plenty of food to refuel you after surfing all day.

A Pro Surfer Boosting High

Spot X offers quite a variety of accommodation. From the Tipi's shown above to water front cabins, there is something for everyone. There are powered sites if you have your own van, campsites, or the converted container ships are great re-purpose built rooms.

Surf lessons for beginners are the most popular at Mojo Surf

Other Activities:
When you have finished your surf lessons you can do some of the other activities that they offer. There is kayaking, ocean rafting, stand up paddle boarding, slip and slide, volleyball, and kangaroo golf. Kangaroo golf is at the local golf club where the driving range has hundreds of kangaroos on it. Nothing more Australian than that! There is huge TV's in a cinema style room as well as my favourite thing, the camp fire! So you can see, there is plenty to experience even if you don't want to do surf lessons and just do there stay packages.

Overall my review of this place is super positive. The accommodation might be pretty basic, but it is comfortable and the location is killer. It really is the positive vibe of the place that sucks you in and it is no wonder many people end up staying for 3 months or longer.
