~ The seaside city of Coffs Harbour is the major regional centre for the stretch of coast commonly referred to by locals as the "Coffs Coast". It encompasses a vast stretch of coastline starting in the north from Woolgoola and Coffs Harbour south to Nambucca and Scotts Head and west to the town of Bellingen and beyond to the Dorrigo National Park. Within this region you will find a range of fun outdoor activities which celebrate and highlight the local natural beauty. From bushwalking and four-wheel driving through the lush sub-tropical rainforests to fishing, diving, swimming, surfing or whale watching on the pristine waters of the Pacific Ocean, you will find the Coffs Coast is a lovely location for a seaside holiday. If you find yourself on a campervan rental holiday we strongly recommend you stop over night and explore.

Not only will your instructor provide you with the equipment you need but they will also provide you with invaluable knowledge about the surfing conditions and safety information you will need to know.
