Epic Surf Bus Reviews

Unforgettable experience with a lovely group! Great way to explore the East Coast and improve your surfing. I saw stunning beaches and lots of wildlife. Visiting the Wadjar Regional Indigenous Gallery was amazing. Sebastian was super friendly and helpful, everything on the surf camp Ausralia was well organised and the food was excellent.


Seb was absolutely incredible to do a tour with - he’s so knowledgeable about the East Coast. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to improve your surfing or have a go for the first time. I was a bit nervous at first to tackle big waves and now feel much more confident! It is also nice that the tour only allows for a few individuals at a time so you can create intimate memories with everyone on board. Would recommend to anyone and everyone when in Australia!


Had the best week with Seb and the crew! Got to discover the East Coast, surf at awesome locations, improve my surfing with video analysis and meet other solo travellers that have now become good friends. I loved the family vibes this tour created when cooking our meals together and working in teams to set up camp. Unforgettable experience, I definitely recommend it.
