You can stay at Surfaris Surf Camp for as long as you like. Five days is one of the most popular lengths of time.

The trips are all inclusive of transport, accommodation, meals, and surf gear and surf lessons and there are no extras. Accommodation is at Surfaris Central, adjacent to the Hat Head National Park, three kilometres north of the surf village of Crescent Head (home of the Crescent Head Surf Reserve), half way between Sydney and Byron Bay. Tariffs are based on four or six bed dormitory accommodation and upgrades to twins or doubles with en suites are possible.
