Hot Off The Press!! All Macaronis Resort Guest Packages are now HALF PRICE for a limited time only, for stays until March 31st, 2021 – Limited Spots!

Intermediate Surf Coaching Clinics –  Jan 15th – Feb 26th, Year 2021 (Year 2022 dates also available!)

If you’d like to improve your technique to surf with more precision and style, then you’ve come to the right place!

Our Intermediate Surf Coaching Clinics are designed to take your surfing to the next level. When you combine one of the world’s most mechanical waves with a proven coaching system in uncrowded perfect conditions, the progression you can make as a surfer has been proven to be remarkable.

Clarke who attended our 2020 Clinics described it perfectly “I’ve improved my surfing more in 7 days than the last couple of years.”

Our surf coaching clinics are designed with your progression and enjoyment in mind, offered in a relaxed atmosphere to develop your physical and mental abilities while also having a great time!

Year 2021 will be our fourth year running our surf coaching clinics, with some guests returning to take part two or three times over the years. For 2021 we’re limiting spots to a maximum of eight surfers per surf coach, as per ISA recommendations.

COVID-19 Update: We’ve updated our T&C’s to allow changes to be made to your booking up to 14 days before trip commencement. This means you can book and if you run into any COVID-19 related travel complications, then you can cancel up to 14 days before commencement and keep your payment in credit for a future booking.

Our 2021 Surf Coaching Clinics will be held over a total of 6 weeks with a 1-week duration per clinic. During the surf coaching sessions, surfers will be split up to surf at Macaronis and to visit the surrounding breaks aboard our high-speed aluminium Catamaran, the Surfalot.

Each participant will enjoy their own private room with queen or twin beds, and you can bring along your partner, or the whole family if you’d like to. Regular resort services, facilities, and activities are available to keep everybody entertained and having a great time with exciting things to do.
