Spot X
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Stayed here for 5 nights last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Was picked up from Sydney and dropped off in Byron Bay and both buses were reasonably new and had air con etc. My stay was amazing, we had surf lessons twice a day and the social aspect was good as well! The quality of teaching was good, we were in a smallish group and by half way through most people were standing and surfing well! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to surf in Australia, the teaching, accommodation and social side is all very good!

"Come and have a beer" was the most said thing by everyone I met while staying here in May 2014.. Ive been coming for a while now, and the friendliness of the people who choose to stay here is what keeps me coming back. I don't know whether its the early morning surf lessons, God moments on the water on paddleboards at first light watching Dolphins play around, or the sheer Aussie beauty of Kangaroos hopping all over the place, but something really brings out the best in people here. Awesome dudes and dudettes having a great time in the water - what could be more Aussie. I'll keep coming back. I feel like Im coming home every time. AUSSIE MUST DO!

Room Tip: Get a waterfront villa and pay a little extra to wake up to the rising sun off your balcony.

Best surf instructor. It wasn't just me that appreciated how helpful he was. Everyone in my group, and many in the other groups that I spoke to were all very impressed with how much passion he had for his job and for teaching everyone the basic knowledge of surfing. We really enjoyed our stay at Spot X. Enough to book a month long camp.
The whole program was very helpful to us. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a toilet. Especially for ladies.

Being a beach lover myself, I knew I was going to love this place, but nothing prepared me for the stunning views, fun yet relaxed atmosphere and most importantly the waterfront rooms! You literally walk outside and you are there!! Spot X is definitely a little piece of paradise, where you can swim all day, chill out listening to music while having a couple of drinks or get your surf on!! No matter what your skill level for surfing, the instructors are fantastic and thorough and I guarantee they will have you up on those boards. I did it and I am probably one of the most uncoordinated people I know! Thanks Spot X! Can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Pick a waterfront!! The tee pees look awesome as well!!

Well, where to start? Right from the first minute of arriving at Spot X surf camp through to the sad goodbye at the end, I felt like I was part of the MoJo team! The staff at the camp were so inviting, friendly & totally devoted to the surf lifestyle. There was nothing too big or too small that they would not help with (mind you the too big – was teaching me how to surf!!)

The location is a secret little secluded spot in a National park just far enough off the beaten track to be private and hidden but close enough to still be able to head into civilization for those all-important bottle-shop runs that the staff do every afternoon. So accommodating!! There is no bar on site, which means that the staff will actually drive you in to the town centre to pick-up supplies AND you save money not having to pay bar prices!!

The instructors were so informative when teaching us how to surf, not only did we come away from the camp being able to surf but we also learnt about the safety precautions, rips etc.. EVERYTHING involved with surfing and how surf is formed!!

Last but not least – I could not believe the quality of food! I was seriously blown away by the amount & variety of meals that were cooked for us each day! Everything was fresh, healthy & YUM!!

A definite must do when travelling the east coast/learning how to surf/ or for even the nature enthusiast; as the wildlife down at Spot X is in abundance!!

What a sensational location,right on the beach, great for early morning jog and of course Surfing! We had a really great time. The Accommodation in the cabins was basic but clean and comfortable,we didn't expect a TV !..nice to sit on our own private deck and take in the view. Meals were great, very homestyle and plenty to eat.
