Seeing you plan to do your trip with so much time I feel I would have really liked to have started from the area just north of the Victorian border.  It's supposed to be so much more beautiful south of Sydney. The surf is also supposed to be really something else also.  I reckon it's best to learn yourself and read a few books on surfing.
Taj Burrow has produced a really class book i've just been reading but it's good to feel in others peoples ideas and create your own.
