Where should a beginner surfer study abroad?« on: October 21 2005 22:10:00 »
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a beginner surfer from Maryland, USA. I am planning to study abroad in Austrailia and I was wondering where the best location is for great surfing close to a good University. If you could please help me out I would really appreciate any suggestions.

hi sarah, i am from Australia and study at the UNiversity of New South wales in Sydney. I'd say that either this uni, or Sydney University are good picks for a place to study and get good surf. Here you can live right by the beach, surf everyday, get to uni easily and still have the city life. Or there is griffith on the gold coast which is also a good spot for surfing, a little warmer and some good spots for beginners. So there is a few good option to study where you can still ger plenty of waves.

Google, Mazatlan, University.
Tech de Monterrey in Mazatlan Mexico. Study Spanish. Learn about Mexico, history of Central America, the Aztecs, Go on field trips to see the Mayan ruins road trips with all the surfers studying there and explore Mexico. The surf in Mexico is incredible, the coast is wide open and its WARM!! Just go to Mazatlan.com.mx and click on surfing.

fellow australian surfer (s). My name is Dominic. I live in Santa Cruz, California. One of the finest surfspots on the Western United States Coast. I might like to travel to Australia the summer 2006. But, I need to travel on the cheap. Where in Australia. Maybe we can work out a surf/student exchange deal. I'm nearly 18 years old. Maybe I could stay at your home with your family for 3 or 4 weeks. Then you could stay here with my family in Santa Cruz for 3 or 4 weeks. Best surf here December through March, but good swell and fun alot of other times too. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

It's alright dude.. gets real cold and waves aren't too flash until around Easter. Don't get me wrong, still an awesome spot, there are just better ones around.
As people have mentioned, you've got 'Gong, Sydney, UQ (Brisbane) Griffith.. just look em up ;)
