In this part of Australia the water temperature varies from 18 ° to 24 ° + in summer. A 3.2 mm long wetsuit is enough in winter unless you are really cold; short wetsuits or even boardshort in summertime. In the mid seasons a 3.2mm long wetsuit is more than enough.
Surf booties are not necessary. For those who bring their own surfboard, a spare leash is always recommended. In the surrounding area there are several surf factories and surf shops really well stocked.
HOW TO GET THERE
The surfcamp is easily accessible by train directly from Sydney International Airport or Central Station city center. The train trip is highly recommended because it's cheap (less than $ 10 per way), fast (less than an hour and a half) and it offers really cool views.
Alternatively, driving a car, from south Sydney for an hour and a half. The surfhouse has a big parking.
