Hire a surfboard from us and walk 10 minutes to Torquay Surf Beach or if you'd prefer to just look like a pro surfer, walk 2 minutes to the surf shop plaza where you'll find all the major surf brands. Everyone knows that backpackers love a bargain, and there's plenty to be found just around the corner at the Ripcurl and Quicksilver factory outlets! Just ask us where that little gem is.


Bells Beach is in located just 10 minutes' drive away from Torquay, in a national park area that contains some of the most beautiful walking tracks from Torquay to Bells Beach. Famous for the amazing surf and host to the famous Rip Curl Pro surfing competition.
