Building Crew

Building a hostel from scratch is not the easiest job, but it is so rewarding once you’ve finally put up the last tent, finished building the skate ramp and connected all the right electrics. Do you like to get your hands dirty? And surf the sickest pre or after season waves? Then apply for the build up/down crew!

Build up: April & May
Build down: September

Build down Crew
