LEAVE your boots at the door and feel the sand between your toes when you visit the Muster Surf Club this year.

The Muster Surf Club, a creation of Bribie Islanders Gabrielle and Corey Passlow, is open for business for the first time this year as the campsite offers a seachange for those enjoying a camping treechange.

It took the beach-loving couple a well-planned week to arrange their beachy Muster home.

Corey said he and his wife were regulars at their surf club and came up with the idea to create a coastal home away from home two weeks ago as they roped off their campsite.

Gabrielle said the ideas to create a Muster Surf Club started flowing and, within a week, they had everything they needed, including custom signage and bar furniture.

The authentic seaside feel was made complete with two cubic metres of sand, beach flags, warning signs, the club's own stubby coolers and surfing memorabilia that includes photos of a younger Corey in action on the beach.

"Corey gets to re-live his youth," Gabrielle said.

The hypothetical swimmer will also be in safe hands with a lifesaver on watch and a shark alarm in operation.

The feature of the club is an open-faced shipping container lined with tropical scenery that opens to a covered, sandy beer garden.

Gabrielle said the campsite was family friendly and visitors could bring a beer, have a seat and watch surfing movies during the evening.

She said the hard-to-miss humour behind the club was thought up over several drinks and plans for the 2014 Muster Surf Club included a surf tower.
