This Byron surf experience will stay with you for a lifetime! We only work with the best beaches, like 'The Pass': the beach with the best Learn-To-Surf waves in Australia. Or Tallow Beach, famous for its idyllic scenery and dolphin sightings! Before every lesson, we assess the surf conditions, ensuring we take you to the best location that suits your level of surfing. Struggling to stand? No problem! If you don't stand up on your first lesson, you can come again for free! This way you can learn how to surf at your own pace. 


What to expect
You will learn the basic surfing techniques you need to be able to stand up on your board. The coaches will teach you a tecnique that makes getting up very easy! If you're a quick learner, you can take it to the next level and try out some steering techniques on your board. 


High safety standards and small groups
The surf lessons are of the highest quality. Your safety and fun are the number one priority. There is always 1 instructor to every 7 students, so every participant gets plenty of help and attention. You will be provided with the personal attention you need to stand up and start surfing the waves in no time. Blackdog Surf School is an ASI approved surf school. The school meets and exceeds stringent safety and quality standards. All the coaches are qualified lifeguards with many years of coaching experience. They all hold a Level 1 Surfing Coach Accreditation, Bronze Medallion and Senior 1st Aid Certificates.

Professional pictures (optional)
To make your memories last forever, a professional photographer will capture your fun surfing moments during lesson time (at additional cost). After the lessons everyone is brought back to the shop, in the heart of Byron Bay. Here you can view the photos and enjoy a light snack.
