WHAT TO EXPECT
Catch and ride a wave like a pro! Join this amazing surf experience on Byron Bay's best beaches. Spend 2 days riding the waves and while we get action shots of you on the board to share with your friends on Facebook. Before every lesson, the surfing conditions are checked. We will take you to the best beach that suits your level. Don't worry if you're not confident on the board yet, this course is suitable for all levels. And what's more?! If you don't manage to stand up on your first lesson, you can come back for free!
Safe and fun surfing in a small group
Safety and fun are the key ingredients of this Byron Bay surfing experience. In every group, there will be 1 instructor per 7 students. That way you can get enough individual support to get up on the board and improve your surfing skills.
A professional photographer will take some action snaps during the lessons. You can check out your lucky shots and enjoy a light snack after the lesson when you get back to the Blackdog shop (in the centre of Byron Bay).
2 days of surfing fun
In this 2-day lesson, you will learn the basics of surfing step by step. On day 1, you will learn how to catch a wave, stand up on the board and surf.
