3 days of fun on your surfboard
In this 3-day course, we will not only teach you the basics of surfing, but also some basic tricks. Day 1 will be all about catching, standing and surfing. You can then improve your skills on day 2. Learn how to paddle correctly, control your board and distribute your weight in order to change direction. On the final day, you can step up your game even more. You will practise tricks like the pop-up, back riding and turning frontside and backside on unbroken waves. We will also teach you the importance of wave selection, timing, surf safety, ocean awareness and surf etiquette.
Small groups to offer the best support
Your safety and fun are the number one priority. Each group will have 1 coach per 7 participants. You will get the personal attention you need to stand up and start surfing the waves in no time.
Strict safety and quality standards (ASI approved)

Blackdog Surf School is a family run business. Their goal is to create a smile on your face when you ride your surfboard.
Byron Bay beaches
The Blackdog surf coaches are surfing experts. They assess surfing conditions and select the best beaches for your level. At The Pass you will find the best Learn-To-Surf waves in Australia. The waves are considered world-class and make the Pass one of Australia's top surf beaches. The Fisherman’s Lookout is a wooden structure with a platform at the top. From the platform, you can admire the crowds of surfers, fish, dolphins, and sometimes whales. Tallow Beach stretches out south, 6.5 km from Cosy Corner to Broken Head. It is one of the most photographed beaches on the Australian east coast. You might even spot dolphins there!
