My friends and I booked a private surf lesson in the afternoon. The instructors were super friendly and chill and we had an amazing time in the water. Definitely recommend.

Had a great afternoon first time surflesson with a group of 6, the max size they do, which i liked. The lady in the shop, were we started, was enthusiastic for us to start, and gave us all the equipment. Our surf instructor Stu took the time to explain the basics on the beach and after we spend most time... More

As a total novice (who is generally lacking in coordination!), I was a little dubious about surfing, but decided to give it a go. It was incredibly good value for money (just $60 for a 3.5 hour session with all kit included) and a lot of fun. There were only 3 of us in the group and our instructor, Stu,... More

Three days of lessons for the girls and they have moved on from able to stand to catching their own waves, using a small board and carving turns. A very patient teacher (thanks Stu) has their confidence much higher. Been very impressed with their progress. Middle of winter is still beautiful up here.

Unlike some other surfing companies, Black Dog has a license in Byron bay so we could surf litterally 2 minutes away from their shop which was great. We have had a 3h30 introductory session. Dominique was a great coach, he made us feel very comfortable, found the perfect balance between security instructions, technique and fun.

Thanks to Dominique who was really nice and available, il fotografo Italiano who managed to take lots of amazing pics, and the... More
