My two teenage daughters, very novice surfers, had an afternoon with Black Dog Surfing. All the instructors and staff where great, very friendly and helpful. Both girls loved the surfing and managed to stand pretty quickly. The instructors where very involved and made sure everyone had a great, and safe, time. Will definitely go back to Black Dog next time... More

... I did stand up, and more than once during the beginners surf lesson! What better feeling than surfing the wave first time on a board! Stuart & Dom are tops!

We did a three days surf course and enjoyed every minute. The coaches were both great guys and really good teachers. Had lots of fun during this course and would absolutely do it again!

So I never thought I could surf, I'm pretty tall, lack balance and don't have the typical surfing body! However these guys are great! Constant advice and encouragement. There might be cheaper surfing lessons in Byron but don't waste your time and money - go with the black dog!

Been here twice in the last 6 months and these guys are so awesome! I was having lessons at somewhere closer to Brisbane and just tried them as I happened to be in Byron and they were so amazing they put my other surf lessons to shame, i'd been struggling to stand up after 10 lessons and they got me...

Black Dog Surfing is a fantastic surf lesson business that offers more bang for your buck than other surf schools I've tried. It's all in the detail. Organising my first surf lesson was easy with Tam! She was friendly, upbeat, and rang me to confirm the surf conditions were going to be good the day before. Why is this important?... More

Just did two days of surfing with Dom and Stew and it was reaaally nice! Black Dog Surfing is the cheapest surf school in Byron Bay. They're the best surf instructors! You're still reading my comment? What are you doing? Just go booking a surf trip with them!!

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
