Dom and Stu were great instructors and got me, a 52 year old first timer standing up and surfing...lots of times!!! They were so good at what they do that they made for a totally fun and care-free experience...exactly how... More

We went for the beginner surf lessons with Black Dog surfing. We couldn't find the place initially as our GPS send us all the way to the other end of Byron. The lady of Black Dog was super nice and the instructors waited for us patiently even though we were 15 minutes late. Their explanations were very clear and they... More

The teachers were friendly and, having surfed before, they let me do things at my own pace and gave me tips on how to improve, which I really appreciated. It was the first time I managed to ride a wave all the... More

These guys are so passionate and friendly about giving you a great surf experience in Byron. With simple and fundamental coaching were ALL standing up during the first lesson, and most of us on the first couple of trys. The equipment is high quality, and they supply everything. It all runs on time and with a smile. We were taken... More

I was very nervous but they made me feel totally comfortable by being friendly and laughing. Great three hour learning experience and even signed up for another day! Very safety conscious and really cared about the six of us surfing.

These guys are very good teachers - patient, fun, careful, encouraging and very helpful. I did a session with Dom and Stu, so good I went back for a 2nd. My partner did a lesson with another firm a couple of years back, but said BD was way better, and he was also on his feet in no time. Shop... More
