We had a surf lesson with Black Dog last week and loved it! Our instructors, Dom and Brodie were great fun and taught us really well. By the end we were both standing up and we had loads of fun in the process! The waves died off towards the end but it still still good. Definitely make sure you take... More

Great fun, staff friendly and accommodating and let us book last minute on the drive from coffs harbour despite not knowing if we would make it. Only downer was the surf wasn't great that day. We still both got a few waves though and their technique to stand up was much easier than we'd learnt previously. Tip: Put lots of... More

I felt compelled to leave a review on this site after my experience with this surf shop. I had previously spent 3 days at another surfing school up in Noosa Heads where I had very limited success surfing on identical boards in nearly identical conditions - the difference? The teaching method and instruction at Black Dog. The way they teach... More

If you're in Byron Bay you need to stop by Black Dog Surfing. They give great group lessons and have plenty of boards and wetsuits to rent once you're up and on your way. I had a great refresher lesson with them and then rented a board and wetsuit throughout the week. Even if you don't surf you need to... More

My friend and I had a private surfing lesson with Dean at Black Dog surfing school and it was, hands down, an amazing experience. We had booked in advance but weren't able to do the lesson the day we had scheduled due to the low tide. We went along that day anyway and spoke to Tam (who is lovely and... More

Awesome instructors. Highly skilled and passionate about what they do. I've seen how they operate during busy seasons and they offer a quality service throughout. With their top class coaching, equipment and personalised coach to student ratios, these guys are well worth looking up if your looking to surf in Byron Bay.

A group 6 of us (all ages) had never surfed before, and so took the opportunity to try our luck whilst in Byron Bay. Thanks to some great reviews in Tripadvisor, we choose Black Dog Surfing, and were not disappointed. When we arrived at the store, the young lady (I'm sorry, I forgot your name) was very friendly and welcoming,... More
