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

I would highly recommend this company and I was absolutely amazed that they got me standing up on that board and surfing! The staff at the shop are very friendly and the two instructors we had were not only friendly but hilarious, knowledgeable, patient and observant. One member of staff was better that the other but I won't name names.... More

I really had the best afternoon yesterday learning to surf! I had already paid for my lesson through Wicked travel but when I got to Byron Bay the weather wasn't great and to be honest I just couldn't be bothered to get out onto the waves! I am so pleased the guys at Black Dog Surfing changed my mind, don't... More

Had the best time ever here, everyone were so friendly and helpful. The instructors are very professional and encouraging, and had everyone in our group standing up in no time. Tam in the shop was probably the nicest person we have ever met, extra thanks to her, Stuart and Dom, who gave us so many good advices when we were... More

We had two experiences with the school, both great. Our kids had a private lesson (they’d never surfed before) with Simon and I jumped in one of the group lessons (6 others). The next day, bitten by the bug, we had another private lesson with Simon and my wife joined as well. I really can’t comment about other surf schools,... More
