Black Dog is a great surf school with a fantastic atmosphere. The coaches are funny and friendly and most of all helpful. We brought visitors from SanDiego and they had the best time. The Pass is so beautiful and quiet, sea birds and dolphins. Black Dog will give you a surfing experience you'll never forget.❤️

Very proud to say I managed to catch my own wave and... More

We had such a great experience we booked a second private session. In session two we... More

Great little place to learn to surf. My boyfriend booked us in for 3 days of lessons. Never thought I'd be able to stand on my board on the first day but I did! Our instructor Stu was excellent, he was so knowledgeable and helpful. Tam was also super lovely. Didn't think it could get much better until dolphins were... More
