I arrived in Byron with no idea about which surf school was going to be best for my first surfing lessons, but saw online that Blackdog had great comments about the team - and that's really what's going to make a lesson work for me - a cool team who can teach the skills. It was the right decision. I... More

Had such a great time with the Blackdog Surfing team. The lessons were fun and relaxed and the instructors always had super simple and clear tips to help you improve. The whole team were friendly and welcoming and I couldn't recommend them more. Thanks Blackdog team - you made my trip to Byron extra special and I look forward to... More

Visited Byron Bay the other week and decided to do surfing lessons with my boyfriend, the staff here were great. I started to get stressed with myself for not picking it up very well and they took the time out to focus on me and help me become more confident, they also made sure everyone enjoyed the lesson and they...

I'll be honest: I had initially picked this school, not based on the excellent reviews, but because their mascot is an adorable surfing kelpie! I had taken surf lessons previously in Brazil, Nicaragua, and Vancouver Island, Canada, but had only managed to stand up a handful of times. I was amazed when, at the end of two days' worth of...

Decided on this surfing school based on the great reviews and the friendly staff. Smiles all round. Lots of fun and good humour. Great instructors, helpful tips to improve my surfing. Loved it so much, I kept going back for more! I highly recommend Blackdog Surfing.

Blackdog is THE choice for surf school! I did the 5 Day Ultimate Package and was over-the-top happy with the choice. I'd never surfed before my lessons with Blackdog, but stood on the board on my first try. My fifth lesson was a private one-on-one and I got lots of extra tips and fine-tuning feedback that I think really made... More

We love Black Dog surfing school- they are so friendly, welcoming organised and great teachers. We have been coming here since our son Max was about 8 (can't remember exactly) now he is almost 18- and it's always the same great crew with the same great attitude. Everyone has fun. Now we just hire a board and say hello. There... More

All the staff at Blackdog were very friendly and helpful. Our lesson was cancelled on the day of booking but the staff added a class the next morning to accommodate. We had a great lesson Danny was a lot of fun and very friendly and helpful. We could tell his first priority was safety which I was thankful for. Learnt... More

Very friendly staff, lots of "nice and easy" waves. It was a lot of fun to try surfing and because of their good teaching, you can easily manage to stand up after one lesson :)
