Surf School Byron Bay

Welcome to Black Dog Surf School Byron Bay, the most personalised surf school in town! We offer the best ratio for a learn to surf group lesson in Byron Bay. We have one instructor to seven students and that’s why we can confidently guarantee that you will stand up on your first lesson or you can come again for free.

Surfing has been my way of life since I first stood up on a surf board at the age of 3. I am now so grateful that the team at BlackDog Surf School Byron Bay, has the opportunity to give back the pleasure surfing has given to me and all my staff, teaching learn to surf lessons on the beautiful beaches of Byron Bay.

Through my years of surfing experience in competing, judging and coaching, I have realised how beneficial it is for our students (future surfers), to have professional instructions. At BlackDog Surf School Byron Bay we pride ourselves on teaching safety, technique and impact on the environment. Let Black Dog Surf School Byron Bay guide you on your surfing journey!

Black Dog Surf School has a shop in central Byron Bay which is a pulsing meeting point, spreading a friendly atmosphere for locals, travellers and students.

Black Dog Surf School Byron Bay is a family run business and its coaching team shares the same enthusiasm as myself. We have a strong bond and our aim is to ensure our clients have a fun and unforgettable experience, while learning to surf in Byron Bay.
