Private and Small-Group Surfing Lessons in Byron Bay

    What to Expect
    Surfers often flock to Byron Bay’s Main Beach for its mellow waves and clear, protected waters. Your lesson time will be scheduled to take advantage of optimal tidal conditions at the beach. Meet your professional instructor at a surf shop in town, where you’ll be outfitted with a wetsuit, board and sunscreen. All you need to bring is a swimsuit and towel. 
    Head to a less-crowded section of the beach with a group of no more than 12 and an expert instructor for each six students — one of the best student-to-teacher ratios in Byron Bay. During your 2-hour lesson, learn ocean safety essentials and surfing basics like mounting your board, paddling and standing up. After practicing on the beach for a time, paddle out into the calm waters to put your new skills into action. Your instructor will be on hand the entire time to provide guidance and ensure your safety. 
    You can also opt for a private, 1.5-hour lesson to enjoy your instructor’s undivided attention. This is a great option for those who already know how to surf and want to take their skills to the next level with customized instruction. 
    At the end of your lesson, you’ll have a solid foundation to join in one of Australia’s favorite outdoor activities. Surf’s up!
