Tommy loves the ocean. He grew up in a small surfing community on the mid-north coast of South West Rocks where he has managed surf schools up and down the coast and has been coaching since he was 16 years old. Tommy has been with Soul Surf School since the start, managing the surf school and making sure lessons are always of a high standard. When he’s not working, he’s saving for his next surf mission to Indonesia or on tour with his tough rock band “The Badlands”
Kyle is a great instructor and outstanding surfer. If you get him taking your group, you're lucky. He has a great success rate of getting people up and riding in no time at all. Kyle has travelled the world in search of waves. But love nothing more than being back here in Byron Bay, known as the tropical paradise on the east coast who can blame him.

Good surflessons and good accomodation.
You pay too much. The food vouchers you can get for free from every travel desk in Byron. You're not going to use de 2hr surfboard hire, because after a surf lesson you don't have the energy to surf even more, and if you do two hours isn't enough to do some proper surfing.
You're better of booking a hostel and taking just a surf lesson package. Not all in one. It will save you a lot of money.

The Surf instructors and the lessons were great
Staff of the hostel
I tried to surf two times before going with Soul Surf and wasn't able. The first try after the lesson on the beach, I got it! I got it all the time after. I spend the whole morning surfing and like it so much! We saw dolphins. We had a very great time!
I had a great day with them and even I never tried any of board sport they somehow managed I was able to stand on the surfboard. They divided us into two smaller groups so at the end each group has approx six people plus the instructor. There was a system so you had to wait in a queue every time. At the end, I had around 20 attempts with help of the instructor. But it was enough especially for dummy beginner as I am.
I have had two surfing lessons at Soul Surf School, and they were the best lessons that I have ever been in during all of my travels in Australia. The staff is wonderful, and truly want nothing more than to see you succeed. I am a lost cause with surfing, and they still never gave up on me. They care, and take the time with each individual thoroughly. I was worried that being in a group lesson I may not get as much one on one time as I had hoped, but I was wrong! It was amazing. I definitely recommend going here!
Initially, we booked half day, but as we already stood on the board within hours we got hooked. Rob and all the other boys did a tremendous job, heaps of laughs and always a good vibe. Go there if you want to learn how to surf!
Great experience and caught some great waves. The staff is really friendly en funny and they try their best to teach you how to surf and have patience with everyone. Thanks so much guys!
