Tommy Flint

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 Riley

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.

Ross Jones

Experienced surfer and passionate coach, Ross is a real life chameleon adapting to both private technical sessions and groups of surfers ensuring that everyone is progressing at a fast rate.

"Best time surfing ever!"

Fun instructors but also very informative and take the time to make sure you progress. I had never surfed before and I felt so comfortable in the water. By day three I was out surfing on the blue waves which was the best feeling! Now all I want to do is find another holiday to surf!

We recently did a 3 day surf and stay at Byron Bay with Soul Surf. All the instructors were absolutely fantastic! We had the pleasure of working with Rodrigo, Ross, Chris and did a semi-private session with Kroft. Each instructor showed enthusiasm and patience towards all surfers give the best experience possible. They remained down to earth but were willing to offer additional information and support in order to learn the key components to surf independently. I would definitely recommend Soul Surf to anyone wanting to improve or learn some new surfing skills.

"I definitely revisit."

I liked the Bellina beach. It was a perfect place for beginners.

It is impressive that Soul Surf have 6 spots so the instructor choose according to the daily weather and wave.

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!
