Soul Surf School introduces you to surfing on some of Australia's most stunning beaches. Professional surf coaches all with a minimum of eight years experience in the local area will take you to the best waves, teaching you the foundations of good surfing in a fun-filled and safe environment. Soul Surf School offers surf experiences for total beginners looking for an introduction to surfing to intermediate surfers looking to fine tune their surfing techniques.

The surf sessions, which are daily surf safaris, will take you to some stunning surf locations that are perfect for learning to surf. The three lessons are a complete introduction to surfing so whether you have never surfed before or want a refresher course, the experience is tailored specifically for you. Enough time will be spent explaining ocean safety which ensures that you will know the safe area to surf or swim.

You will be taught all the necessary steps to get you surfing and riding waves in no time at all. Soul Surf School has licenses to teach surfing at up to 15 different beaches so whatever the wind, swell, or tides are, there is a suitable beach that enables quick surfing progression. The team of instructors is all career surf guides which mean they have a lot of experiences to offer each individual surfer who comes on a surf trip with them.

Soul Surf School uses top of the range learner surfboards and Oneil wetsuits in the cooler winter months, which ensures maximum comfort at all times through the surf sessions. Soul Surf School runs two surf sessions per day with each session lasting for four hours. This time frame takes into consideration transfer time (to and from the beach) beach theory and water time. Sometimes the transfer time varies due to the necessity to find the most suitable surf conditions on a given day.

  • 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 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.

    "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!"
