What you'll do

We start with an introduction to surfing - we talk about waves, boards and what to do.

Then we hit the water. You'll be close to the instructor and in a safe place on the beach. We try to find a spot that's less crowded, so more waves for you - it just depends on the conditions on the day.

Where you'll be

We will surf at a safe location for beginnners, this maybe at a non-central beach, so less crowds. Less crowds means more waves. It just depends on the days conditions.

Billy was a great instructor! He gave super clear tips and explanations, and it was great fun to be able to stand up in some waves!

Billy was a great teacher! My partner and I really enjoyed our afternoon learning to surf with him in the lovely clear water at Byron. He broke down the steps and individualised the teaching for our different skill levels. He was fun, friendly and even dropped us home after the lesson to save us walking. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Billy

Fun filled afternoon of surfing! Billy is an exceptional teacher and we had a great 2hr time surfing. He brought perfect boards for me to use (one like I have at home and another) and took me through all the steps needed to feel confident. I’ve surfed a bit before but Billy helped me improve my pop up and progress to turning the board down the line. He knows the local spots and took me to the pass which was a perfect beginner/intermediate wave. While there are lots of people at that spot, it was enough space to find good waves every minute and not run into others. The next day I rented a board and went to the same spot and made some more progress riding my longest wave ever all the way down the beach. I highly recommend surfing with Billy - he’s a great teacher, knows where to go and is very responsive. Unlike other teachers I’ve seen, he gets in the right position to help you progress and see what you’re doing when you can catch the wave yourself and need help turning and staying on the wave. Don’t wait, book Billy and you’ll have a great day!
