On Wednesday 9th November, an excited group of students spent their afternoon bodyboarding on Byron Bay’s iconic Main Beach.
If you are a beginner and have little ocean knowledge, learning to surf may taking some time and effort. However, the learning curve for bodyboarding is far less and most excel with bodyboarding in their first lesson!
Plus, bodyboarding is less weather and ocean condition dependent than surfing.
Instructors from Lets Go Surfing take our students bodyboarding for free once per month!

Everyone walks together from the Lexis campus to Main Beach. We are blessed to be only a 15-minute walk to Byron’s Main Beach!
Lets Go Surfing provide students with a locker for their belongings, wetsuits and boards and then everyone walks a few steps to Main Beach.
There is a quick demonstration on the beach before heading into waves!
The surf was choppy, but all students managed to catch a few waves and had lots of fun, which is the important thing!
