On Thursday 3rd, students went to iconic Main Beach for a group surf lesson with Lets Go Surfing. Typically, Lets Go Surfing fit us in for a group lesson once a month, however for November they offered us an additional lesson to accommodate our tremendous student interest for surfing at the moment.
What happens on a typically surf lesson day?
After class students get changed into their swimmers, then meet the Instructors outside our campus reception.
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.
What do the instructors cover in our group lesson?
During the lesson, the instructors educate students on ocean safely and how to catch and stand up on their first wave. Learning through a trusted school ensures that you build knowledge, confidence and cultivate the correct surfing technique – very important!
What did our students think of this lesson?
Students commented on how nice it was to learn in a familiar group with plenty of hands-on support. Many were amazed how easy, safe and enjoyable it was to learn.

Furthermore, every month instructors take our students bodyboarding for free! If you are interested in seeing what bodyboarding looks like and what a bodyboarding afternoon entails, we have a great recent blog post linked below.
Byron Bay and Surfing are naturally intertwined
Byron Bay is known internationally as a surf town and allures enthusiasts year-round with reliable waves that accommodate all levels. Tallows is known for its big swells, The Pass has world-class longboard waves and Main Beach is great for beginners to learn and fall in love with sport. With so many spots in close proximity, you can easily shift a few hundred metres depending on the weather to discover the best break.
Are you eager to learn but nervous? Bodyboarding is a much easier learning curve!
If you are a beginner and have little ocean knowledge, getting to the point where you can catch waves consistently might take a couple of lessons. However, the learning curve for bodyboarding is far less and most excel with bodyboarding in their first lesson. Furthermore, bodyboarding is less weather and ocean condition dependant, it is hard not to have a blast bodyboarding. As aforementioned, instructors take our students bodyboarding for free once every month. It is always a fantastic afternoon together, you can read about our recent bodyboarding afternoon below.
On Wednesday students spent the afternoon doing a quintessentially Byron Bay activity, bodyboarding at Byron Bay’s iconic Main Beach. Students warmed up with beach soccer before heading out to bodyboard. There was a quick demonstration on the beach before heading into waves! The waves were choppy, but all students managed to catch a few waves and had lots of fun, which is the important thing! Some students came down just to watch the bodyboarding and beach soccer from the sidelines.
