I had an amazing experience with Blackdog Surfing. The instructors, Tam and Danny, are really cool and professional! But what i liked the most about Blackdog is their personal approach. For 3 days i have been surfing with them, but it felt like i have known them for months. Really easy going people, love it! Keep up the good work... More

It was AWESOME! I was recommended to try Blackdog surfing and I'm SO happy I chose them. The classes are small compared to the other schools, the service is second to none (if you have been in Australia you know that can be hard to come by), and I walked away knowing what I can work on to be a...

Everything was awesome. Arriving till drop off. The teacher has given feedback, like what to improve for the next wave and a good introduction for safety. It was amazing and lots of fun. I will come back for sure😊

I arrived in Byron with no idea about which surf school was going to be best for my first surfing lessons, but saw online that Blackdog had great comments about the team - and that's really what's going to make a lesson work for me - a cool team who can teach the skills. It was the right decision. I... More
