We strongly recommend doing at least one lesson to get a good technique and to keep you safe and doing three lessons to get you beyond the stage of lethal beginner. We can book you a private or place in a group lesson with the local surf schools. this is the safest , most efficient and most fun way to get started. We don't want to read about novice surfers being run over, abused, hit by their board or washed out to sea.
If doing a lesson is not possible do some research on the net and you should find some video tutorials on Stand-Up technique. It is really important to try and use the correct technique from the beginning as it can be really hard to correct later on.

is from our friends in Byron Bay. This is really the first day of surfing within a group environment.
Once the inital stage is complete and you can paddle on to a wave and stand up then it is time to get your own board..
This is our local favourite- Dave Davidson from beginners to advanced.
