      Best surf experience in Byron
      Had the best time with Let's Go Surfing! Mitch and Ava were great instructors that made sure everyone was safe, and had lots of fun! I strongly recommend anyone going to Byron and looking to get a taste of surfing, that you do it here! If I was staying longer in Byron, I would have booked private lessons with either Mitch or Ava as they were so incredible. Thank you for a fabulous day!!

      Loved every second!
      I had the most fantastic tour on my honeymoon. We were guided around the beautiful Brunswick River which is like a dream. The SUP boards are so much easier that I though to use. We were explained all the safety things we needed to know so I felt safe. Can't stop smiling! Thanks guys!

      Best paddleboarding in Byron!
      Had an amazing time paddleboarding yesterday, waters were calm so could go at our own pace. Our instructor Dan gave loads of great info about the area and its history, alongside giving lots of tips of what else to check out while we're in Byron. Also I had dislocated my shoulder a month earlier, which I made them fully aware of, and they were extremely accommodating; even gave tips on how to ease the strain on my bad shoulder. Recommend this SUP to anyone visiting Byron Bay!

      Awesome first SUP experience
      Dylan ran a great SUP lesson and was super patient and encouraging. We were very lucky to spot a pod of dolphins and several fish. I can’t recommend Let’s Go Surfing Byron Bay enough - they’re awesome!

      Absolute highlight of our trip to Byron
      Today we did a stand up paddle board tour on Brunswick river, our instructor was an absolute legend. He had us up on our feet in no time then we headed up the river. Such a beautiful river and surround area to explore. Our instructor was also super knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the history of Brunswick heads. We also lucked out and got to see lots of wildlife. Highly recommended this experience!! Can’t thank Lets Go SUP enough for looking after us and making it so much fun!!

      The perfect surf
      Our family absolutely loved the surfing lessons here at Byron bay. We had such a friendly instructor called Guy, who taught us all the tricks and tips especially for us beginners. It was such a friendly and fun community and enjoyed every bit. We went through all the safety tips then set out into the water. It was super safe and definitely recommend.

      Paddle boarding
      I ended up being the only person for the lesson so I had a private session. The lesson was good and we even saw a turtle! I would definitely go again.

      Surf Lesson in Byron Bay - Definitely Recommend!!
      My fiancé and I had a private surfing lesson and we enjoyed it so much! Ava, our instructor was so friendly and made us feel completely comfortable, she was very patient and we were able to stand up and catch waves independently by the end of the lesson! I couldn’t recommend enough! It was so easy to book and super efficient so we didn’t waste time faffing around! Th shop is 50 yards from the beach which makes it so nice, hassle free and relaxed. Already hired boards from Let’s Go Surfing to go out again on our own tomorrow morning.

      Great SUP experience with Katie
      Katie was excellent, a really outstanding coach and guide. She went out of her way to help my septuagenarian mother navigate a surfboard. An all round good egg!

      Must do!
      Such a good way to see the estuary and try out paddle boarding for the first time. We went as a group on a private tour and loved every bit of it. Our guides Ricky and Krystal were super friendly and very accommodating for our experience level. The home-made hommus and bread was the perfect way to end the tour. Definitely recommend this as part of Byron getaway.

      Friendly, organised and fun
      After one of the other local surf schools forgot we had booked with them for the morning, these guys made space for us at the last minute in the afternoon. We had a lesson run by Tara. She was super friendly and offered helpful tips. There were only 4 of us in the class (2 beginners) and everyone was standing up by the end. Couldn’t recommend these guys more 👍👍👍

      Great SUP experience!
      I had the best afternoon SUPing on the Brunswick River yesterday. I was lucky enough to be the only one booked on the tour, and my guide Darcy was very friendly, informative and made sure I had fun. He took lots of photos for me too, which I really appreciated. It was so peaceful gliding through the mangroves, and we saw pelicans, other water birds, fish and stingrays. I didn’t fall off - although did come close once!

    I signed up for the second round of group surf lessons with let's go surfing. I enjoyed it and was really excited to jump into the waves every Sunday! I learned so much during the 6 weeks and added an extra private lesson with Ava, which helped me heaps. I am now confident enough to go out on my own on a small waves day :)
    Highly recommend them!

    Surfing lesson booked as a group through Ultimate Travel. Had Ava, Mark and Luke as instructors they were all absolutely class and assisted everyone in catching waves. Felt nervous before but they fully helped put your mind at ease and were very supportive and helpful that the stress was fully taken away and nothing but a fun time was had! Would absolutely do it again and highly recommend for others to do so too🤙🏼

    Over a year ago, I ventured into my first surfing lesson with Let's Go Surfing, and it absolutely captivated me.
    The passion and expertise of the instructors, coupled with Byron's perfect waves, turned what was meant to be a one-time adventure into a lifelong passion.
    Returning to Byron for another lesson, I felt a profound sense of excitement and fulfillment.
    Let's Go Surfing isn't just about learning to surf; they inspire a deep love for the ocean.
    Highly recommended for anyone looking to be truly inspired by the sport of surfing!

    Great morning out learning to surf ! Such a mix of instructors all of who were hard case, friendly and made me feel very safe in the water. Only note would be to have more feedback as to what went wrong when trying to stand up so I could have changed things up and stood up more can't wait to try again with these guys on my next visit to byron 🤙🌊

    Ava was a brilliant coach. Really gave you good advice to help your technique - we were standing up on the board regularly and keeping our balance within an hour! Well worth it. Would recommend. The waves were great too at the Main Beach! Be aware that it can be tiring though, especially wading back against the waves to catch the next one. We had a 2 hour lesson and that was perfect! Some companies were advertising 3-4 hour lessons and we definitely wouldn’t have managed those, and we’re relatively physically fit! Thanks again for a fab time, Let’s Go Surfing :)

    Hi Lauren, Thanks for the great review! we are very lucky to have one of the rare licenses and permits to teach surfing In beautiful Byron Bay! We do not offer a 3-4 hour surfing lesson as we do not need to bus our guests to another beach 30 - 40 minutes away outside of Byron.... We surf ‘ right here... right now’ no long bus trip. Ava is amazing and will be stoked to hear your feedback ! Keep surfing ! Cheers, Dylan

    Amazing experience to surf in Byron Bay with Let's Go surfing! Excelent surf coaches, always very friendly and professional, and willing to find the best surf spot for each day. Thank you very much Toby, Dan, Lucas and Ava! You were great. Special thanks to the incredible Ava, who besides being a wonderful buddy on the water, was also the best tour guide, with the best playlist!

    The surf lesson was incredible! Stood up on the board and surfed multiple waves on my 1st ever lesson! Ava the coach was amazing, I couldnt be more thankful! I was however very much humbled in my second lesson when I thought a 3m wave would be perfect to surf as a beginner as “how hard can it be?”
    Very!
    Top tip: stick to the crashed waves as a beginner, 1 great surf doesnt make you a pro 😂 a humbling experience indeed!!

    Overall, coaches are great the shop was welcoming and the experience was well worth it!

    We went to this surf school as total noobs. Our pale white European bodies had never set foot in the ocean before. However, during the first lesson we already managed to stand up on our boards! Our instructor (Ava), who was very passionate and patient, gave us great insights on how to improve quickly. In the second lesson we were able to paddle and do some waves all on our own! Tomorrow we will have our third and final lesson, which will probably include how to do the hand gesture technique 🤙🏄‍♂️ We’re so glad we booked the 3 lesson package, it truly is so much fun!
