Overview
Group lessons with Soul Surf School are a great way to experience surfing some of our world famous breaks in a group setting. We have a number of beaches to chose from in the Byron/Lennox/Ballina area, and our team are dedicated to finding the best, fun and safest waves every day.

We run the lowest ratio of instructors to surfers in the area, at 1:7 for adults and from 1:4 for little ones. This ensures that all our surfers receive plenty of attention, individual feedback and all the groms are safe in the water.

We have a great range of equipment, with over 80 fun safe soft surfboards and intermediate to advanced boards that will help you to learn faster and catch lots of waves.

I had a private surfing lesson, and man - I'm hooked. I learned so much within the lesson, and it left me super keen to get out again soon. With a lesson straight from the get-go, I feel it help me sidestep bad habits and utter frustration. It'll help me with practice with more confidence as well as exercise (a great alternative to burpees!). Want to thank Matt and Soul Surf School for expert guidance and especially 'what to focus' once stand up is achieved.🏆🏆🏆

The instructors were amazing with their enthusiasm and care with my young boys and myself. Matt, Alex, Rod and Hugh were our instructors over 4 days of surf school and I was very impressed with how they were with us. Highly recommend and to the owner of surf school big commendation to your staff.

Friendly staff and easy to organise. Hugh was a legend and had my 11 year old up and surfing in no time. His friendly and patient approach was appreciated and my daughter proudly gave him 10/10 for the lesson. The smiles were worth it. Thank you.
