The 2 surf lessons I took were really worth it.
First of all, the pick up service Soul Surfing offers is amazing. The instructors picked me up at my hostel (Wake Up!) in their van so I safed the 25 minutes it would have taken to go to their surf shop in town. After the pick up they took us to beaches down south (Two different beaches each day, depending on the quality of he waves. 20-30 minutes drive maybe). The beaches were both beautiful, had good surfing conditions and we had the opportunity to shower there after the lesson as well. We were in total around 20 people and they split us into two groups of 10 people, depending on if we have surfed before or not. In the beginning the instructors showed us on dry land the basics, how to get on our board and what the steps are to stand up. They also gave some safery advises. After that we got into water. The instructors were very helpful, giving us a push into the wave we would take and constantly giving us individual feedback! That was more than I expected. Also, all instructors on both days (in total I met 5) were super friendly and had a very positive, supporting energy. You really feel that they want you to learn it and to have fun while doing it. That was amazing. I am very happy I took the course and if I should return to Byron I would definitely surf with them again, improving my skills.
