My very first surfing lesson.
BlackDog instructors were great, even when the day was not ideal.
Next time I'll hire a private lesson.
One point to improve: Shop Address was not clear and start time was not specified.

Booked onto the half day surf school, lady at the office was excellent and really friendly. However, after that we weren't amazed by our experience. From reading all the excellent reviews though I think it was probably just a one off.
When we arrived at the beach we had to wait around 20 minutes for the instructors to get changed and come down. Then we spent about an hour sat in the sun talking about rip tides and practicing technique (which could have been made a lot quicker to say we were all dying in the heat or could have moved into the shade). Then got onto the water, and although good that the instructors are there to help you catch the waves, they were more focused on chatting to eachother and didn't give much help to those of us that were struggling. It was exhausting being battered by the waves and not being able to surf, but no tips were offered to help and we sort of just wanted to give up. Also, it was only in the last two minutes that we were taught how to paddle and catch a wave alone, we had one practice and then the lesson was over, so the timing could have been planned out a lot better. There are lots of rocks on the sea floor and we ended up cutting our feet a lot.
The instructors were very friendly though and had a good laugh. Great atmosphere in the group, just need to maybe watch the group more and offer help to those that were struggling.

We booked the 3-hour surf session with John Chick and had a fantastic time out there on the waves. Well, mainly IN the waves, for us...but what a fun day out! Felt safe and looked after the entire time - it was great to be instructed by someone who obviously loves what he does. Highly recommend!

While traveling the east coast of Australia it is a must to stop and surf along the way! I had never taken a surfing lesson before and this company was incredible. The staff was helpful and funny, my friends and I had a blast riding the waves with them! Thank you for such a positive experience!!

A brand new experience for me and Black Dog made it a truly memorable one. Instructor Chris worked hard to make the lessons informative and great fun. Tam welcomed us to the school, kept in touch and was an energetic passionate advocate for the school. Loved it. Thinking about a surf lesson during your Byron holiday- call Tam at Black Dog and have fun 🏄‍♀️

Had a blast for our very first surfing lesson. The service was second to none - from our first phone call with the extremely passionate and incredibly welcoming, Tam, to the equally passionate and fun instructor, Chris! Chris made us feel very relaxed about the whole thing and was keen to point out that the most important part of the whole day was to have fun. He was very attentive and made sure that each person got plenty of help and attention. And the icing on the cake was being able to stand up once or twice! Would definitely recommend Blackdog Surf School.

I absolutely loved the lesson. Had such a good time with a very small group size. Organised and easy going. Well worth it, could not recommend enough. Came away absolutely buzzing!!
