What you'll do

We will meet at the Carpark in Town in Byron Bay where the waves are best for lessons.

We will set you up with the surfboard and wetsuit / rash shirt, sunscreen and wax.

We get on the beach for the instruction and safety talk.

We then go out into the waves together and get you straight up and surfing with Style.

We teach you heaps more once we are in the waves as far as paddling correctly, wave selection and more safety.

We help our customers 100% whilst in the waves.

We have surfed in Byron Bay and the north coast my whole life and I know about surfing in Byron Bay better than any other Surf School Operator.

Happy Days & Catch you in the waves in Byron Bay. Gaz & V.

Hi Mates, Welcome to Style Surf, born & bred in Byron Bay. We are Byron Bays' longest family owned & operated Byron Bay Surf School.

A true local business that has held a Byron Bay Surf School licence since the 1990s, and we pride ourselves on being the Best not the Biggest. Each day we check the surf conditions so we know where to go for the best & safest waves.

I first started teaching surfing during the 1980s when I was working at the MADDOG Surfboard factory here in Byron Bay. I teach surfers to become Surf Instructors through Academy of Surfing Instructors. [ASI].
I also used to teach Surf Life Saving skills to new members involved in surf lifesaving. [SLSA]
No one knows or does it better. Happy Days & Catch U in the Waves, Gaz & V

We had a great time during our lesson with Gary and Sam. They were both very knowledgeable (everyone caught a wave), and the class size allowed for some 1:1 pointers. Great for first time surfers! Everyone in our group had an awesome time. Highly recommend!

If you’re in town, I highly suggested to try surfing school with Gary. Even though both of us are first timers, the instructor is very welcoming, making sure that we understand all the basics before we head to the beach. One of our highlights for our trip to Byron Bay for sure

Someone that is not a strong ocean swimmer. And no prior surfing experience. The lesson was very engaging.

Would definitely recommend.The offer instructor, I think his name was David, was also fun and pick up was print. Loved the ongoing communication prior to the lesson.

Awesome few hours surfing with Gary and the team. Lots of time in the water. Everyone’s surfing progressed really well even in just the one lesson. Lots of great skills learnt and tips provided to stay safe in the water. Can’t wait to get a surfboard and have another go!
