Beach Activities and Surf Lessons! 31st July

Yesterday afternoon’s activity involved perfect waves and warm sunshine down at the beach! Some of our students took a surf lesson with Blake from ‘Lets Go Surfing’ and the rest of us enjoyed a nice walk and some time relaxing!

You can’t beat a glorious winters day in Byron Bay!


Our surfing students were catching the waves at Belongil Beach. We tried to watch them but they had gone too far down the beach for us walking. Instead we found a nice spot by ‘The Wreck’ and set up a picnic rug. We had our usual coffee club treats (Tim-Tams) and great conversations.

We even had some furry friends come and say hello ❤


Some of us paddled in the water to cool off after the walk. We also practiced our soccer skills for this weeks game!!

It was a wonderful afternoon! Thank you Naoki, Nanami and Kana for showing great leadership skills and being so kind to our junior students!
