Hiroshima Juniors Surf Lesson @ The Wreck, Byron Bay – March 28

Header

This morning we hit the beach for our second surf lesson! It was a different kind of day – not as sunny, but the clouds and light were beautiful on the beach.

Some of the students returned to do a surf lesson, while the rest were happy to swim, walk the beach and pick interesting rocks and shells 🙂

Wet-suits ready to go!

Blake from Lets Go Surfing picked us up promptly at 9am, dropping us to their shop by the beach. Once everyone got fitted with their boards and wet-suits, we were ready to hit the waves!

On our way to the beach

Everyone had a quick dip in the sea to cool down before the lesson.

We had the lovely Amy as our instructor today and she went through all the important points, tips and safety instructions before they were ready to hit the waves.

While they were preparing for surf, the others went for another dip!

Ready for the waves!!!

We were later joined by Lexis students Nico and Anselmo!

Everyone ready to start! 🙂

I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional Aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

See everyone concentrating hard on their masterpieces! 😀

Summer is still here and it was beautifully warm in and out of the water 🙂

We collected the boards from the wonderful team at Let’s Go Surfing, then I gave the students a quick demonstration on the beach before they headed into waves!

The waves were pretty small but they all managed to catch a few and had lots of fun, which is the important thing!
