Body Boarding! October 3rd

Last Thursday, our awesome students gathered in front of the school to all head down together to the beach for an afternoon of Body Boarding.

It was a quick walk along Byron Bay’s main street to the Lets Go Surfing shop.

When we arrived, we met the awesome team and had a crash course in the basics of body boarding. We were each given a board and a wet suit if wanted one.

Now it was time to hit the waves..

As soon as we arrived at main beach we spotted a pod of whales ❤ This time of the year the whales are migrating with their new born calves. It is very common to spot them breaching and splashing not far from the shore. No matter how many times you see them, it is always magical!

We decided to take our boards out in between the flags, as this is the safest area to swim because it is always patrolled by lifeguards.

It was a great afternoon, thanks to our friends at Lets Go Surfing for providing the equipment! 😀

An afternoon of Bodyboarding! 14 March

Yesterday we headed down to the beach for some Bodyboarding!

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!

Last Wednesday we hit the beach for our February surf lesson! We met at reception at 10am and had the lovely Blake from Lets Go Surfing pick us up and drop us to their beach-side shop location. Students got their wet-suits, tops and sun cream here and were fitted with a long surfboard.

Here is everyone learning all about surfing, before hitting the waves!

Morning Surf Lesson! January 9th

This morning we all set off at 10am for our first surf lesson of 2019! 😀

The class booked out quickly, with only 8 available spaces per lesson (so make sure to book early next time to avoid missing out!). The small numbers mean that lots of expert help is available for everyone from our pro instructor, Blake, from Lets Go Surfing.

Everyone got sorted with their wet suits, boards and sun cream (don’t be fooled by the clouds, it was very, very hot out there!!). Two of our group had tried surfing before but to everyone else, it was a first time experience. Blake took them through all the safety info first, followed by his many surf tips.

Everyone ready to go 🙂

The sea was pretty rough today but everyone seemed to catch waves pretty quickly, with Silas standing up on his board almost immediately!

Nice one, Silas! 🙂

5 reasons you should learn to surf today!!

Let's Go Surfing

1. You can’t explain the feeling you get when you ride a wave until you actually experience it, so get out there and give it a go and feel the ‘stoke’.

2. Surfing increases your strength, balance and fitness, not only that but simply spending time in the ocean positively impacts your health.

3. Along with becoming fit you will also become confident. Learning to surf, you will need courage to take on different conditions and grow your confidence!

4. Make new friends and become apart of the surfing community. Enjoy time together in the water catching some waves, having a laugh and most importantly having fun.

5. You never regret a surf!

The waves weren’t very big but this was perfect for the students, as it was the first time any of them had tried bodyboarding!

The sea looked so beautiful and inviting  ❤️
