Surf Lesson! 18 October

Last week, we hit Main Beach here in Byron Bay for our surf lesson! We all left our Lexis Campus together at 10am. Everyone got fitted with a wet-suit and we set off to get our boards for the beach. The boards were very long – better for catching the waves!

As we approached the beach, it looked beautiful. The sun was out for us but the sky over the distant sea looked very dramatic indeed. Thankfully, we were spared the rain and thunder for our whole session 🙂 Here they are, all ready to go!

Our surf instructor spoke with all students for the first few minutes at the beach, going over all the important tips and things to do/not do when in the water… then it was time to hit the waves!

We started at one section of beach, before moving further down, to catch some better waves. Some of our students had been surfing a few times already but for some of the others, it was their first time to try. Everyone did amazingly well. I think they are all hooked!

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!
