Welcome to Style Surf School My name is Gaz Morgan & my Family has Owned & Operated Style Surf School in Byron Bay since 1999.

I have been surfing in Byron Bay & the Far North Coast since the 1970s.

I am an ASI Level 3 Surfing Coach and have been surf coaching for more than 30 years and running Byron Bay Style Surf School since 1999.

I have been involved in the local surfing scene with the Local Boardriders Club & Surf Life Saving Clubs, organising Local Surfing Fund Raisers for many years.

I also worked in the Byron Bay based Maddog Surfboard Factory during the 1980s & 1990s in Retail & Wholesale – Distributing & Selling Surfboards & Surfing Products both Locally, Nationally & Internationally whilst working alongside my big brother John and working with local surfboard shapers, Mark Plater & Bob Margetts at the Maddog Surf Centre.

Maddog has since closed its doors as my brother has retired and goes fishing each day. Maddog Surfboards 

I teach “Surfers to be Surfing Instructors” at the Academy of Surfing Instructors.

All of my life I have travelled all over the world surfing & Byron Bay has some of the best learning waves in the world for you to have a go!!

Please be Aware of the “FALSE ADVERTISING” with Byron Bay Group Surfing Lessons? 

Byron Bay has plenty of Surf Schools.

Some Surf Schools only teach in Byron Bay 100%.

Some other schools “advertise” Byron Bay for Group Surf Lessons but do not hold a licence to have group lessons so they drive away for 30km & 30 minutes from Byron Bay?

These Beaches “DO NOT HAVE THE SAFE WAVES” like we get in Byron Bay. Great for experts & too BIG for beginners.

Ballina Surf Schools can take Big Groups of 20 students but Byron Bay can only have 10 students per class.

 These schools tell you false stories to lead you to believe they go somewhere better. 100% false advertising.

Do your research or miss out on the “Real Deal Byron Bay Experience”. Gaz.

The Surf Schools that are licenced to only surf in Byron Bay are:

1. Style Surf School. 2. Blackdog Surfing. 3.Byron Bay Surf Camp. 

Then there are Ballina Shire Licenced Surf Schools they advertise Byron Bay but cannot use the waves in Byron Bay and drive away for group lessons.


There are only 4 Licences available in Byron Bay for Group Lessons & are given out to the 4 Best Operators on their Expertise & Merit.

Ballina Shire is an amazing place with some of the best waves in the world but does not have the safe beginner waves of The Bay in Byron.

My mates from Ballina bring their own kids to Byron Bay for them to experience surfing first hand in the safe waves inside Cape Byron.

I have a Daily Byron Bay Surf Report & I know where the Best Learning Waves are every day.

Style Surf is Licenced with Byron Shire Council, Cape Byron National Parks and the Byron Bay Marine Park.

We also have free photos taken with you on the Sand.

It’s always “Happy Days”

We have lessons at 9 am & 1 pm Daily.

We don’t have a ‘BOOK NOW BUTTON’

We offer a “full refund” if the surf is not safe for you.

Just Pay On The Day so there is “No Problem at All” if the lesson is cancelled due to dangerous surf conditions.

Best Surfing lessons ever…..

I recently had 3 consecutive days of surf lessons with David and had the best time! At the end of day one, I could confidently stand and surf the wave, at the end of day three, I am now confident to go out surfing on my own with no issues. David came and picked me up from my accomodation in Byron each day and dropped me home – super convenient! They also provided all equipment including wetsuit, rash vest and surfboard. Gaz and David are some of the nicest guys you will ever meet with a wealth of surfing knowledge and really easy personalised instructions to make you the best surfer you can be. We surfed right in the heart of Byron Bay and only small groups each day, meaning the instructors had plenty of time to spend with you one-on-one. Thank again guys!! Emma C.

“Best Surf Lessons in Byron Bay”


Gaz and V go above and beyond for their clients, they were extremely accommodating for our family with young children. Gaz will have you surfing he is a fantastic teacher! He pays attention to all his students, gives individual advice,even helps you catch the wave(pushes you on), picks you up and drops you back from your accommodation ……Gaz and V make it too eeeeasy! After struggling to surf for years three lessons with Gaz and I can now surf along the face of the wave and I am hooked!!! These surf lessons have changed my life….Thank you Gaz you’re a LEGEND!

“Best surf instructor there is!”

Gaz is the best surf instructor I’ve ever encountered! I’d just completed a 10 day surf camp but I learnt more in one session with Gaz than I had during those 10 days! He taught me completely new techniques that had me surfing better than ever! He is an excellent teacher, who really knows what he’s doing. He’s patient, kind, funny, and made the experience so enjoyable! Everyone in our group was standing and surfing pretty quickly! He can have you surfing green waves and jumping to your feet in one session! And Gaz has great communication skills so he’s perfect even if English isn’t your first language. He’s a local who knows the best spots to surf at and he genuinely cares about teaching you properly, whether you have one lesson or ten! If you want to surf, this is the guy you need! I honestly wish I’d taken more lessons with him! He even takes pictures and sends them to you for free! He picks you up and drops you back off where you’re staying, and he even drove us up to see the lighthouse where we spotted a whale! Couldn’t recommend this more!

“Surfing at its best”

My son and I had a surf trip booked and we left it up to the amazing Gaz, what he doesn’t know about Byron and the waves is not worth knowing.
He is patient, informative and cares about you having the best experience doing something he obviously loves.
He had both of us up and surfing catering for our different abilities with subtly and professionalism. I will always have these memories to share with my son, thank you.

“Gaz is a stella guy”

Not sure on his teaching skills but Gaz seems like a real stand out guy. He found my wallet at an airport, with around $900 in it, tracked me down by phone, and went out of his way to give it back to me. I offered him a reward but he would not take it. Helped restore my faith in humans.

 “Raining and Ripping”

Had a great experience with Gaz! No BS kind of guy and tells it like it is. Definitely worth every penny and the time. You will have loads of fun with him. Super accommodating and will have you surfing in no time! Too bad there isn’t a 6th star option. He’d get mine!

“Thank you Gaz for entertaining, safe surf lessons and sharing your life passion of surfing”

Gaz stopped us on the beach with some free surf advice for our daughter who has a prosthetic leg. She joined his class the next day, Gaz changed her surf style and she had a blast surfing with him and the team. I (Mum) joined in the next day with Gaz and the team as our daughter had such an amazing time and had a great time myself!! Thank you Gaz for everything you did for our daughter as she had such a wonderful time and is now hooked 🙂 You taught us more than just how to be pushed on to waves, so we learned about surfing as a whole and not just about standing up. See you next time!

 “Life changing morning!”

5 of 5 starsAfter being extremely reluctant to sign up to do a surf lesson as a very unconfident swimmer and someone who doesn’t like water I can say it was one of the best things I have ever done. It was absolutely the best decision to go with Gaz at Style Surfing. He was absolutely incredible! He devoted his time to me 1 on 1, taking my out further and teaching me techniques and to be more confident. He is so knowledgeable and was so patient with me. He got everybody up on the waves and feeling good. I was actually really inspired by Gaz and am so grateful. We had random people on the beach interrupt our session to just say how great he was and that he taught them to surf and he is the best. He turned me from someone who would have never considered surfing into someone who wants to do it again. Would highly recommend!


Absolutely amazing

Going with Style Surfing was definitely the best decision! Gaz is an amazing surf instructor..probably the best you can get!!! He absolutely loves surfing and made this passion his profession. He grew up in Byron Bay, knows where to find the best waves and how to get you standing up on your first lesson. He’s also great fun and gets you motivated from the very beginning. He even helped me and my boyfriend to fix up the second-hand surfboards we had bought..legend!!!
Too bad we had to leave the next day, otherwise we would have loved to take more lessons.
