Hi Mates, Gaz here and Welcome to Style Surfing School in Byron Bay.

I want to make sure that visitors get the best advice about Byron Bay Surf Lessons.

At Style Surfing we are a Long time, Local family that have are owned & operated our surfing school longer than any other and proud to be the Best school in Byron Bay and not worry about being the biggest. 

We are a True Local School that is licenced by the Byron Shire Council, Cape Byron National Parks and the Byron Bay Marine Park to surf in the great waves of Byron Bay.

I have surfed around Byron Bay since the 1970’s, I have instructed “Surf Lifesaving Skills” since 1983 and Instructed “Surf Board Riding Skills” since 1986 & No-One else has this experience in Byron Bay…

I worked at Maddog Surfboard Factory with my brother John since the 1980s’ in Byron Bay where we had 3 surf shops in town. My bro has since retired and goes fishing & surfing everyday.Haha…

On your lesson you will have all Surfboards, Wetsuits & Rashshirts supplied and we also have free photos taken with you on the Beach.

Style Surf School has a maximum of only 10 surfers per class with 2 Instructors. 1:5 Ratio.

It’s always “Happy Days” surfing with Style Surfing School. Gaz.

Group Lessons for $60.

We have lessons at 9 am & 1 pm Daily.

GIFT VOUCHERS FOR CHRISTMAS $60 for the Group Lesson in Town.

We ‘DO NOT’ have a ‘BOOK NOW BUTTON’ Just Pay On The Day that you come surfing with us.

This is so there is NO PROBLEM for you if the lesson is cancelled with dangerous surf.

You will get a 100% REFUND.

Our surfing service is the best because we make sure you stand up & surf the waves straight away during your very first lesson & we even cater for “Intermediate Surfers” in our group lessons also.


Byron Bay has 4 other Surf Schools that DO NOT have a Byron Bay licence to teach Group Lessons in Byron Bay & advertise Byron Bay when you google it.

These other operators need drive away from Byron Bay for at least ’30 minutes each way’ to get to Ballina Shire where they do have a licence.

The waves are nothing like the safe surf we get inside Cape Byron & this is wasting your time on a bus…

$300 for a 2 hour private Lesson & Add $100 per extra Surfer….but I highly recommend my group lessons as they are cheaper with the same Instruction in the surf.

I also teach “Experienced surfers to become Surf Instructors”


If you want to become a Surfing Instructor you should have a minimum of 5 years Surfing Experience. Forget about the 3 month course some schools offer as that is rubbish.. How can you learn to be a surfing instructor in 3 months from a beginner to a teacher??????????.

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.




Happy Days & catch you in the Waves.
