Learn to Surf

With many of the surf schools reopening for the warmer days ahead, Easter is a great time to learn to surf. With quieter beaches and sea temperatures on the rise, it’s a great time to take on the waves for the first time or enhance your skill if you have surfed before.

We recommend Woolacombe Surf Centre based in Woolacombe who can provide group and personal lessons and supply all the kit!

Byron offers 10% off Woolacombe Surf School as part of our Partners scheme.
