Known for its laid back vibes and electric nightlife, Byron Bay is a surfer’s dream with an epic selection of long dreamy point breaks, super consistent beach breaks and miles of uncrowded coastline to explore.


The iconic Byron Bay and Lennox head region has been attracting surfers for over 60 years  – and for good reason!  The Northern Rivers has it all, from beginner waves to freight train point breaks and reef breaks to river waves, there’s something for everyone.

With a 180 degree swell window, wind protection from near all angles and warm water temps, there is no better place in Australia for consistent surf. Within a 50km stretch of coastline we have literally hundreds of waves –  all incredible on their day!

Our guides and surf coaches know and live for the area and will make sure you are in the right spot at the right time!

Contact us if you would like some more info about our beloved home breaks, or simply want more information on the region.
