LOCATION

Want perfect waves without feeling like a proverbial sardine surfing in a can?

With Kool Katz Surf School you'll experience remote and pristine coastline just to the south of Byron as we guide you on a 20 minute tour to the best and least crowded surfing spots. On a good day learn to surf with the dolphins, watch the whales or witness our indigenous and migratory birdlife from some excellent vantage points.

Kool Katz Surf School takes its surfari to where the waves are best. Whether it's Lennox Head or East Ballina, we bother to go that little bit extra to get you safe and uncrowded waves to learn to surf in.

With Kool Katz, you enjoy privileged access to Lennox National Surfing Reserve, 1 of only 4 nationally declared surfing reserves in New South Wales.

You also enjoy access to the sheltered inlets of Shaw's Bay, East Ballina. A surfing nursery for generations of grommets, Shaws Bay, Ballina offers perfect protection from the big swells. When it's “on’’ it delivers some of the best and safest learning waves on the east coast of Australia. That means when other Byron surf schools are cancelling, you’re ripping!

Our choice of surfing locations within the Lennox National Surfing Reserve or around Shaws Bay depend on carefully calculated variables to do with wind, swell size and direction, and tide.

  • Sometimes we'll surf at Seven Mile Beach in the heart of Lennox. This epic stretch wraps around to the famous headland of Lennox Point which is internationally acclaimed as one of the world's premier point breaks. Unspoilt by high density development, Lennox's main beach retains its village charm. Those of you who attend a surf lesson with us in Lennox will also enjoy the unexpected bonus of a post-surf dip in the healing waters of Lake Ainsworth.
  • On other days you may find yourself in waves a few kilometres further south at the panoramic and uncrowded Angels, Flat Rock or Shelley beaches. Glimpse the amazing birdlife that inhabits the surrounding area.
  • On a big swell, don't be discouraged from joining in! We'll surf in the protected inlets of East Ballina's picturesque Shaw's Bay. Here the waves are perfect for learners, and it's where the pelicans play.
