Mahia goes surfing last year at the Girls Go Surfing Day in Byron Bay

The annual Girls Go Surfing Day event, hosted locally by Surfing Byron Bay, is now in its twenty-fourth year. Held this year on December 7 and 8, the Girls Go Surfing Day invites girls of all ages to head down to the beach and have a go at learning to surf. This event is the longest-running all-girl event held in the country.

‘Surfing is a great sport for all ages,’ says Serena Adams of Surfing Byron Bay. ‘Girls, mums, aunties and grandmothers are invited to come down and have a go. It’s held on our beautiful Byron Bay beaches; it’s healthy and it’s fun. Local accredited surf coaches from Go Surfing Byron Bay provide lessons in a safe environment where you will learn the basics of surfing while having a great time.’

Lesson price for the event is $55, which will include one two-hour learn-to-surf lesson and equipment, plus each participant will receive official event bag and t-shirt.
