The Women On Waves program is designed by Surfing Byron Bay for local women by women, and it aims to help women and girls feel comfortable in the water and be able to learn to surf without the pressure of keeping up with, or keeping out of the way of, the boys until they find their sea legs.

The WOW is a three-week program which helps with building confidence in the water, wave skills and knowledge as well as being great for fitness.

All abilities from beginner to intermediate are able to participate, the next program starts on March 21.
