Surf & Bike Hire Byron Bay
Like name suggests, Surf & Bike Hire Byron Bay serves as an excellent place to hire a surfboard while on holiday here. This business stocks everything from soft boards to performance quality as well as everything else you might need like wet suits, beach shelter, beach chair (so your family can watch!) and more.
Prices run from $18 for a half day to $85 for five days (anything beyond five days is $10 per day). So if you’ve already had lessons, been surfing for years or just had lessons yesterday and want to keep going, then you should be able to obtain what you need from Surf & Bike Hire.
If you’re coming to Byron Bay on holiday and you already love surfing, you should consider making a stop at McTavish Surfboards. Bob McTavish started the company in 1962 in Byron Bay and has stayed relevant in the surfing world ever since. A surfer would love to spend time drooling over the many types of boards McTavish has to offer, including the ability to have a board custom made.
Plus if you stop by you might get invited to one of the fun social gatherings the company is known for — where the car park is converted into a party venue, a projector is brought out, tunes are played and everyone talks surfing. Plus, neighbours Stone & Wood often join in and provide the refreshments! Even if you’re not looking to buy, you can even try out one of these boards by hiring it while you’re on holiday in Byron Bay.
Soul Surf School
Soul Surf School is a surf lessons business that also hires out surfboards and other related accessories. Here, you could start with lessons, especially if this is your first time trying out the sport or if it has been a long time since you tried to hang ten, and then move on to hiring a surfboard for the rest of your holiday.
Prices for surfboard hire range from $20 for two hours to $150 for the week (it is higher if you prefer a pro board such as Al Merrick, Emery, etc.). Have a look at the prices as well as all the other things Soul Surf provides (lessons and all that) to see if this might be a good fit for your group and its needs.
Black Dog Surfing
Like Soul Surf, this surf school also hires out surfboards. So it’s a great place to check out if some of the people in your group or family haven’t surfed before and would like to try. While you hire the surfboard, others could do the lessons. You’ll find all sorts of boards here that should be suitable for any level of surfing from beginner to advanced, and from kids to adults.
For example, soft board hires at Black Dog, which are great for kids and adults who just learning to surf, run anywhere from $20 for half a day to $110 for a week. Check out all the pricing on the various boards to find just the right one for you and your friends or family.
