Salty Girls Surf School

Who we are

In 2007, after moving from Hawaii to Australia, Belén Alvarez Kimble founded Salty Girls Surf School, Australia’s first owned and operated all-female school. It brought together the things she loves most: the ocean and inspiring women, teens and young girls to overcome adversity, and achieve their goals and dreams of learning to surf while offering a safe space to show they belong and build a community for women to connect with other like-minded women.

what we do

We offer everything from your first-time surf experience to professional performance coaching and fine-tuning by one of our Professional Qualified Female Surf Coaches. First-time lessons are taught in waist-deep water with small groups and high coach-to-student ratios. You will learn everything from handing your equipment to catching your own waves in a fun, safe and supportive environment with the understanding that women, teens and kids are different, physically, and emotionally and need that support from other women.

where we are

Located on the beautiful Tweed Coast of NSW, only a 25-minute drive south of the Gold Coast/Coolangatta Airport & 45 minutes north of Byron Bay. As we are a mobile school, we operate on several beaches according to conditions but most sessions are run at Cabarita Beach or Hastings Point.
