To Women in Water.

Founder, Belén Alvarez Kimble learned to surf at 15 while living in California. After graduating high school she worked at Water Girl, the world’s first all-female surf shop and taught surfing at Surf Diva, the first all-girls surf school. She went on to teach for all-girl surf schools in Costa Rica, Canada and Hawaii. Her talents in the water and her passion for the sport led her to a career as a Billabong-sponsored professional surfer/free surfer. She spent the next 15 years travelling the world filming for movies and magazines promoting women’s surfing.

In 2007, after moving from Hawaii to Australia, Belén founded Salty Girls Surf School. It brought together the things she loves most: the ocean and inspiring women to overcome adversity to achieve their goals and dreams.

Since then, Salty Girls Surf School has introduced women of all ages to the sport and spirit of surfing in an encouraging, fun environment. Belén is also passionate about the environment and helps to educate students about environmental issues and supports companies doing their part manufacturing healthy, ethically and environmental friendly products.

Are you a Salty Girl? If you share our ethos and want to learn to surf or progress your surfing in a nurturing, happy environment, come and join us at Salty Girls Surf School.

Each surf lesson, whether a private or group lesson, is specifically designed to cater to your needs, ability and goals.  We can also organise private group lessons; Hens parties and corporate lessons. Whatever your needs, we can provide you with a fun and memorable surfing experience.

We are located on the beautiful far north coast of NSW, only a 15-minute drive south of the Gold Coast /Coolangatta Airport & 30 minutes north of Byron Bay. We operate on several beaches according to conditions but most lessons are run at Kingscliff main beach, on the corner of Moss Street & Marine Parade and right next to beautiful Cudgen Creek. It is a great spot for a picnic after your lesson or you might like to try one of the many lovely cafes and restaurants a short walk away.
