Byron Bay Surf Festival


Byron Bay Surf Festival accommodation

The Byron Bay Surf Festival is a three day fusion of surf culture, art, music, film and lifestyle and we believe that Byron Bay is the perfect location to hold such a weekend of all things surf. The annual Byron Bay Surf Festival focuses on the creative culture within surfing. The festival is held in February (dates to be announced). 

Wax your boards, grab your friends and head to Byron Bay this summer! The festival features over 25 different free and ticketed events, including; surfing, art, music, film, yoga, surfboard design, markets, fashion, presentations, literature, history, and  the highly popular surf sessions at Wategos beach.


The Byron Bay Surf Festival creates a platform that brings together both surfers and those interested in surfing in a celebration of local, national and international surf culture. To showcase, educate and support the surf culture that we love and live, to grow and evolve, an ultimately, to move towards a more sustainable and regenerative industry and lifestyle… and have a good time doing it! 

The festival is within the town centre of Byron Bay and hosts events such as: Art Shows, live music, surf films, surf workshops & presentations, surf lifestyle markets, surf sessions, demos and surf swap meets.
