About Byron Bay Surf Festival


Present and maintain the culture of surfing, as an expression, art and lifestyle. Ensure that the festival reflects the values and creative culture of the Byron Bay region and community. 


Create a platform that brings together both surfers and those interested in surfing in a celebration of local, national and international surf culture. To showcase and support the surf culture that we love and live, to grow and evolve, and ultimately, to move towards a more sustainable industry and lifestyle.


Founded in 2010 the Byron Bay Surf festival showcases core and creative surf culture by presenting innovative and experiential ideas through unique and engaging experiences.

The multi-day festival activates several events including surfing, art, music, film, special guests and environmental aspects with an awareness and focus on sustainability, education and innovation.

The Byron Bay Surf Festival has been proud to have been declared a Deep Blue Event, (waste free), a 1% For The Planet member. It has a clear path towards reducing environmental and community impacts through education with a curated festival of likeminded vendors and special guests.
