3 Hour Surf Lesson.

West Coast surf has been established at Tauranga bay on the beautiful West Coast of the South Island for the past 18 years.

This beach provides both first timers with a safe and invigorating environment to learn in, as well as providing some world class waves for the more experienced surfers.

What others say: "Hi, I just wanted to write to you to say THANK YOU! My Dad loved his lesson last month; I think it was the highlight of his trip to New Zealand. Mark was a great teacher and everything was just perfect – the rain even stopped just as they got in the water."

Great surf... and fantastic wawes.

Don't be afraid of water, when you book this experience with Mark. The wawes are big, and you might swallow some water - in my case a lot of water. I've newer tried surfing before, but Mark was a great teacher, and really made an effort to make us all feel safe, and capable of handling the wawes. Would highly recommend it for all, but you need to be a little fit, as it's hard work to learn to surf. Thank you Mark, from Denmark!!!

Thank you Rene, you had an exciting time because the waves were challenging. You did very well because the waves were challenging. You succeeded because you wanted to. I am the guy who is there to help because I love it. Tell all your friends. Enjoy Life. Mark

Very interesting and loads of fun!

The coach explained to us how the waves work and why the surface of the water looks different in some places for us to read the sea. That is important to learn to surf the safe way. We also had a long time in the water where he gave is good tips what to improve! I loved it :)

Best lesson I ever had

Mark is an incredible teacher, he won't hold back on telling you everything you need to know to improve. I've had another surf lesson in the past and it was nowhere near as in depth and well thought out as this! We even learnt about the tide and wave patterns. We had such a great day! Thanks Mark!
