Have you ever dreamed of learning to surf? You CAN do it!
We have taught hundreds of people to surf, of all shapes and sizes, from ages 4 to 74. Teaching is our passion and we are very experienced at “breaking down your barriers” and most importantly, making it a fun and memorable experience for you.
Mount Maunganui is well known as one of the best places in New Zealand to learn to surf. Take advantage of this amazing playground and experience the joy of riding waves (even if you’re new to the ocean)!
If you’re new to surfing, you can join our “Aloha” Group (lesson held daily at 1:30pm, conditions permitting). All of your equipment is provided, including a high quality soft-top surfboard and full length wetsuit. The class begins with a 20 minute beach theory, where you’ll learn ocean safety and awareness, surfboard orientation, the paddle technique, and pop-up technique. Your instructor will demonstrate how to catch waves and ride them to the beach. Then you’ll be taken into the water, where your instructor will push you onto small waves, provide feedback, and make sure you have plenty of fun. By the end of the class you will be surfing the waves! 2 hours: $75 NZD Click here to buy the “Aloha” lesson.
The second option we offer beginners is the “Mount” Lesson. This is a semi-private lesson of just 2-4 people total. You can bring your own group, or join an existing group. A great option for those wanting more personalized instruction. First time surfers are welcome, as well as those who have surfed a bit already but are looking for a refresher. The Mount is fast becoming the most popular lesson option at Hibiscus. 2 hours: $95 NZD Click here to buy the “Mount” lesson.
