The Process...

All weekend long, our coaches will be dissecting your surfing, unraveling any bad habits you've picked up, and breaking things down with actionable instruction, and a clear roadmap for you to improve.


Our coaches will carry out a full breakdown of your surfing.

Find out what's holding you back

We'll uncover any bad habits or blindspots that could be holding your surf progression back.

Clear progression road map

Over the weekend we'll develop a bespoke, clear roadmap so that you know exactly what you should be working on to improve.

Surf Video Analysis

If you want real, honest feedback of where your surfing is at right now, then look no further than video analysis.

With frame by frame breakdowns our coaches will be able to dissect your technique, find out what's holding you back, and give you a clear action-plan to get better.

Rapid Feedback Loop

Throughout the weekend our coaches will be giving you simple, actionable advice to speed up your progress.

Action, Analysis, Response...

...Rinse & repeat.

We call this the rapid feedback loop and it's an integral part of the weekend

1-ON-1 Tailor-Made Coaching

We keep the group sizes small, and the coach to student ratio small so that every student has ample access to the expert coaches at hand.

Giving our coaches plenty of time with each student to make rapid improvements.

Meet Your Coaches

Lauren Ringer (Founder)

Lauren grew up competing in Australia, before taking to the world stage of the WQS, travelling the world competing everywhere from Hawaii to South Africa, France to Huntington Beach.  

And since then, her mission has been to encourage more women to try surfing and to have them feel less intimidated, and included out in the water.

A fully-qualified and certified Surf Instructor, Life Guard and Life Coach with over 20 years experience; Lauren has taught surfers around the world. 

Rowan Clifford (Director)

The analytical mind amongst the group of coaches...

Rowan's 25+ years of surfing around the world - from Portugal, France, Hawaii, Indo, even India - shine through when coaching in the water.  

Helping to dissect complex technical techniques into simple, easy to digest chunks.

This is easier said than done!

A vibrant bottle of high-vibe energy, Rowan always manages to get the best out of his students.

Gabi Paul (Head Coach)

As comfortable cross-stepping and hanging-ten on her longboard as she is packing big tubes, and getting super technical on her shortboard…

…Gabi is the complete package.

Growing up in the wild seas of Piha, she’s gone to become the Triple New Zealand Longboard champ, and even finished runner up in the Shortboard division too!

At just 19 she’s packed a lot into her short time here - with travel to Europe, USA, Australia and much more under her belt already.

Always full of smiles, we’re thankful to have Gabi onboard the House of Surf as one of our top coaches.

Isi Bruun-Kiær (Senior Coach)

Nothing phases this girl…

A perpetual traveller and literally the keenest surf ever!

Isi has traveled and surfed his way around the world - from deep Indonesia to Sri Lanka, Hawaii to South Africa.

Her stoke for surfing is infectious, and it's this love of the sport that has led her to coach in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

She's a joy to be around & a key player in House of Surf team.

Anna Brock (Junior Coach)

If you’ve spent much time surfing in and around Mount Maunganui then you’ll for sure have seen Anna tearing it up in the water.

But it’s not just locally that you’ll catch her.

In fact you’ll probably see her tearing through the field of competitors as she claims another title.

A competitive machine, Anna is destined for big things.

But until then, we’re just stoked to have her onboard.

What people have been saying...



"Awesome experience!! Loz has an infectious positive vibe that makes every lesson fun.

She's a great teacher and genuinely wants you to succeed as much as you do.

I felt safe and supported the whole time and met some great girls along the way."



"I took part in a 6-week intermediate programme and it was awesome!! I learned new skills, gained much needed confidence to take off on steeper waves and left with some tangible things to work on.

Can't recommend highly enough!!!


Loz really knows her stuff and can diagnose quickly...plus she's just a dream boat to hang out with.

Do it!!"

Claire Henry/


"Loz at House of Surf is a natural surf coach, with an ability to fine tune and tweak your surfing with so much skill and expertise.

Loz brings a level of fun and authentic passion for surfing and especially women's surfing that is contagious and so fun!

I have gained so much from only six weeks, would highly recommend Loz's classes for any level."

In Case You're Wondering...

Is food or Accomodation included?

The weekend coaching event is tuition only.

Where you eat and where you stay is up to the discretion of each participant. 

Can I turn up and pay?

All surf coaching weekends are to be paid in full before commencing. 

No money is accepted on the beach. 

What level of fitness do you require?

All participants must be able to swim. A moderate fitness level is sufficient. 

Do you supply equipment?

Yes. We are able to supply soft top surfboards in a variety of sizes from 6 - 9ft.  Please let us know in advance if you'd like to reserve any of our equipment.

With regards to wetsuits, we do have a limited supply available so please check in early for availability.

Can I buy this weekend as a gift?

Absolutely. This is a great gift for women surfers who are looking to improve their surfing.

Can I expect to improve my surfing?


Good surf tuition is fundamental to your surf progression. These surf coaching weekends are a great way to identify your weaknesses and build on your strengths. 

What's your contact details so I can get my friends to join too?

Call us on +64 (0)27 640 6112. 

What's your refund policy?

We require full payment up-front to secure your spot.  

With regards to refunds:

- If you cannot attend the coaching weekend and you can give us notice in advance (minimum 14 days), then you're entitled to an 80% refund or credit note.

- For late cancelations (under 14 days), unfortunately no refunds can be issued.  

What happens if there's no surf?

We encourage surfers not to get too picky about the forecast because perfect waves aren’t necessarily best for coaching.

If conditions are un-surfable and we need to postpone the weekend, we’ll shift the event to the next available window.

We'll do our absolute best to notify you as soon as possible.

What do I need to bring?

If you have your own equipment then we suggest for you to bring it. Bring food, water bottle and appropriate sun protection. 

Where do we meet?

Classes are mobile between the Mount - Papamoa, with the primary location being Mussle Rock (near Main beach).

We'll let you know the day before where the meet up location will be for the next morning.

How do you teach the SURF LESSONS?

The  lessons have a mixture of land and water based tuition, video analysis and more.

Are the surf coaching weekends held all year round?

A bit of both.

We run the majority of our surf coaching weekends in the warmer months, between Sep/ Oct - March/ April..

However, we do have 'pop up' surf coaching weekends throughout the colder months. 

Are the weekends structured?

Yes to a certain degree. 

We like to plan or weekends, but sometimes the weather and the waves don't allow us to follow our itinerary. Hence the need to have a rough plan and make appropriate changes when necessary. 

What kind of areas of surfing will we be working on?

All our students will be at slightly different levels in their surf progression.  

Although we will be doing plenty of group learning, much of the coaching will be unique to each individual.

Our approach...

We approach surf coaching a little differently to most...

To us, surfing is more than just pop-ups and cutbacks.  Sure, these things are important (and we cover them in depth of course), but there's just so much more to surfing than this.

That's why we take a more holistic approach - using surfing as the medium to empower women in all areas of their lives.

Which is why we centre all our classes around our unique eight-pillar system that focuses on far more than technique alone, to create a safe an nurturing space for you to push yourself and enjoy everything surfing has to offer.
