Your Instructor

Hey, I'm Loz and I'm a ex-pro surfer from Noosa, Australia. I'm a fully qualified and certified Surf Instructor and Life Coach and have over 20 years experience teaching surfers around the world. 

About our coaching?

Our surf coaching is centred around an holistic approach to learning how to surf. 

We use surfing as our medium to empower women to become their fullest potential, with the hope of creating wellbeing in all areas of their lives. 

We view surfing, not just about popping up or cutbacks but more about what is does to each and everyone of us on a soul level. 

At the core of all of our coaching we stand for know more, do more which translate too (with more knowledge, awareness and understanding you'll have more fun out in the water). 

Our surf coaching incorporates 8 key pillars all of which are an embodiment of the mind, body and soul, with a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your own potential.

8 key pillars to Learning to Surf efficiently

  2. Sign the indemnity form and send it back to (alternatively print it out and hand it in at the start of your class).
  3. Download The Surf Book (goals of progression)
  4. The day before we will email you letting you know what beach we will be meeting at based on the conditions
  5. Read through the F.A.Q's


Can I turn up and pay?

All classes are to be paid in full before commencing. 

No money is excepted on the beach. 

What level of fitness do you require?

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

Do you supply equipment?

No, sorry not at this time. If you do wish to hire a surbfoard or wetsuit I can recommend these places:

1. Mount Backpackers

2. South Pacific Surf School

Can I buy a class pass as a gift?

Absoultely. This is a great gift for women surfers who are looking to imporve their surfing.

Can I expect to improve my surfing?

Good surf tuition is fundemental to your surf progression. These classes are a great way to identify your weaknesses and build on your strenghts. 

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

My name is Loz and my number is 027 640 6112. 

What's your refund policy?

For all our classes we don't offer a refund policy. Instead we offer a credit note. 

Do I need to sign a disclaimer?

Yes. One disclaimer for the season is enough.

What happens if there's no surf?

The class runs irrespective of the surf and we take the opportunity to work on the other 7 pillars of surfing. 

From balance training to skateboarding drills to fitness routines to paddling technique in the flat water. 

Sometimes we even jump into the sea to practise our breathing. 

Flat days give us an opportunity to work on the other areas often overlooked in surfing. 

What do I need to bring?

You'll need to bring your surfboard, wetsuit (if it's cold), a water bottle and sunscreen.

Where do we meet?

The location is mobile, between Mount Maunganui and Papamoa.

This is to help ensure we are surfing the best condtions possible. 

How to do you teach the classes?

The Intermediate lessons have a mixture of land and water based tuition. 

*Sometimes the surf pro may have some video coaching. 

All beginner lessons are taught with your instructor in the water. 

What happens if I'm running late for the class?

Through the group SMS, you'll be notified of where we are that morning or afternoon. 

When you arrive, jump into the class and we'll begin. 

Are the classes held all year round?

No. Our classes run in the warmer months. 

Between Sep/ Oct - March/ April.

Are the classes structured? 

Yes to a certain degree. 

Which ever class your in, the objective is by the end of the season to be able to move up to the next class/ level. 

If you're in the The Jedi class you can choose to return as a wise student once again, or take the confidence and knowledge with you to be able to teach yourself. 

As with all tuition here at the House of Surf, our priorty is to make sure surfng is fun and enjoyable for everyone.
