Your coaches for the weekend:

Lauren Ringer

Lauren (Loz) is the proud and passionate owner and operator of the House of Surf.  Loz is a former professional surfer & surf coach, and has been operating the House of Surf since 2017.

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 10 years experience; Lauren has taught surfers around the world. 

Gabi Paul

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 double 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.

Christina McGrath

Christina has been involved in teaching different sports - from snowboarding and mountain biking to rock climbing.

And it was her passion for the outdoors that also drew her toward environmental work in wetland restoration, education and outreach for a number of years. 

Since 2008, Christina has immersed herself in the wellness field. She's traveled the world specialising in yoganutritionsports massage and global adventures. In addition her degree in psychology, has been essential in helping to develop corporate wellbeing programs, online courses, 1-1 coaching and retreats to help busy professionals, recreational athletes - and anyone with an active lifestyle.

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 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."

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 unsurfable and we need to postpone the weekend, we’re more than happy to reschedule for a future date.

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 Hart St access.

How do you teach the SURF LESSONS?

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

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?

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.
