A TWO-DAY INTENSIVE SURFING COURSE FOR WOMEN...
So you've mastered the basics - you can catch your own whitewater waves, and you can get to your feet consistently...
...but then what?
Well, it's now time for that tricky transition phase away from catching whitewater waves, and taking your first baby-steps out the back, to begin catching and riding green unbroken waves once and for all.
Now you might have been surfing for years but stagnated, or are pretty new to the sport.
But this, is where surfing starts to get REAL fun!
However it's not easy, and this transition can be fraught with fear, uncertainty & doubt, with all those annoying inner insecurities bubbling to the surface.
And you know what, it's this inner self talk that holds so many of us women back, but we're committed to changing that narrative, and we're committed to helping you though this awkward stage.
AND WE'VE GOT AN EPIC SOLUTION TO DO JUST THAT
An intensive two-day technical surfing course, taking a small group of likeminded women - at the same stage in the learning cycle - through a hyper-structured course where you’ll learn exactly what you need to know - at the right time, and in the right order - to empower you with the skills to progress as quickly as possible.
Through our detailed progression roadmap our first class surf instructors will break down all of the technical, complicated surf jargon and deliver it to you in a step by step format that’s super easy to follow, all in a 100% non-judgemental learning environment.
Technical surfing, taught simply!
Holding your hand, guiding and nurturing you through the entire two-day course.
And if that’s not enough, we have a fully fledged online learning portal (yours for life) - with detailed breakdowns, home workouts & practices - that compliments everything you'll be learning throughout the weekend, and a boat load more.
Yours to keep, to take away with you to practice and refine your skills
WHAT TO EXPECT
In the Progressor Course we assume you know the basics - how to catch whitewater waves and pop to your feet consistently - so we do away with covering the absolute basic stuff.
And we concentrate our focus instead on the next stage, the quickening, where we'll iron-out any bad habits you've picked up, and set out on the structured course journey.
You'll be guided through our 5-step program teaching you the skills to:
This is where surfing starts to get really frickin exciting!
We'll help you learn which waves to select and why, and more importantly which waves to avoid!
You'll learn the techniques to navigate through broken waves with ease to make it out the back.
You'll also learn exactly how to take off on an unbroken wave, pop-up instantly, and successfully navigate the drop - the right way.
With each session seamlessly building on the last, you'll accelerate your transition to surfing green unbroken waves - all with the correct fundamentals - right from the off-set.
*This course has been built from the ground up to guide you through this phase in your progression, and our expert team are here to help you every step of the way.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL...
NON JUDGEMENTAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
We understand how it feels to navigate within a male dominated environment where you feel stifled, self conscious, intimidated, and lack a lot of confidence (don’t worry, we’ve been there too).
Which is why we’ve created these weekend courses in the way we have.
You’ll be in a small group with likeminded women at the same level in the surfing journey as you, in a nurturing, massively supportive environment throughout.
A STRUCTURED, OUTCOME-ORIENTED COURSE
All of the course material has been structured in a way to guide you through the key progression steps to help you improve - with the correct fundamentals - as fast as possible.
ALL SIZES & ABILITIES
We welcome you all.
We've helped women of all ages - from fifteen to sixty+.
All abilities & agilities too.
We're here to give you the support and the guidance you need.
ONLINE COURSE - YOURS TO KEEP
We've created an entire online learning portal that compliments everything that you'll be taught over the two day course.
Detailed breakdowns, graphics and tear downs that you can come back to again and again to refresh and take at your own pace.
WHY CHOOSE THE HOUSE OF SURF?
The House of Surf was originally founded on the basis of helping more women get into the sport of surfing, to help them feel nurtured and less intimidated in the water.
And this core mission is still at the forefront of everything we do today.
Having helped literally hundreds of women in the Bay of Plenty alone (not to mention many more overseas) take their first steps into the sport of surfing, plus being home to the biggest community of women surfers in NZ (830+), we are THE go-to place for women to learn to surf - and improve - in the whole of New Zealand

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 courses around our unique eight-pillar system that focuses on far more than technique alone, to create a safe, nurturing space for you to push yourself and enjoy everything surfing has to offer.

In such an event we'll organise transport to take the whole crew to the new location to make sure we can get the event run.
We'll be surfing between 3 & 4 times over the weekend.
