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.

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.
