THE START OF A SURFING JOURNEY...
NOT SURE WHAT LEVEL YOU ARE? CLICK HERE.
Surfing has got to be one of the healthiest sports a child can do; fresh air, sunshine, and an immersion in nature - it doesn't get any better.
But, for many - if not all - the prospect of surfing is fraught with fear.
The fear of waves, wiping out, and being held under water.
And, it's often at this point in the surfing journey where a child can be put off for life if they have even the slightest negative experience.
And that’s where we step in…
At the House of Surf we understand how pivotal this stage can be, and we've created the perfect learning environment to take these first baby-steps into the sport of surfing.
Our Kids Beginner Squad takes a small group - at similar stages in the learning cycle - through a weekly squad format, where they'll connect with other kids, learn new skills each week, build confidence, and improve.
All in a safe learning environment with qualified surf instructors breaking down all of the technical, complicated surf jargon, delivering it in a fun, easy to understand format that's super easy for kids to follow.
And don't worry, we know how quickly kids at this age lose concentration and that's why we've structured these squads in a way that's filled with fun, games and excitement throughout.
What's more, we have a step by step online course to compliment, expand, and reinforce all in-water surfing, drip fed out to students each week.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each week the group will be taken step by step through our structured curriculum. With each week building on the last students will learn the right techniques at the right times to develop their skills as fast as possible - building ocean confidence and awareness in the process.
Over time they'll build up a solid technical surfing foundation - something your child will have with them for life.
Sure, our aim is to arm each child with the technical skills to be able to catch their own waves and ride them to the beach.
But, our biggest goal - above all else - is to empower each child with the confidence to be in the waves, and - more importantly - instil the love of surfing into their lives.
A FEW THINGS THE GROUP WILL BE LEARNING...
INCLUDED: SIX WEEK STEP-BY-STEP ONLINE COURSE
Alongside all beach theory and in-water sessions each student will gain access to our online course material to compliment, reinforce, and expand upon all in-person tuition.
Revisit lesson material time and time again with lifetime access, 24/7.
New in depth material to follow each week.
Each week new course content will be released to compliment in-water tuition.
Learn at your own pace.
We all learn in different ways, at different speeds. Delve into the course material in your own time, whenever it suits.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL...
NON JUDGEMENTAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
We understand how it feels to start a whole new sport where you feel self conscious, intimidated, and lack confidence (don’t worry, we’ve been there too).
Which is why we’ve created these squads in the way we have;
Your child will be in a group of kids at the same level in the surfing journey, in a nurturing, massively supportive environment throughout.
WHY CHOOSE THE HOUSE OF SURF?
WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY...
As a surf school we take pride in doing things a little differently, being daring, and not being afraid to challenge the status quo.
And it's this same thinking that's led us to become the fastest growing surf school in NZ, with a roaring community hundreds strong, an incredible team, and some cutting teaching methods.
With structured progression pathways - from absolute beginner (level 1), right through to advanced (level 4) - we have a proven roadmap for all our students to follow that's tried and battle tested.
SMALL COACH TO STUDENT RATIO
Quality, effective coaching can only be done in smaller group environments, which is why we have hard cap's with low student to coach ratios across everything we offer.
Less students per coach equals more one on one time, more individualised tuition, and faster improvements.
SURFING TO TARGETS
Our mission is to always be taking you to the next step, and that means clear, defined targets for each and every session we teach.
We're not here to just push you into waves, hoot, holla, and lavish praise.
We're here to equip you with the skills and knowledge to take your surfing to the next level - every time we hit the water.
INDIVIDUALISED COACHING IN A GROUP ENVIRONMENT
Whatever your surfing level or ability, we always individualise the coaching you receive.
Sure, we cover things in a group environment as well, but we always make sure that each individual surfer is getting bespoke advice unique to them, with clear actionable steps to improve.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING...
Highly recommend the Micro Girls program.
Loz is an experienced teacher and loves sharing the froth with kids!
Our 6yr old loved it and her surfing progressed every week and is hanging out to do it again!
RACHEL GLASIER /
"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.
"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."
