THE START OF A SURFING JOURNEY...
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 young boys - 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 for young boys to take these first baby-steps into the sport of surfing.
Our Micro Boys Squad takes a small group of young boys - at similar stages in the learning cycle - through a weekly squad format, where they'll connect with other young likeminded groms, 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 to your boy/s 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 TO EXPECT
Each week the group of young boys will be given fun challenges and instruction to build up their skills and confidence.
Over time they'll build up a solid technical surfing foundation - something they can take with them for life.
Sure, our aim is to arm your 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 boy 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...
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 and intimidated, and lack a lot of confidence (don’t worry, we’ve been there too).
Which is why we’ve created these squads in the way we have;
Your son will be in a group with boys at the same age & level in the surfing journey as him, in a nurturing, massively supportive environment throughout.
WHY CHOOSE THE HOUSE OF SURF?
The House of Surf is a surf school with a twist...
...we steer clear of cookie-cutter tuition, and are bold and innovative in the way we teach - constantly looking for the new and exciting ways to teach the sport we love.
We live and breath the concept of individualised coaching in a group environment and we're constantly at the forefront of innovation in the sport.
Our trained instructors have helped literally hundreds of kids take their first steps into the sport of surfing, guiding, and nurturing each child along the way.
Which is why we've become the fastest growing surf school in Mount Maunganui (possibly even NZ), and why we're rated #1 on Google too

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."
"Great lesson with House of Surf! I really benefitted from a private lesson with one to one advice. The instructor was friendly and a great teacher. Thank you so much!"
"Wonderful experience for our daughter - instructors make great connections with the kids and keep it fun! Noticed a huge improvement in our daughters confidence after 5 lessons. Highly recommend Loz and the team at House of Surf!"
"Such an amazing company! Organised a group lesson for us very last minute and we had an absolutely amazing time! Dan was great, we learnt a lot and had a lot of fun! Would 100% recommend!"
"I had such a great time on my House of Surf Lesson. Teacher was really great, catering the lesson to my ability and encouraging me to learn and progress. Was really fun would highly recommend!"
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 kids in all areas of their lives.
Which is why we centre all our programs around our unique eight-pillar system that focuses on far more than technique alone, to create a safe and nurturing space for kids to push themselves and enjoy everything surfing has to offer.
The 8-Pillar Method
Unfortunately we don't offer refunds I'm afraid.
Due to the nature of the squad running though term time with set dates unfortunately we won't be able to offer any make-up classes for any sessions missed.
Yes, we supply soft top surfboards.
We have a range of 6,7,8,9 foot boards available. These can be hired for a small fee added to your purchase through checkout.
Yes, we do supply wetsuits.
*We have a small supply of wetsuits so get in touch early to reserve one.
The squad runs irrespective of the surf and we take the opportunity to work on all 8 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.
Our Squads run in all weather conditions, except lightning
Yes, we really do embrace the elements here at the House of Surf.
All classes are to be paid in full before commencing.
No money is excepted on the beach.
All participants must be able to swim. A moderate fitness level is sufficient.
Our normal meeting point is: Opposite number 33 Marine Parade, Mount Maunganui. However, this is subject to change depending on the conditions.
Once you're booked in you'll get all the relevant info on how to stay up to date with the location for your class.
You'll need to bring your surfboard, wetsuit (if it's cold), a water bottle and sunscreen.
If you're running late we may have shifted the class to the beach so walk to the beach to find us.
The class will start on time for the students that have arrived, so just let the coach know you've arrived and hop into the session.
Right now we're running them over three terms, but we'd love to run them through winter too, just got to see how things go.
