MINI WAHINE 6-WEEK SURF CLASS
AGE 5 - 8 | STARTING TERM 4 // OCT 20TH
*FIRST CLASS FOR 2021 SUMMER SEASON*
Here's EVERYTHING You Need To Know...
The Mini Wahine Class is all about building water confidence, surf safety, fun & games, and a whole lot'a surfing.
Our mission with this 6-week class is to get your Wahine introduced to surfing, and learning to love it in a safe, nurturing, non-judgemental environment, surrounded by likeminded girls.
We want to share our passion of surfing and the ocean with you, and arm your Wahine with the fundamentals of surfing technique, equipment and water safety, so that they can stay safe in the water.
The class runs for 1 hour - from 3:30 to 4:30. And our meet up location is: Opposite 38 Marine Parade, Mount Maunganui (ref image a little further down the page)

What people have been saying...
"Our girls had an amazing week at Wahine surf camp with House of Surf! Loz and Rowan and all the instructors went the extra mile to make sure they learned new skills while having loads of fun. Can’t recommend highly enough, thanks so much guys"
My 11 year old daughter loves the surf classes and holiday lessons! Her confidence and skills have grown and the coaches are wonderful.
Rebecca and Cam Wasley/
"Our daughter absolutely loved her week at the House of Surf camp. The coaches were supportive and super friendly. She loved the fun games and the coaches really helped her gain confidence and improve her surfing skills. Would highly recommend to anyone."
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.
The 8-Pillar Method
Here's Where We'll Meet
Opposite 38 Marine Parade, Mount Maunganui
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.
