HEATHER MACKEY/

CAMBRIDGE

"Awesome experience!! Loz has an infectious positive vibe that makes every lesson fun.


She's a great teacher and genuinely wants you to succeed as much as you do.


I felt safe and supported the whole time and met some great girls along the way."

RACHEL GLASIER / 

MT MAUNGANUI

"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.


Do it!!"

Claire Henry/

"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."

Meet Your Coaches

Head Coach - Lauren Ringer


Lauren (Loz) is the proud and passionate owner and operator of the House of Surf.  Loz is a former professional surfer & surf coach, and has been operating the House of Surf since 2017.


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.

A fully-qualified and certified Surf Instructor, Life Guard and Life Coach with over 10 years experience; Lauren has taught surfers around the world. 

Gabi Paul

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 double 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.

Anna Brock

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.

Dan Harmon

Nothing phases this guy…

A perpetual traveller and literally the keenest surf ever!

Dan has traveled and surfed his way around the world - from deep Indonesia to Sri Lanka, Hawaii to South Africa.

His stoke for surfing is infectious, and it's this love of the sport that has led him to coach in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

He’s a joy to be around & a key player in House of Surf team.
