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.  

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 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.

What happens if there's no surf?

We encourage surfers not to get too picky about the forecast because perfect waves aren’t necessarily best for coaching.

The camp runs irrespective of the surf and we take the opportunity to work on the other 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. 

What do I need to bring?

If you have your own equipment then we suggest for you to bring it. Bring food, water bottle and appropriate sun protection. 

Where do we meet?

We'll meet daily at the beach access opposite 38 Marine Parade, Mount Maunganui.

How do you teach the SURF LESSONS?

The  lessons have a mixture of land and water based tuition. 

What kind of areas of surfing will we be working on?

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.
