Here's EVERYTHING You Need To Know...

All Girls Holiday Surf Camp! 

The daily all-girls Surf Camp is packed full of sun, laughter, friendship, challenge and most importantly - Surfing!

Throughout this camp, we will be providing a safe, nurturing environment for young girls to hone their skills in the surf & increase their water confidence, whilst surrounded by a group of likeminded frothers.

We'll be covering everything from water confidence, surf drills & technique, surf safety, breathing exercises & fitness - with an overall focus of bringing young girls together to connect using the beach and ocean as our canvas.

During the sessions we'll cover:

  • Beach awareness, understanding the wind and waves, staying safe at the beach
  • Surfboard design and use, sea entry and correct surfboard handling
  • Catching waves with correct body and hand positioning
  • Paddling, learning the pop up technique and riding a wave
  • Speed, acceleration and breaking
  • Confidence tips and hacks to utilise in your surfing 
  • Front side and back side turns

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.

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. 

We also take the opportunity on flat days to do more games, snorkelling, crabbing, rafting etc.  We make it work regardless of the surf!  

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. 

*We aim to be in the water most of the day if possible, so warm wetsuits and warm clothing is always a good idea to maximise time in the water.

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?

Download the Surf Better chart here.

How DOES the booking process works?

Simply make a selection - either a day pass or weekly pass - go through the checkout and that's it.  We'll handle the rest at the beach.  

Here's where we meet

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.
