Level 1 Surfers

This programme is designed for kids aged 9-16 who have their own surfboard and are beginning to paddle into their own unbroken waves.

Parents may be required to go in the water if necessary.


Each session will begin at Hart St beach reserve, Marine Parade in Mount Maunganui and will run from 3:30 pm – 5 pm.

If the surf is too big at Hart St, we’ll relocate to Main Beach, Mount Maunganui.

Each weekly session will be run by one of our qualified coaches.


For coaching sessions, please bring whatever you’d usually take for a surf.

  • Surfboard with a good wax job
  • Appropriate wetsuit for the weather
  • Clothes to change into after your surf session 
  • Surf watch, if you have one
  • Towel
