Level 1 Surfers

This programme is designed for both boys and girls aged 8-11 who have their own surfboard and are beginning to paddle into their own waves.

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


Each session will begin at Grove Ave in Mount Maunganui and will run from 7.30 am – 9 am.

We will meet on the grass where Grove Ave meets Marine Parade and find the best bank for the day’s session from there.

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

Each session will be run by our qualified coach Raiha Ensor.


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
  • Sunscreen
  • Drinking water
