The Hibiscus Surf School team is passionate about surfing and living in beautiful Mount Maunganui, New Zealand.

Ray, Manager and Good Vibe Connoisseur, is originally from California and has been surfing the world since he's left. Ray is passionate about the positive affectsurfing has on life and being able to share that stoke.

Rebecca, Owner, grew up competing and coaching skiing at the Olympic level. She always wanted to learn to surf and moved to Mount Maunganui to make her dream come true. She found the Mount to be perfect for achieving her goals and feels very lucky to be able to teach surfing to hundreds of students every summer.
