I aim to help you to stand up & surf your first waves in your first lesson! Lessons are individual & safe, held in English and German at NZ's “Top Beach” in the breath-taking scenery of Mount Maunganui with perfect surf conditions for learners.


$60 - $90

Affordable private & small group lessons are designed for you to get the most out of your session in a very safe & fun environment. Lessons include wetsuit & surf board hire, demonstrations plus a photo of you. You will not only learn how to stand up, but the essential skill to understand how your body performance effects your surfing.

I am with you in the waves to give you immediate instructions & feedback, in German if preferred. Whether private lesson or shared adventure with friends or family (up to 4 students) your surf lesson will be loaded with fun & action, becoming an unforgettable memory of your holiday.
