surf school

This bay is the perfect place to learn to surf as there is always small surf in the corner of the bay.

Most of my students are first time surfers and I like to teach them in the small green unbroken waves, not in the big white water as most surfing schools do. It's much harder that way.

We operate Oct 1st-May 1st. 7 days a week in front of the Curio Bay Campground Store, 601 Waikawa-Curio Bay Rd

About your surfing instructor:

Surfing is my life and I have been surfing this area for over 20 years working and surf coaching students at Curio Bay for 15 years. I love teaching both beginners and learners wanting to progress from longboards to shortboards or Stand Up Paddle.
