SKATE CONDITIONS IN MOUNT MAUNGANUI & WHAT TO EXPECT

The Bay of Plenty - and Mount Maunganui in particular - has one of the best climates in the country.

With the Kai Mai's taking the brunt of the precipitation in the region, the area is kept dry more often than not - perfect conditions for skateboarding.


SAFE AND SECURE

Unlike a lot of city skateparks that can be a little rough and run down to say the least, Mount Maunganui's skateparks are clean, safe and friendly places for kids to hang out.

We welcome you all. We've helped thousands of people of all ages - from *15 to 60+.

All abilities & agilities too. We're here to give you the support and the guidance you need.

Please note: Children under ten years need to be supervised by a non-surfing adult in our group lessons.

I am nervous & Not A strong swimmer , is that ok?

Our beginner lessons take place in waist deep water and Mount Maunganui Beach is extremely safe. Our maximum group size is 1-8 so your instructor will be very close at all times.

We teach a ration of 1:8. We have found this ratio to be the best for offering a personal and intimate surfing experience with us. 

For quality, value and fun.

What do I need to bring?

All the equipment you need for surfing is provided! Some suggestions include casual swimwear to wear under your wetsuit, a towel, and plenty of water and sunscreen (we have both if you forget).

What time should i arrive for the lesson?

We ask that you show up 15 minutes before lesson start time. This is to fit you with the wetsuit, sign waivers and meet your instructor. This time allows you to get the routine stuff out of the way, so we can get you in the water shredding sooner!

What happens if it's raining?

Your activity will run rain or shine.

Yes, we really do embrace the elements here at the House of Surf.

What if i have surfed before?

We have five different levels of lessons from first time catching a wave to outback and trimming a six footer.

whats the difference between a group or private lesson?

Our lesson times vary every day depending upon the tides. Check our timetable here.

whats happens if the surf is big and scary?

We will only take you in conditions that are safe for learning. Most of our beginner lessons start in chest deep water.  We will monitor the waves before and during your lesson and if at any time we see that it’s approaching too big, we will get everyone out of the water and reschedule.

Safety and fun are our highest priorities, if at any time you do not feel safe or are not having fun, we will stop and see what we can do!
