Mount Surf Academy



Based in beautiful Mount Maunganui, we offer surf courses for beginners and improvers in a safe, fun and relaxed atmosphere.

We take great pride in personalising all our surf courses, and endeavour to provide some of the smallest Instructor:Student ratios of any surf school in the area.

Mount Maunganui Surf Academy is owned and run by Andy Collins - a surfer with over 20 years experience. Originally from the UK, Andy has surfed all over the world and is a regular competitor on the Hyundai Pro Longboard tour of New Zealand.

At Mount Maunganui Surf Academy we teach surfing and surfing only. This means we can concentrate on teaching to the best level possible and guarantee you will find the whole experience a life changing event! Our coaches are specialist Surf Coaches and qualified to the highest level. We use soft top boards which are very forgiving and provide much of the performance of a traditional fibreglass board. As you improve we have a selection of mini-mals from 7 to 8 foot.

We also have 9ft long boards for you to try. We provide high quality, full length summer and winter wetsuits.

All Instructors at the academy hold a Surf Lifesaving New Zealand recognised qualification and are also trained in basic first aid techniques.

Wetsuit and board hire included in the lesson price.
