Wellington Surf Lessons provide fun and enjoyable lessons for both beginner and advanced level students. Our experienced instructors have classes running every day the surf is up (summer and winter), so you can get the best opportunities to surf quality waves.
We run super fun group classes, private lessons, team building classes for local businesses and a special Schools Safe Surfing Program.
We also offer Beach Yoga Classes before our surf classes over summer! This will be the perfect way to warm up before a surf session. You can then take a surf lesson straight after or rent equipment.
Wellington Surf Lessons is based at Lyall Bay Beach and also goes mobile to catch the best surf conditions on the Kapiti Coast (Titahi Bay and Otaki) and Castlepoint, Wairarapa.
All our instructors have trained with Surfing New Zealand (SNZ) which courses are accredited by the International Surfing Association (ISA) and recognised throughout the world.
We provide all the equipment you need for an awesome surf experience! (No extra cost for equipment during lessons!)

"On behalf of Kapiti College, we would like to thank the team at Wellington Surf Lessons for giving our college kids an amazing surf experience over the last three days. Everyone enjoyed the lessons immensely and we were amazed to see every student successfully surfing within the first day. They captured some great photos on GoPro and also gave out some very nice looking certificates at the end to the event. I highly recommend you book your school with Wellington Surf Lessons".
The girls loved their day surfing! - We had a lot of positive feedback from the parents who stayed for the day and by the way the pics you sent to us are amazing and have been shared to all those who participated, and we've shared them to GirlGuidingNZ too. We also recommended you to the local Wellington leaders, so you may have some enquiries in the New Year.
Thanks guys for giving our international language students a great surfing experience! We have had a lot of great feedback from the students and will be booking them in again soon! Hanne Boon
“Wow, what an experience. We were looking to do something different, exciting and exhilarating for our team event and catching some waves certainly ticked that box! We had minimal experience at the start but by the end we were the ones the beach was watching. Great informative training for Safety, Technique and those little tips to turn us pro. Top Marks for getting our team working together, laughing together and bringing us together as one!!”
Highly recommend taking lessons with this crew whether you're a complete beginner or wanting to improve technique and gain more confidence. Stuart and Lisa are great instructors, i have taken lessons in many places around the world and these guys are top of my list!
First time me and my friend have done surfing and we had the most amazing experience! Stuart was patient and gave very clear instructions! Had so much fun and learnt enough for me to feel confident about going back out there!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Stuart is a very professional and patient instructor who will take you on the right way to become a pro surfer!
I wasn't a very confident surfer before I took lessons. Now that I have spent time learning with these guys, I feel ready to take on any challenge. They were so patient and knowledgable. I could not have had a better time anywhere in the world.
