Wellington Surf Lessons is committed to being a positive force in the local community through our environmental and community initiatives.

We want to give back to the local community that continually supports us as well as encourage those around us to help look after the beach!

Leaving a positive impact in people’s lives through our passion for surfing and the ocean is such an amazing achievement.



Our goal is to provide fun forfiling jobs, within the local community for instructors aged 16 and older. Our instructor training programs are aimed at giving our employees for confidence in how to teach and run surf classes.

We offer a range of surf lessons at Lyall Bay, Kapiti Coast and Castlepoint. Our staff are highly motivated, fun loving people who are passionate about surf coaching and improving every surfer out in the water. Some of our most popular classes include kids holiday programs, women's programs, surfskate classes and surf camps.

We are currently looking for new surf instructors for the upcoming surf season, so don't miss out on this awesome opportunity!


Plastic pollution is killing wildlife, devastating oceans and threatening the health of our planet. Plastic represents a disconnection. It’s a material designed to last forever that we often use only once. Poorly managed plastic leaks into the sea. The ocean is downhill from everywhere.

Through education that inspires participation, Take 3 is building a global movement of people who are connected to the planet. (

Our staff have made a commitment to pick up 3 x pieces of rubbish each time they visit the beach in an effort to keep New Zealand’s beaches a little bit cleaner. We also aim to organise regular beach cleanups with staff, customers and locals involved.
