Why Top Surf Schools & Pro Surfers Train Using Surfskates

Slide Surfskates are being used by top surf schools in Australia and now at Wellington Surf Lessons to help students progress more effectively.

Surf skate training is a great way to improve your surfing techniques. You can practise manoeuvres over and over again and build up muscle memory during this process. Back in the water everything will click and slide in position. 

Our Slide Surfskates have a special designed front truck that rotates, which allows the skateboard to move and respond just like a surfboard.



“Both of our children have been doing surf lessons with Lisa for the past couple of months. Their progress has been amazing. We couldn’t be happier. Lisa is a fantastic coach who connects so easily with our kids. They absolutely love her. She has fostered a love of surfing in our children that will last them a lifetime. We are truly blessed to have found her and this wonderful school”

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.
