3 Hour Surf Lesson.

West Coast surf has been established at Tauranga bay on the beautiful West Coast of the South Island for the past 18 years.

This beach provides both first timers with a safe and invigorating environment to learn in, as well as providing some world class waves for the more experienced surfers.

Mark Perana is the owner and coach of the business. Mark has been coaching surfing and snowboarding for beyond 25 years and it is truly his passion. Mark is an ISA/SNZ level 2 coach and judge and a NZSBA snowboard examiner, also a past NZ team coach and National title holder.

At West Coast Surf we offer a safe, fun filled, informative and often invigorating lesson for every level of surfer. Whether you are a complete beginner, all ready surfing and want to improve, or need some guidance with your advanced manoeuvres, Mark can help you out.

What others say: "Hi, I just wanted to write to you to say THANK YOU! My Dad loved his lesson last month; I think it was the highlight of his trip to New Zealand. Mark was a great teacher and everything was just perfect – the rain even stopped just as they got in the water."

Great time with Pat !

We had a very pleasant time at Westport during the training. Pat is very patient and dedicate while explaining the theory of sea and surfing. He didn't hesitate to join us in the water to help us and cheer us on ! We therefore could quickly jump on the board and "surf" a few waves. A real accomplishment for newbies like us ! Thanks again Pat, we now have the basics to continue our learning :-)

3 kids in lesson

First of all , mark took the kids thru all the talk on the beach and helped them understand the break we surfed and how to handle the surf that day which was fantastic. he then gave time to each of the kids in the water throughout the lesson and brought them to beach a couple of times to practice there jump ups on the beach and let them lead how to get better, then gave them some great tips each. Everyone loved there time with mark at westcoast surf lesson.

So good I went a second time!

I initially did a lesson back in January 2019 with my partner and having never really surfed before it was a new challenge for both of us. We were relatively terrible at surfing but we had such a good time with Pat and his lessons were really helpful that we decided to come back again! We went back in April 2019 and had another lesson with Mark who was just amazing, he is so knowledgeable and lives and breathes surfing. He is a fantastic teacher and even helped us to eventually stand up which was quite monumental for us both. Set on a beautiful westcoast beach I would highly recommend as it has now also giving me the surfing bug! Thanks Mark and Pat!

Perfect for beginners

I such a great time at this surfing lesson! I was a complete beginner to surfing but Mark taught us everything we needed to know so we felt safe in the water and we got to practice techniques before getting in the water so it wasn’t overwhelming. Mark helped me to get standing up within no time! It was amazing and probably the highlight of my New Zealand trop so I thoroughly recommend west coast surf, especially for beginners like me!

Phenomenal Surf Lesson!

Having previously had a few surf lessons I can safely say this was in a different league. Mark was absolutely brilliant! He was very patient relaxed and good fun. He covered everything right from the basics and I now feel I could hire a board and know exactly what I need to practice to improve and would feel comfortable doing so! I cannot recommend this highly enough! Tauranga bay is also a stunning place to learn to surf. Thank you Mark!
