“Surf Lessons that rock! My 10 year old and 7 year old have started surfing with the great help from Dillon and Mimi at the Surf school at Mangawhai Heads. Customer: zielly20 - Trip Advisor Date of Experience: Feb 2016 ”
“Great instructor - thanks Micky. We had the best time with Mangawhai Heads Surf School. Excellent fun, instruction and boards. Thanks for all your help!!!! Fantastic- highly recommend this surf school! Customer: Hamish Laird - Facebook Date of Experience: Jan 2019”
“The lessons were great and although my 7 year old was by miles the youngest, he was well looked after and was standing in the crazy waves really quickly. Instructors are great and really patient - and the class groups never had more than 5 people in them (although they do go up to 8 per instructor). We waited to see what the weather was like and then just rocked up and booked into the class, although I am sure you would need to book in advance in the peak summer times. Great lessons, that instil confidence. Customer: Jeni Lavin - Facebook Date of experience: January 2016”
