Muriwai Surf School is located only 35mins drive from Aucklands central city. Our surf shed is only a one minute walk from the beach. We are located in a regional park which has fantastic walks with great coastal views. The beach is a black sand beach and 45km long. Aucklands West Coast (Tasman Sea) gets plenty of swell which makes it a perfect place for surfers and non surfers looking to escape the hussle and bussle of the city for a few hours (or in my case life). From the surf shed we offer surf lessons, surf coaching, surfboard & wetsuit hire, adventure hire, blokart hire. We are a Kiwi owned and operated family business who pride ourselves on our old school friendly service.

My fiancé and I took the surfing lesson on our last day in NZ and it was such a great way to end this holiday. None of us ever surfed before and we both managed to stand on the board at least once. Thanks to the whole team and especially to Jeremy, we had so much fun. I was a... More

Nice vibes, cool location near the beach and lovely people. First time I had a one-on-one class with surf coach Jeremy. I don't think I've ever learned that much in just one class. Then after cycling in New-Zealand I came back to rent, as this place was one of the nicest places I've been! So if you can definately visit... More

I went down yesterday for my first ever surf session with Victor. He was a nice instructor, easy to chat with and patient. I managed to stand up once before my accident. Dillian tended to my incident and even thought of options for me to get back to the city asap to seek medical attention. The accident was a bummer... More

Worked with Jeremy the Frenchman and he was extremely patient and understanding while working with a group of six beginner surfers that all had struggles and frustrations. That didn't stop his energy from shining through, would highly recommend!

Adam was an excellent teacher who has a keen eye for detail and helped to point out areas that needed improvement. With his help I nailed the “pop up” on my first lesson. I am told all the surfing trainers are equally professional and would highly recommend a one-on-one class for a first or second surfing attempt. All equipment is... More
