With over 20 years combined experience in surf coaching and as a team of professionals (primary school teachers, sport coordinators, strength and conditioning coaches and a upcoming professional longboarder) we want to bring our expertise together and create an energised, skill based Holiday Camp for children to progress their surf and skate skills in a safe and encouraging environment.


We will meet at 8:30am at our trailer at the beach access opposite Tay Street, Mt Maunganui. We've chosen this location having explored the coast for a safe, consistent and less crowded surf spot. With ample parking and a grassy area with public benches over looking the surf, its proved to be a wonderful spot to run our sessions.

Following our Surf Session and Morning Tea we will carry out a Skate Session using either Mount Sports Centre, local skate parks or a nearby pump track depending on participants ability. Pick up will be at the same location as the morning drop off, the beach access opposite Tay Street at 2pm.

Children/Parents must arrive with all the kit they will need for a surf, swim and skate. We advise children wear suitable clothing for the day, along with suitable wetsuit accessories (Booties, gloves, hood) if required.

No equipment is provided unless you have organised this with us prior to the sessions.


From 8:30am, your children will be immersed in a world of surf and skateboarding. This is an opportunity for your child to partake in an affordable series of Surf and Skate Lessons.

From a surf session with highly experienced coaches, land based games to warm up, water safety and lifesaving skills and then an indoor skate session (outside if it conditions allow). They will leave with new skills, new friends and a fresh stoke for the sport.

Don't just take our word for it, check out what previous parents have to say!


I couldn't recommend Average Joe's highly enough. We have done their holiday program and 1 on 1 lessons for surfing and skating, and have learnt so much. All of the coaches are awesome, and the kids have the best time. Keep up the good work Joe and team.
