Muriwai Surf School
Martin, after many years of thinking about turning his passion for surfing and coaching into a full time adventure, established Muriwai Surf School in 2002.
Slow, small beginnings in the garage at the back of the local shop grew and grew as word of mouth spread.
Soon long summers were spent with the whole family hiring surfboards, body boards and wetsuits and Martin taking lessons.
With great local support, a good relationship with the surf lifesaving club and council, and many years and customers later, we have now progressed to our own premises right by the beach in the Muriwai Regional Park.
A love of the environment has lead to the surf shack being as eco friendly as possible, with locally sourced untreated macrocarpa timber fences and local poured earth paving out the front, as well as alternative power.
We now have over 150 surfboards and 250 wetsuits, as well as blokarts and other beach toys.
