  • Its offical…this Pixie can surf! Thank you to Mags from Lion Rock Surf Shop at Piha…she is an amazing teacher xxx Can see where my spare time is going now haha!

  • Resounding success. All loved it, particularly Tui (and me vicariously). We were all so impressed with the quality and consistency of the lessons and were thrilled with how much the girls gained from it. Many thanks to you and Natalie. So the plan is for us to sign  the girls up to the 10 class thingi and try for at least one class per weekend. I am also keen to try so I guess will need a private lesson or several. I am working on the other mothers too.
