Summer Surf School

Local surf academy opens a world of possibilities for the next generation of surfers.

Surfing is usually considered an activity rather than a sport and rarely pursued as a hobby. Whananaki resident Jill Shuttleworth is out to change that, and has set up her annual surf academy ready for when Summer finally rolls around.

The academy is mainly attended by students of Whananaki School. She provides surfboards and wet suits, teaching kids the basics with the help of parent volunteers. She guides the children the surf experience, supporting them every step of the way. 

In conclusion Jill’s surf academy is an incredible experience for kids of all ages and a worthy investment of time.
