Esplanade surf school is located in Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand, we run our school from The Esplanade at St Clair Beach. We are a small but extensive school run by husband & wife team Jason & Evie Newton. We are joined by a team of amazing staff who will offer you extensive learning in a safe and fun environment. We have a strong surfing culture in Dunedin and are spoilt for choice along our beautiful coastlines for surf breaks ranging from smaller fun beach breaks to more advanced waves.

We are a mobile surf school taking advantage of differing conditions and moving to where the best waves are if needed.
We offer learn to surf for beginners through to the more advanced with our friendly experienced instructors who are all trained and qualified.
