Sean Butler

Jay Piper-Healion

Ana Keelty

Born and raised at Hot Water Beach Sean is as local as they come. For him being a surf instructor isn’t just about teaching people to surf it’s about the whole surfing experience, seeing peoples reaction as they discover a lifelong passion and sharing the thrill of catching your first waves. The ultimate bonus is that he gets to do this in the place he calls home.

Jays another one born and bred in the Coromandel, Jays currently surfing at the highest level in our country competing against New Zealand's best. Jay loves to surf and loves sharing it with others.

Ana is born down south in Timaru but has been spending her last few years living here in the sunny coromandel. Ana is almost always in the ocean or on the beach and we're lucky to have her!

Lessons are held daily around the low tides so you can make the most of your visit to Hot Water Beach and soak in the world famous hot springs. Booking is essential.
