Improve your skills with the help of one of Tauranga’s top surfing trainers

Travis McCoy, Tauranga-based surf trainer and owner of South Pacific Surf has loved the art of surfing for as long as he can remember. Travis’s greatest joy is being able to share this passion as a surfing trainer, helping people of all ages and levels find their stoke by giving back the magic surfing has given him!

Growing up here in New Zealand and starting surfing at the tender age of 11 with his old man he got hooked and spent the rest of his days surfing and travelling the untapped New Zealand coastline chasing swells far and wide scoring the pumping waves.

Travis has had experience surfing competitively in the New Zealand surfing circuit for many years and been featured in several New Zealand surfing magazines a number of times. After scoring jobs in Ireland, Mexico and finally Indonesia as a surf trainer at Mentawai Surf Camp, he learnt the ins and outs on running a successful business in the art of chasing waves so thought he would bring that back to his home land where this has all began! So if its from learning how to surf and understanding the fundamental basics, or you already have the basics wired and your trying to improve on certain skills, to chasing waves when the swells are on the pump, or finally if your the ultimate thrill seeker and want to chase big spitting hell for leather slabs we have you covered here at South Pacific Surf where we are a fully mobile school and fully mobile surf tour company, we are itching to get you under our wing and show you what magic awaits you out here in our oceans!
