Your Coach

Mark is passionate about board sports. In the summer he loves to be surfing and in the winter he transfers this to riding the snow. Mark has extensive coaching skills in both areas and has been coaching both modalities for 25 plus years.

In the surf he has previously coached the New Zealand team to overseas venues and been a National title holder himself. He has coached Scholastic teams and helped members gain National titles of their own. In the snow he has worked as an instructor and trainer at Mt Hutt for 22 years and is a snowboard examiner for SBINZ helping to teach, coach and mentor the newly enthused to become instructors themselves.

So why not come in and improve your skills learning from Marks vast experience in the field with a Personal Training Session.

Our Area

Tauranga Bay is surrounded by beautiful walks and hosts a seal colony that has an excellent viewing platform and views out to the Tasman sea. The cliff top walk takes you along the edge of the coast line to the light house and beyond to Cape Foulwind and the Star Tavern. There are numerous accommodation options in the area including our own place West Coast Surf Retreat where we can offer package deals on surf and stay.

Your Coach

Hi, my name is Mark Perana and I would love to be your coach.

No matter if you are a beginner, aspiring to be a surfer or you are more advanced and want to improve on those tricks – you have come to the right place.

In my past I had the honor of coaching top level surfers, judging national surfing events and even did some successful competitive surfing myself holding several NZ titles.

Have a look at the different packs I am offering and if you need something individual – just contact me and we will cater something up.

Hope to see you soon!
