Wellington Surf co. was founded on Stuart & Lisa's love for the ocean. In 2017 they brought together their love for the ocean and formed Wellington Surf Lessons.
Lisa being raised on a unique Island called the Aran Islands of Ireland and a keen environmentalist has grown organically from Wellington Surf Lessons, "We decided we wanted to support our students even further with their surfing by helping them find the right equipment and keep helping them progress with their surfing to a level they were truly happy with and build an awesome local community around the fun of surfing and it just made sense that we would need to set up a surf shop. Since the Covid 19 we decided to buy a warehouse space and build Wellington Surf Lesson with his partner Lisa. Inspired by the surf schools and friendly community vibe they saw in Lisa's home town of Ireland they wanted to bring this back and build a similar fun surf vibe here in NZ. With large following of surf students and 100% customer satisfaction from their surf school they were inspired to build WSCO and continue building on their success in helping and inspiring people to surf. Stuart has been surfing for over 25 years local surfer started surfing at the age of 13 years old and took to it with his father. There are so many health benefits to surfing we've seen over the years, from fresh air, nature, improved mental health and fitness to bringing friends and family together. Surfing definitely improves the quality of peoples lives.
