About Ruby 


The Surf Box 

All Womens Surf Coaching 

To me there is nothing more fun than jumping in the water with a couple of my girl mates and sharing the thrill of surfing. There is something very unique about an all Women environment in the water which seems to be a little lighter and less serious. All of our learn to surf lessons are carried out in the beautiful coastal town of Raglan. Come along and see why so many people fall obsessively in love with surfing. 

Meet The Founder Ruby Meade 

Heading 2

Hey I'm Ruby, founder and content creator for The Surf Box. I'm a 26 year old, surfing and fitness enthusiast, who grew up in the quaint surf town of Raglan, New Zealand. I spend most of my time here, but travel often to find the next best wave and adventure.


 I have worked as a surf coach for the past 8 years, spending time pursuing this cause all over the world, where I spent significant time in Central America working solely with Women wanting to take their surfing to the next level.


My passion for surfing, the human body and people led me to complete my bachelor's degrees in both sport, movement and human performance and in teaching pedagogy. 


I started The Surf Box not just as a way to transfer my skills and experience, but also as a way to build up and connect with a community of like-minded people. Life for me is about connection, and I simply cannot think of a better way to connect than through the sport, my passion, of surfing.


 My coaching philosophy is simple. Firstly, having fun should be the number one priority, for everyone. Secondly, learning skills correctly from the start and creating strong foundations is the key to longer-term surf success.


And lastly, but not least, all coaching should be carried out in a way that develops self-belief, empowerment, and enthusiasm in the surfer, so they can continue to progress through the rest of their surfing journey, irrespective of whether a coach is there or not.
