Awesome day out, highly recommend

After the bad weather we’ve had I decided surfing might be fun for a day out and it can be done in rain or shine. It did not disappoint. Che and the team were chilled and professional. They made me feel comfortable and confident with what I was doing. They helped me to stand on the board in less than two hours. The guys he has working for him were very helpful and you could tell surfing was a passion; which made them want to be there. I got the experience on a deal but both my friend and I would happily pay full price based on the experience I had. Highly recommend for individuals or groups. Thanks guys :)

Excellent trip to Te Arai for a beginners session with the crew. They were really welcoming, friendly and very helpful in and out of the water. I’d be keen to return for the Surf Sistas 4 week programme! Cheers!
